True Crime novelist Frank Weber will sign copies of his award winning series: “Murder Book,” “The I-94 Murders” and “Last Call” on the sidewalk CatTale’s Books & Gifts in downtown Brainerd on Tuesday, June 23, from 10 a.m. to noon.

As the Clinic Director at CORE Professional Services, P.A, Weber’s work has ranged from assessing murderers chained to the cement floor in the basement of a prison to providing therapy for wealthy professionals who have engaged in multiple affairs. He has testified as an expert witness in numerous sexual assault and homicide cases and has received the President’s Award from the Minnesota Correctional Association for his forensic work.

Weber has presented at state and national psychological conventions and teaches college courses in psychology and social problems, including training law enforcement agencies at Central Lakes College and as a speaker for the Criminal Justice programs at Inver Hills Community College.

To relieve some of the stress that he encountered during his forensic career, Weber turned to fiction writing as a way of detaching from the human tragedies that are routinely part of his caseload Using his unique understanding of how predator’s think, knowledge of victim trauma, and actual court cases, Weber penned three true crime novels including “Last Call” (2019), “The I-94 Murders” (2018), “Murder Book” (2017) and his fourth “Lying Close,” to be released in the fall. His thrillers involve actual Minnesota communities and businesses, and authentic historical information on Minnesota.

The event is free and open to the public.
