A True Story of Lies, Sports and Murder
by Fran Parker
At Northeast Louisiana University (NLU) in Louisiana, Ivrin Bolden Jr., a twenty-three-year-old pre-med student, his fiancée Joel Tillis and Brenda Spicer become embroiled in a dangerous game of life and death where the clock is counting down. Joel and Brenda are basketball teammates, but they become much closer—rumor is they turned into lovers. There is only one problem: Ivrin’s jealousy. And after both girls are found dead, he becomes the prime suspect in this gripping sports thriller.
As the provocative rumors flew and the police investigation seemed to be leading to dead ends, journalist and Monroe, Louisiana, native Fran Parker became obsessed with the quest for justice. Parker sought the horrifying truth behind the brutal murders, hidden scandals and questionable cover-ups. She undertook a mission the police hadn’t solved: to find the murderer of Brenda and Joel. This led her to pinpoint a person of interest. But can she convince authorities and find the proof needed to bring him to justice while fending off shadowy threats before the killer strikes yet again?
Deadly Triangle: A True Story of Lies, Sports and Murder is a gripping page-turner of clandestine relationships, icy deception, dangerous love gone wrong and violent death that will leave you shaken until the very last page.
