Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes local authors Barbara Schroeder and Clark Fogg to the store to present their new book, Beverly Hills Confidential, on Wednesday, September 5th at 7pm.Beverly Hills Confidential re-examines the sensational and never-to-be forgotten stories of the past century, including the Charlie Chaplin paternity trial, the mystery surrounding the death of Jean Harlow's MGM-mogul husband, the heinous Menendez murders, the ill-fated Van Cleef & Arpels heist, and the much-publicized shooting of high-powered publicist Ronni Chasen. Beverly Hills Confidential shows how greed, jealousy, passion, corruption, and sometimes just simple bad luck turned the once-idyllic movie star sanctuary into a haven for headlines.Barbara Schroeder has won multiple Emmy awards for her work as an investigative reporter. She received a National Gracie Award for a documentary on child abuse and was part of the news team that received a National DuPont award for coverage of the Rodney King trial. Clark Fogg is the Senior Forensic Specialist at the Beverly Hills Police Department Crime Lab, where he has worked since 1983. He has conducted more than thirty thousand crime scene investigations, participated in more than one hundred homicide/death investigations, and testified in federal and state courts in more than two hundred cases.
