Black Hills Native Writes SD Mystery

Dan Jorgensen lived in the Black Hills and was a journalist in the area during the 1970s and 1980s.  KELOLand reports Jorgensen wrote his seventh book about an 1890s murder in Wind Cave.  Having worked as a journalist in his past, a real life mystery (later ruled as natural causes) worked as inspiration for his new historical fiction book.  This new book, And the Wind Whispered, is set to release June 1st.  Jorgensen plans to hold a book signing at Mitzi's Books in Rapid City at 1pm on June 13th, 2015.
