Former teacher writes mystery set in Tucson

Tucsonan Ken Radon has written his first novel, “The Other Son,” which is set in the Old Pueblo.

Published by Xlibris, the book is a mystery-police thriller.

In the fictional story, Mike Groman, captain of the Tucson Police Department’s Homicide Unit, and two rookie cops investigate the gruesome murder of a prominent local businessman.

“Their search through a mazelike trail of evidence led them to a troubled, yet mentally gifted serial killer, who had struck in other states,” the cover sleeve reads. “Mike and his detectives, playing a deadly game of Beat the Clock, set a trap for the assassin in an attempt to end his murderous rampage.”

Radon is a retired schoolteacher who has lived in Tucson for more than 30 years.

Tucsonan’s story featured on ‘The Locator’

A Tucson woman will be featured in the second-season premiere of the hit WE television series “The Locator,” which airs at 9 p.m. (ET) March 21.

In the one-hour episode, Tucson native Wendy seeks the help of professional locator Troy Dunn in finding her biological mother, who disappeared from her life when she was a child. However, Wendy’s story takes a hurtful turn when her mother doesn’t want to see her after being located by Troy.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
