Laura Caldwell Is Red Hot Lies

November 18, 2008

Meet Laura Caldwell, an attorney and the author of the upcoming crime novel, “Red Hot Lies”. She was recently attacked in what appeared to be a scene right out of her book. See her biography, photos, and video here.

Laura was attacked last Thursday night as she jogged through Lincoln Park in Chicago. The eeriness of the attack is that the scene was right out of her latest novel, “Red Hot Lies”. Two men approached her while she was jogging and kicked her down, smashing her face into the pavement and knocking out her teeth. They asked her for money, but when she told them she didn’t have any, they took her iPod instead. As Laura herself puts it, “Yep, kind of got my butt kicked.”
