Synopsis: When East German police pulled American Dean Reed's body out of a lake behind the Iron Curtain in 1986, fans and government officials around the world speculated wildly about who caused his death. The handsome singing and acting superstar starred in movies with some of the biggest names of the 1960s and '70s, and women on three continents were happy to share his bed. But Reed was driven to fight injustice, braving gunfire and torture to vocally oppose oppressive governments throughout South America, touching off an international incident with his arrest in the United States and angering his own government with protests against its foreign policies. His knack for showing up wherever history was being written brought money and acclaim, but failed to translate into Hollywood fame.
This is the uniquely American tale of Reed's meteoric rise from a Colorado cowboy to a beloved international star, and of the hand that finally silenced him. For those who remember seeing Reed profiled on 60 Minutes and in the pages of People magazine, or for anyone intrigued by the early years of rock 'n' roll or the liberal activism of the 1960s and 1970s, this is the dramatic investigation of a rebel's life.

About the Author: Chuck Laszewski has been an award-winning newspaper reporter for twenty-six years, most of them at the St. Paul Pioneer Press. While a student at the University of Minnesota in 1978, Laszewski first noticed Reed when the actor showed one of his films on campus. After Reed's death and the collapse of the East German government, Laszewski used his investigative reporting skills to acquire the secret police files on Reed.
Laszewski and his wife Cindy have two children and live near St. Paul, Minnesota.
