Editorial Reviews


"After spending hundreds of hours interviewing key players, reviewing time lines, and talking Peterson into taking lie-detector tests, [Armstrong's] opinion changes. The polygraph tests are the big news here. . . . With plenty of access to Peterson and his family (and many never-before-seen photos), this insider offering does a credible job of presenting a decidedly different point of view."  —Booklist

"I have read your book, which I thought was an excellent treatise on this whole process. It seems to me that you've done more research in drilling down on this person and the facts in this situation, maybe even more so than the prosecutors."  —Dr. Phil McGraw, Dr. Phil Show, introducing Derek Armstrong as a guest on the show

"Drew Peterson says a new book about him—due out this week—looks too much at the negative side of things."  —WBBM Chicago (CBS)

"Peterson had agreed to take the examination at the request of Derek Armstrong, the author of the recently published book Drew Peterson Exposed. . . . 'I started to come to the conclusion in my own mind that he might be guilty,' Armstrong said." — Mike Celizic, contributor, TODAYShow.com

"In May, Drew Peterson took a lie detector test at the request of author Derek Armstrong. The results, published in a new book, Drew Peterson Exposed, revealed Peterson showed deception on three occasions when asked about Stacy's disappearance. Peterson was deceptive when asked about the last time he saw Stacy, if he knows her whereabouts, and about a phone call from Stacy saying she was leaving him."  —The Early Show (CBS)

"Peterson [is] the subject of a tell-all book where he describes the day Stacy goes missing. Tonight, the prime-time exclusive, the author who grilled Peterson for hours and caught it all on tape." Nancy Grace, host, The Nancy Grace Show

"The new book Drew Peterson Exposed, about the former Bolingbrook police officer and his dead third wife and missing fourth wife, is billed as a 300-page news story. And it does have some news."  —Chicago Sun-Times

"Derek Armstrong has appeared on FOX News, Inside Edition, and Good Morning America to tell the troubling story of a man condemned by the tabloids before his case ever went to trial. Armstrong's book presents alternative theories, new evidence, uncovers shoddy police work, and reveals the results of an independent polygraph test undergone by the accused."  —In The Hills: A Magazine of Country Living

Drew Peterson Exposed is a fascinating, controversial, and fast read that provides witness statements, statistics, timelines, and dramatic results of polygraphs. But it's the detailed accounts in narrative form (written like a good novel) that fill in the blanks about the man, Drew Peterson, that I found most intriguing and most revealing. These narratives, obtained through direct interview by the author and then spliced cleverly in the book, are where the character and personality of Drew Peterson are shown. I came into the book with a bias as to Peterson's innocence or guilt after seeing him on TV, and nothing in the book changed this view; on the contrary, I came away from it with a stronger conviction of Peterson's guilt and a belief that he is a textbook sociopath, who hides the worst kind of darkness while charming some into believing his lies.

One thing I noticed while reading was an incredible sense of déjà vu, and the case that kept coming to mind was that of Scott Peterson (also a textbook sociopath), who insisted that his wife, Laci (the name eerily similar to Drew Peterson's wife, Stacy), had disappeared. Scott Peterson's story was found to be a lie when his dead wife and baby washed up on the beach. Drew Peterson's wife is yet to be found, and although the book gives me the impression that Drew Peterson believes he's smarter than those investigating one wife's death and another wife's disappearance, I feel confident that the truth will be uncovered.

After reading the book, I was left with two questions: (1) if, in fact, Drew Peterson had nothing to do with Stacy's disappearance, why isn't he using his police skills to find her and put the investigation to rest? and (2) what are the statistics about two wives either dying or disappearing under questionable circumstances?

In high profile cases such as Drew Peterson's, we're bombarded with news stories and speculation, but very little factual information. Author and crime investigator Derek Armstrong takes us behind the scenes of Sgt Drew Peterson to show us family photographs and documents that we'd not otherwise be privy to. Having taken the class "History as Bibliography" taught by Dr. Don Carleton, who assisted Walter Cronkite with his autobiography, I can say that Armstrong did his work correctly by questioning the narratives presented within the book like he would witnesses in court.

Not only is the information appropriately questioned, it is presented in a logical and interesting manner. Armstrong's skill as a writer took a narrative which could otherwise become monotonous and created a fascinating read.

Like most readers of these types of books, I came to "Drew Peterson Exposed" with a preconceived notion of Peterson's situation. Clearly, from the diverging opinions of others who've read the book Armstrong allowed us to draw our own conclusions which is the best way to handle the story. While I didn't change my mind, I am now approaching the case with a good deal more information than I had before thanks to Mr. Armstrong's enlightening narrative.

This is the first in-depth look at the days of Drew's life that the media never uncovered. This is the most inside information you'll get from being on the outside of the story. The author used his time with Drew to build trust and got some amazing access. The polygraphs reveal the answers to questions people have been asking for the past year. This is a well-written, thoroughly researched look at the case America has been talking about but until now didn't have all the information to make an informed opinion. Very interesting.

This books paints Mr Peterson as the perfect husband, father, cop and friend that you will ever meet... He is funny beyond belief, knows nobody that has the facts better together and is loved by one and all... On the other hand his wife left him and he seems not to care too much, or that his children no longer have a mother. OK, he is presently serving time in the pen for his 3rd wife's murder, his 4th wife is still missing and seems to have met an untimely demise. Not so perfect anymore. I started reading this book and saw it was a 'Drew explains it all away for good this time' sort of book. I got to page 35 and read how he keeps Stacy's (4th wife) Harley Davidson Speedster cleaned and polished waiting for her much anticipated return... There is no such thing as a Harley Davidson 'Speedster', it's a Sportster, if you look at page 57, top picture, you can see, it's a Sportster... Made me wonder what else this book got wrong... Further reading leads you to believe if you disagree with Drew you are retarded, a druggie, a criminal, just plain stupid and wrong wrong wrong... The author tends to support this man and then throws him under the bus, I don't know why this book was written really, what is the point ? I was looking for a story on the facts of the Drew Peterson case that was all over the news a few years back and got a strange story from a strange person... And the photos are all over the place, Drew the caring father, Drew the good cop, Drew being funny, Drew taking a lie detector test, Drew on the set for an interview, Drew's backyard, ad nauseam... After reading awhile I figured that if this guy kept his mouth shut and kept his opinions to himself he may have been able to avoid the prison term... Not a good book to read, not very well thought out, not very well written...Read more ›
