Murder is serious business, and
Lisa Eisemann's interest in this history is genetic: her grandmother was the first policewoman in Salinas during a time of growth and turbulence in the history of that town.
Licensed as a private investigator in 1995, and encouraged by the Salinas Police Department's interest in a historical yearbook, she was able to research and write a book not only about Mae Eisemann, but one which included all the characters of the police department from the time it was authorized in 1903. The First Policewoman, A History of the Salinas Police Department is a history of the police department in Salinas, including Eisemann's grandmother, Mae Eisemann, the first policewoman of that town.
She has earned high praise from the Salinas Police Department for her careful research:
"Lisa Eisemann took on the task of researching over 100 years of police history, including the story of her grandmother as the first police woman in Salinas, and provided this department with an outstanding book detailing events long forgotten. The importance of knowing our history and of having the current staus of this department recorded has benefited the entire department. In particular, Lisa found that one of our officers had been killed in the line of duty, something unknown to our department until discovered by her. That officer's name has since been placed on the fallen officer's memorials and his family is forever thankful." -- Chief Daniel Ortega, Salinas Police Department
The success of her first book prompted her to continue her research, which has resulted in an ongoing series of Murder, Salinas Style books. The murder stories are fascinating accounts of actual cases, many of which are still unresolved.
Unlike the first book, which contained no gang related murders, Murder, Salinas Style: Book Two details the birth of the Nuestra Familia prison gang and street gangs in Salinas. The graphic and bloody murders of the 1970s tell the story of a conflict that continues to plague the city that now boasts one of the highest murder rates per capita in the country. Murder, Salinas Style: Book Three relates the details surrounding the death of the city's youngest lawman.
Lisa's latest releases include the exciting "Escape from Soledad Prison" and "Roll Call - The Mayors of Salinas".
