Best selling author, Emmy-nominated investigative reporter and award-winning journalist Michele McPhee has spent two decades covering terrorism, murder, mobsters, and corruption for television, newspapers and radio. Her investigative work has led to gunpoint threats delivered by angry Boston mobsters, a frightening encounter on KKK-protected dirt roads in Arkansas, threats from gang bangers, and IRS audits. She chased Gianni Versace’s killer around South Beach, Miami; snuck into John Gotti’s wake in Queens, New York; and posed as a mob moll with an undercover NYPD detective targeting fight fixing in Las Vegas.
McPhee has been a commentator on breaking news for national programs on ABC World News, CNN; MSNBC; and the Fox News Network. She is the recipient of many journalism awards, including the Society of the Silurian’s Feature News Award for her New York Daily News 9-11 coverage. She was awarded First Place for Serious Column in the Boston Herald by the Associated Press.
