Hear Ye, Hear Ye -- Utah Judge Writes Best-selling LDS Mystery
AMERICAN FORK, UTAH -- Being a judge and an author has proven to be a
compelling combination as Clair Poulson uses his unique insight into
the criminal mind to create I'll Find You, the #1 best-selling LDS
"I've worked with so many different kinds of lawbreakers after twenty
years in law enforcement and ten years in the courts-people as tough
as they come," said Clair Poulson. "It is a part of me."
It is with this understanding that Poulson creates a story that is as
gripping as it is believable. At age six, Jeri Satch witnesses her
best friend Rusty Egan being kidnapped and can only yell "I'll find
you" as the stranger speeds away. Now, seventeen years later, Jeri
feels a spark of recognition when she meets a prison inmate who
resembles her childhood friend.
Clair Poulson uses this web of drama, tragedy, and love to paint the
vivid tale of the life of a criminal and the changes that are
possible. "I've witnessed firsthand the struggles of prisoners, and I
have seen ones who could be reformed" he said. "Remarkable changes
can happen when prisoners are touched by the gospel and the right
"I'll Find You has sold the entire first printing of 6,500 copies
since its release one month ago. The response to the book has been
phenomenal. Clair Poulson is the LDS version of John Grisham," said
Robby Nichols, vice president of Marketing at Covenant Communications.
"As our best-selling book, I'll Find You continues to fly off the
shelves-far exceeding our expectations," said Jackie Gibb, assistant
manager of Seagull Book and Tape. "Customers like it because it is a
book that breaks the mold. It isn't just a mystery or a romance, but
an intriguing combination of both."
I'll Find You by Clair Poulson (14.95 softcover and $24.95 book on
cassette) is available at Seagull Book and Tape, Deseret Book, and

No one, not even Jeri Satch herself, could explain exactly why she
had taken a job hundreds of miles away from her family, friends, and
Warren, her perfect boyfriend. It was just something she had to
do -- because it felt right.
Assigned to work with the bookkeeping staff at a minimum security
prison, Jeri was invited to tour the facilities. There she saw a
strong young man with piercing blue eyes. Could it be Rusty?
When she was just six years old, Jeri has witnessed her best friend,
Rusty Egan, being kidnapped by a menacing stranger. As the old green
car sped away with Rusty inside, Jeri screamed, "I'll find you!"
Those words-that promise-had haunted her for seventeen years.
As years passed, thoughts of Rusty were never far away from Jeri's
mind. And she never ceased to watch for the one thing that would
identify him-his unforgettable blue eyes.
The muscular inmate named Randy Moore wasn't sure how he knew the
attractive young woman who was staring at him. But the name she
murmured-Rusty-sent a shiver down his spine, and made long-forgotten
memories claw for the light of day. He didn't have time for this.
With only months to go before his parole, all Randy could think about
was the half a million dollars he had hidden, and the serial killer
who would soon be on his trail.
Brimming with intrigue, suspense, and an unlikely love, I'll Find You
by Clair M. Poulson tells the incredible story of a young woman's
search for a long-lost friend, and the adventure of a lifetime that
