In the news: ‘The Girls Are Gone’ authors visiting Sweet Reads

Please read this story from the Austin Daily Herald about Michael Brodkorb and Allison Mann’s upcoming book event at Sweet Reads Books in Austin, Minnesota on Saturday, May 11, 2019, from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM.

“Two girls are abducted from their home

The search drags on for two years as their father never gave up the search for his children. In those years, a conspiracy is unraveled by law enforcement, ultimately ending with the arrest of their mother, along with three other people, after the girls are found alive on a horse ranch in a dramatic turn that could only be found in a New York Times best selling crime-thriller.

But, this isn’t the plot of any work of fiction. Instead, it’s a non-fiction telling of the events surrounding the abduction of Samantha and Gianna Rucki on April 19, 2013.

Allison Mann and Michael Brodkorb, the authors of the book ‘The Girls Are Gone,’ will be talking about the book and the case from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday at Sweet Reads.

Mann and Brodkorb, who come from two different backgrounds, give perspectives of both a  participant and reporter involved in the events as they unfolded.

Mann worked as a paralegal in the law firm that represented the father of the two girls, David Rucki, while Brodkorb was an online reporter for the StarTribune, writing several stories between the time the girls went missing to when they were located on Nov. 18, 2015, on a ranch in northern Minnesota.

“What makes it such an important story is unfortunately, it can happen anywhere,” Brodkrob said.

In the news: ‘Authors bring their true crime book to Scout & Morgan Books’

Please read this story from the Isanti County News about our upcoming book event at Scout & Morgan Books in Cambridge, Minnesota on Saturday, March 2, 2019, from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM.

Allison Mann and Michael Brodkorb have spent the last two years sharing the true story of the Rucki family after both were exposed to the disappearance of the two children through their careers.

Mann, a paralegal, and Brodkorb, a Star Tribune writer at the time of the incident, will be hosting an event from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. March 2 at Scout & Morgan Books in Cambridge, where they will discuss the book and how the story of the Rucki girls helped bring awareness to the issue of family abduction and missing children across not only the state of Minnesota but the country as a whole.

It was while at work that Mann came across the Rucki family’s case.

“I work as a paralegal at a small law firm in Minneapolis,” Mann said. “This case literally walked through our door. After getting to know the family and watching all that happened to them, I became passionate about following the case through all of the legal channels, even when it didn’t involve my office.”

During the criminal trials, Mann met Brodkorb, and through their mutual vested interest in the case, they joined forces to tell the story.

“My work on this case began when I was writing for the Star Tribune,” Brodkorb said. “As this story evolved, so did my work. I went from writing stories for the Star Tribune to later writing this book.”

“‘The Girls Are Gone’ was born on the idea that the story of the Rucki family is too important not to tell,” Mann said. “Many families in our state and across the country are impacted by not only divorce but parental or family abduction. Being able to bring awareness to the issue and give a voice to these victims was all the motivation we needed.”
