Local Author Discussion

Local North Jersey author and retired NJ trooper, John E. O’Rourke will be holding an author talk on his book Mystery, Millions & Murder in North Jersey on Tuesday, June 11th at 7 pm. The book is a true crime tale of the kidnapping and killing of Exxon’s Sidney Reso. On a spring morning in Morristown in 1992, authorities discovered a car idling in a driveway with the door open and the driver missing. After they learned the driver was Sidney Reso, the president of Exxon International, the FBI joined the investigation. Over the next two months, law enforcement received cryptic communications that led to a cat-and-mouse chase for those responsible. Retired cop Arthur Seale and his wife, Irene, demanded one of the largest ransoms in U.S. history, and authorities struggled to solve the case. Author John E. O’Rourke recounts the crime that rocked a sleepy community and brought the nation’s eyes to North Jersey.
