About Dave Tevelin


“Dave Tevelin’s talent for seamlessly weaving his fictional Jake Katz into true crime stories is yet again on display in Three Dead in Starbucks. Having been one of the original detectives on this case, I know the details and was still swept away by his excellent storytelling. His depth of research into the smallest of details will transport the reader back to Georgetown in the 1990’s as the case unfolds."

Jim Trainum, Former D.C. Metropolitan Police Department Detective

“Although laced with fiction, Mr. Tevelin’s Siege Of The Capital captures the essential elements of Hamaas Khaalis’ takeover and the drama of those thirty-nine hours. He managed to make the complexity of the incident into a very readable story.”

Earl Silbert, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia
