About Ruth Markel

Ruth Markel is a noted author, public speaker and the president of RNM enterprises, a leading management consulting firm. She has worked in senior management positions in both private and public sectors for the past forty years. Ruth has lectured on issues concerning negotiation and advancement in organizations at the University of Toronto, the London Business School, and Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University).
 

In addition to several TV and radio appearances, Ruth’s published work includes: 

  • L’Art De Negocier (La Presse, 1988), Une Place Au Sommet (Les Editions La Presse, 1986), Le Defi D’une Carrier (La Presse, 1987), S’affirmer Pour Evoluer (La Presse, 1988), Comment Gerer (La Presse, 1987), Karriere 1st Weiblich (Rowohlt, 1989), Moving Up: A Woman’s Guide To A Better Future At Work (HarperCollins Publishers, 1988), Room At The Top: A Woman’s Guide To Moving Up In Buisness (Penguin Books Canada, 1985), and Der Weg Nach Oben (Econ, 1987).

Due to the tragic murder of Ruth’s son, Dan Markel, she has appeared on 20/20 ABC, Inside Edition, Court TV, and Dateline NBC, and participated in the hit podcast Over My Dead Body, by Wondery. With support from Dan’s friends and extended networks, Ruth has engaged in efforts to change Florida’s restrictive grandparent visitation statutes to provide access to courts for other families facing terrible circumstances.

Ruth hopes to use her platform and the media coverage that is inevitable around the trial and the publicity of Dan’s case to make some sense and provide consolation and consultation to a horrific and powerlessness situation.
 
Homicide doesn’t discriminate. It spans race, religion, socio-economic, and public status. Consumers are hungry for these stories. There are dedicated True Crime conversations around the world (CrimeCon, CrimeFest, Death Becomes Us) and a proliferation of new shows, podcasts, and online communities interested in following these cases.

As Danny’s mother, I have been a prominent figure, but I have never told my full story to the public before now. That, combined with the keen interest in Danny’s murder and the popularity of true crime in general, convinces me that my story will help others through the experiences of complicated grief from murders of children.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

New Groundbreaking Arrest Breaks Open The Dan Markel Murder-for-Hire Case

The Unveiling

Ruth Markel’s The Unveiling (Post Hill Press, September 20th, 2022, $30 Hardcover) is her journey as the mother of a murder victim, her attempts to recover her normal life, despite painful reminders, nonstop trial dates, verdicts, and appeals, and her inspiring battle to get a grandparent visitation bill passed to see her grandchildren.

Sparked by Dan’s story, Florida has a newly-passed legislation that would give grandparents such as Ruth Markel more opportunities to petition courts for visitation with their grandchildren in tragic cases like theirs. With this, the Markels hope that they will enjoy ongoing reunification with Dan’s sons who they have been separated from for so long.

After nearly eight years of endless trials, Charlie Adelson, his former brother-in-law, was recently arrested by the FBI for his connection to the murder of Dan Markel. A testimony to the hard efforts for the Justice for Dan group and his family members, this arrest is a pivotal point in this long-running case that has finally been brought to light
