    She knew of Jordan’s history as a journalist - he had a distinguished career with the Associated Press before going into public service - and laid out the horrifying true details of her family life that eventually became “Descent to Sudden Death,” Jordan’s sixth book, which he signs 2-4 p.m. Saturday at Bardstown Booksellers.
