Gruesome deaths haunt the industrial city of Fall River, Massachusetts.
Dr. Seabury Bowen—physician to the infamous Lizzie Borden—swears he’s being stalked by spirits, though his beloved wife thinks it’s merely his imagination. But the retired doctor insists that neither greed nor anger provoked the recent sensational axe murders in Fall River. Rather, he believes the city is poisoned by bad blood and a thirst for revenge dating back to the Indian and Colonial wars.
Now, two years after the Borden murders, Dr. Bowen is determined to uncover the mysteries stirring up the city’s ancient, bloodthirsty specters. Can he discover who, or what, is shattering the peace before Fall River runs red? Or will he be the next victim?
Part mystery, part love story, The Haunting of Dr. Bowen reveals the eerie side of Fall River as witnessed by the first doctor on the scene of the legendary Borden murders.
Up for your reading pleasure, a new post on the always-interesting UK-authored site, GreyDogTales.com about Lizzie Borden - "Skipping the Dark Fantastic." If you don't know the full Borden story, there's some good stuff here.
Great background and some talk on the upcoming Lizzie Borden movie - and there's also an interview with me talking Lizzie, her supposed guilt, and all that good stuff.
