The Haunting of Dr. Bowen, A Mystery in Lizzie Borden's Fall River, C.A. Verstraete -  125 years later, I give Dr. Bowen - Lizzie's doctor and neighbor -  an opportunity to share his side of things... 

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?

 I'm reading an arc of Scott Kenemore's latest, Zombie-In-Chief: Eater of the Free World, A Novel Take on a Brain-Dead Election.


Kenemore, author of Zombie, Illinois (a funny take on Chicago politics), has the 2016 election pegged dead-on when "The Tycoon" wins the election. His "secret?" He's a zombie! It's like reading about the real-life events - but with zombies and strange twists. Stranger than real life? Well... read it and see!
