Overall, I found it to be an enjoyable story to go along with Lizzie Borden, and would recommend this book if you have read that one. Though it explores a slightly different facet of the paranormal genre, it fits nicely into the world that Verstraete had already built. Reviewed by Kaitlin
Verstraete delivers a haunting bit of historical fiction that takes Dr. Bowen, a peripheral character in the Lizzie Borden affair, and puts him center stage in a separate (but somehow linked) murder mystery.
This was a fun read! The author's injection of actual trial testimony at the start of every chapter was effective in interweaving fact and fiction, giving us glimpses of the doctor's history that are helpful in understanding his mindset & motivation. Verstraete's love of her subject matter is evident and her book left me wanting (more than ever) to go ghost hunting in Fall River!
Everyone is fascinated with that case, even writing songs about it. The author adeptly fills in the blanks that history left gaping. There are plenty of twists, odd characters, action, and even a bizarre development at the end.
