$ 16.95

By Edward Lodi

But surely it is not ghosts that are responsible for the grisly crime perpetrated there. A week before Halloween the mutilated body of Kenny "Mumbles," a lowly character familiar to the New Bedford waterfront, is discovered atop the rock, victim apparently of a ritualistic killing. But what was Kenny, who seldom if ever left the city, doing so far from home? And what is the connection, if any, between his murder and a subsequent killing in the seaside resort of Onset? Or to events that happened in Plymouth Colony more than three centuries ago? The police may be stymied, but amateur sleuth Lena Lombardi--for reasons of her own--is determined to uncover the dark secret behind the two hideous crimes. She will solve this baffling mystery. Even if it kills her...
