Description

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. A supernatural tie-in to the book, Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter, but without the zombies. Based on real-life events and historic documents, though some parts have been fictionalized to fit the story. * Contains some light horror details. "A well-paced page-turner with a most satisfying ending. I couldn't put it down even to walk the dog "-Robert W. Walker, author of Gone Gorilla & The Monster Pit.
