Ghosts From the Past by Glen Ebisch
Trying to solve a 60 year old crime is no easy feat, especially if it’s a crime the town wants buried. But Marcie Ducasse, assistant editor of Roaming New England magazine, can’t let this mystery remain a mystery for long.
Publisher’s Description: When Marcie Ducasse, assistant editor of Roaming New England Magazine, makes her first solo trip through northern New England checking into stories of supernatural happenings, she expects to hear some strange tales, not become part of one. But when a farmer tells Marcie about the ghosts of three men hanged in his barn back in the 1940s and then turns up a few hours later hanging up in that same barn, Marcie finds herself up to her neck in a murder investigation.
With the help of Kevin Murray, a local newspaper reporter, Marcie begins digging into the case, and she quickly discovers that even murders committed over sixty years ago are not dead and buried–especially when they take the form of ghosts from the past.
Possible spoilers beyond this point.
Luna Lovebooks says…
To be honest, I am not a huge mystery fan. I have read a few; but, what drew me to this one was the title. While the ghosts weren’t prominent in the story, they still hinted at the paranormal. Sometimes that is all that is needed.
The story drew me in and made me want to keep reading to find out what happens. Marcie and Kevin make a great pair working both together and separate to find the clues to solve the case. However, I was still surprised by who the culprit was! There are places in the story where it slows down and drags a little.
Overall this wasn’t a bad read. I give it three wails. Get it because ghosts wail? I know I’m terrible at jokes just bear with me 😉
