Murder & The Supernatural Nov 2, 2004
The tranquility of a small New York town is shattered by a grisly murder in a local church. Police detective David Stone, a man trying to come to grips with the death of his wife, is called in to investigate this rather gruesome crime. This is far beyond the typical murder of a young girl. A note left at the crime scene makes it perfectly clear that Jack the Ripper had reappeared after a hundred years to begin his grisly campaign of crime. Is this possible? The crime makes it crystal clear that whoever the culprit is, he has extensive medical knowledge and the means to perpetrate this sort of crime. The murder threatens to continue his killing rampage, and his threat brings to America Charlie Warren, a brilliant forensic investigator from the United Kingdom.
Charlie is an attractive young woman with her own troubled past and dark secrets. Together with David Stone, they try to solve this puzzling murder and the person or persons involved. As this unlikely pair dig deeper into the mystery they fall in love and discover the solutions to their own problems lies in each other and in God.
Michael Campbell has crafted a very believable and wonderfully written first novel. His work as a critical care nurse and experience as a military medic help blend reality to this story. If you like a good murder mystery with a touch of the supernatural then you'll like this book.
Couldn't put it down! Sep 24, 2003
When I started reading the book, I couldn't put it down!! If you want a book that will keep your attention throughout then this is the book for you. Great research on Jack the Ripper and other characters. Neat twist (or continuation) to an infamous story. I think this is an excellent book from a fledgling writer and am very anxious to read his next accomplishments. If his future books are as thrilling as this one, he can expect me to buy and recommend them!
