Murder Bay

David R. Horwitz 
<i>The impressive first in a historical series, which effortlessly alternates between Washington, D.C., in 1862 and the same city 95 years later. . . . This debut shows definite promise. </i>—<b><i>Publishers Weekly</i></b><br /><br /> Ben Carey, a Korean War veteran newly promoted to police sergeant, laments the impending end of his marriage while being befuddled by the ghosts who seem to be haunting the dilapidated old building housing his new office. Are they a figment of his normally rational imagination, or an echo of the previous century and a long-buried mystery with roots in the Civil War and doomed love?<br /><br /> As Carey peels back the layers of time, he discovers greed, deception, love, jealousy, and murder.<br /><br /> <i>An involving, period-perfect story. The action is fast-paced and convincing . . . the characters are expertly drawn</i>. —<b><i>ForeWord</i></b><br /><br /> <i>Very nicely done. . . . Recommended. —</i><b><i>Library Journal</i></b><br /><br /> <i>Horwitz [sets up] the plot nicely with dual narratives, palpable emotions, and believable investigative habits. —</i><b><i>Baltimore Sun</i></b><br /><br /> <i>Horwitz is adept at writing scenes that make you want to stop, pause, rub your eyes, and share the passage with a friend who loves good ghost stories. It’s hard to pause too long, though, because this is the kind of book that is hard to put down.</i> —<b><i>Donna Miller</i></b> (
