Dublin is rife with magic, mystery… and murder.
When Bonnie Bennett stumbles across a dead body with a ghostly form hovering over it, she must discover if the killer is a witch back from the dead—or a monster more vicious than any she’s ever faced.
After more bodies begin to surface, Bonnie finds the murders coincide with the execution of suspected serial killer Doreen Kealy, a madam who was brutally executed centuries ago for crimes too ghastly to speak of.
Teaming up with her friend Matt Donovan, Bonnie searches dark tunnels beneath Dublin Castle and uncovers hidden secrets within the legendary Book of Kells to find out who is committing these heinous murders. But time is against her, and spirits seek vengeance as Bonnie finds herself plummeting further and further into danger.
Who is the real dread of Dublin? Is Doreen Kealy killing again? Or is a creature of the night intent on leading Bonnie to a bloody fate?
About A.J. Matthews
I wrote my first book at six. A retelling of The Three Little Pigs, illustrated by my grandmother, the book was never picked up and was self-published instead, glued to cardboard with a cover fashioned from wallpaper scraps.
Today, I write stories featuring nice guys (or nice guys in-the-making) in between my other jobs writing research reports for a commercial real estate company, refereeing two young daughters, navigating the teen waters with a too-cute-for-his-own-good son, spoiling a neurotic cat, and making my darling, patient husband shake his head. I’m also an autism mom, chocolate enthusiast, sports-watcher, nacho-eater, and beer-drinker.
A Maryland native, I live in North Carolina now, but dreams of the beach fuel my fantasies, and my characters can often be found strolling in the sand or sailing along a coast.
