Benjamin's Ghosts by Sylvia Nash




Benjamin Alexander dug into the past to uncover its secrets. His housekeeper guarded his secrets with her life.

Now Enid Gilchrist must draw on her years of experience as a genealogist to duplicate that search and protect those secrets while she unravels the clues to crimes whose consequences have crossed the years to spawn a new criminal and threaten those she loves.


Moreover, she must draw on her strength of will to prevent her feelings for Chief of Police Patrick Mulhaney from hindering their mutual efforts to solve the mystery, bring peace to the dead, and protect the living.



Excerpt

As Enid started back to her office, she heard the click of the light switch, and the lights went out.

“Who’s there? I’m still in here! Turn the light back on, please!” She didn’t hear any footsteps, breathing, or any other sounds. “Oh, shoot again,” she whispered. She felt her away along the readers toward her office on the right.


As she reached the edge of the copier, she caught a glimpse to her left of a figure inside the genealogy room. It started toward her.

Gosh, that excerpt was just a little sip! I had to go to Amazon to read more and really enjoyed meeting the characters there. Please enter my name to win a copy. cjajsmommy (at) gmail (dot) com

PS to Sylvia -- As to my maternal grandfather, I've got two sets of data for him, one appears to be an alias. I've tracked as much as I can without spending money.
