Creepy but good

Happy Friday!

This week I thought I should tell you about a book

I just finished.  Where Monsters Dwell by Jorgen Brekke

is a book about a horrific murder in the Edgar Allan Poe

Museum in Richmond, Virginia and a very similar one in

a library in Trondheim, Norway.  These murders are also eerily

reminiscent of a spate of murders in the 16th century in Europe.

The murders from the present day both seem to have a connection

to a handwritten book that is bound in parchment made from human

skin.  If you can handle that, then settle in for a good read.  The story

is well told and  moves along quickly but not too quickly; suspense

continues throughout and the denoument is satisfying and surprising.

Check it out:
