Though I’ve written several scary novels, some more horror than anything, Bones in the Attic, my latest Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery is the first that focuses on Halloween.
When I first started writing it, I wasn’t thinking about it being a Halloween book, but it definitely is, but not in the way you might think.
For those of you who have read any of the RBPD mysteries know that a lot of every book is about family issues, and this one is no different. It begins with Detective Milligan’s daughter Beth and her high school art club decorating an abandoned house for Halloween. They intend to make money for their club by selling tickets to their Haunted House.
When one of the members decides to explore the old house and finds a skeleton in a trunk in the attic, their plans are doomed. Or are they?
Of course the majority of the book focuses on the RBPD trying to find out who the bones belong to, and why were they in a trunk?
As always, there is more about what is happening with the various families of the police department: There is an issue with Sergeant Abel Navarro’s widowed father, more about Sergeant Strickland’s daughter with Down syndrome, the romance between Police Chief Tucker and Mayor Devon Duvall, and a crisis with the mayor’s daughter.
And, to make it even more intriguing, there is a bit threat to all of the beach community of Rocky Bluff.
I hope some of you will try it out! Though it is a series, each book is complete when it comes to the mystery.
