    "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." George Santayana

    In the historical town of Salem a horrific murder has been committed. The prime suspect is a teenage boy found running around naked in the streets covered in blood. His family being the ones murdered. Most believe it to be an open and shut case. Not everyone in the small town, however, believes Malachai Smith did it. Is the quiet boy with good manners another victim of the true murderer, or did he truly commit the heinous murders? He was cleared of a similar murder that took place months before. In that case, three boys testified they'd seen him leave the murder victim's house around the time of the crime. Problem was he had a solid alibi, and his name was cleared. Jamie O'Neill was the boy's former therapist and is convinced the boy is innocent. He persuades Sam Hall to represent Malachai. Sam is high powered attorney with a reputation for winning cases thought to be impossible to win. Jamie also persuades his niece, Jenna, a member of the Krewe of Hunters - a paranormal FBI team, to investigate the crime. With a little help from Jenna's friends, the group will attempt to get to the bottom of what really happened.

    I think this is the perfect read for the Halloween season. Set in Salem, Massachusetts during the middle of Halloween season it reminded me of telling ghost stories at sleepovers as a child, but better. With ghosts from the Salem Witch hunt era making appearances and flash backs from past murders, you get a good murder mystery with a little bit of the history of Salem mixed in. Also, there is a dash of romance included as things heat up between Jenna and Sam. Plus, as an added bonus, Graham included some recipes at the end with ties to the area. I love it when an author does this. I wish more did. I gave this one 4 out of 5 roses.
