“I loved this book. Arthur is the man in the winter of his life. Alone since the passing of his wife, and facing the very real horror of dementia, he makes for an extremely likable but very unreliable narrator. Katie Marie does a fabulous job of giving the reader enough background to make him seem the hero, without slowing the pace of the story. With every turn of the page, I felt that Arthur was that much closer to the end of his mind, but would he be able to solve the mystery of his wife’s death in time” _ D. Weaver
“Sometimes a book that is supposed to be a horror/mystery novel ends up being much more. Arthur, who has lost his wife to murder, is coping with dementia. After he moves to senior living he sees his wife’s ghost who comes to him to ask him to find her murderer. This book was a joy to read. The horror of losing who you are is greater than the thought of ghosts. Great book with a great storyline. Not at all what I expected, in a good way.” _ Stacy B: Amazon Reviewer
