About Deadly Crossroads:
Imagine it’s 1852 and you are living in Concord, Massachusetts. Civil War is looming and Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin has fueled passions, North and South to fever pitch. Then a young woman’s body is pulled from the Concord River, a lady who supposedly was in dire melancholy and took her own life. Dr. Josiah Bartlett is suspicious, and suspects murder. The village illuminati— Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Nathanial Hawthorne, Bronson, and Louisa May Alcott are all in town. Are they amongst the suspects? The Sheriff does not want Bartlett intruding on his own Turf. The mystery deepens when the victim’s diary is found which indicates she was in love and anything but on the verge of suicide. But she is at a deadly crossroads and so is the good Doctor Bartlett whose own life is in jeopardy.
