By E. Budrich

A paranormal murder mystery.

First Edition release, with extended art, available on Amazon now! Early Release Edition, with limited art, is still available here as PDF.



Dr. Rachel Schaller has three desires: to pass her Psychiatry Boards, to get the prestigious job she’s earned, and most of all, for the nightmares to end. Nightmares about a murder. Her murder. She’s certain they're a manifestation of her stress, but she’s reached her limit. Her husband agrees. He knows she’s on the edge. The dreams come every night. His solution: a trip to Europe after her exams. She loves old castles, so he arranges a getaway to Holzteinberg Castle, a Medieval moated fortress in the heart of Münsterland, Germany.

But Rachel’s nightmares worsen when she learns of the castle’s tainted past: Countess Katerina went mad in the castle and killed herself. Her body was never found. Rachel senses an odd connection to this tortured soul. The longer she remains, the stronger her bond becomes ...  flashes of memories that are not her own reveal the truth about Katerina’s demise. Rachel now knows her nightmares are glimpses of Katerina’s last hours, but why is she seeing them? Is she being haunted? Is she possessed? Is she the reincarnation of a murdered German aristocrat? Or, just plain nuts?

Rachel isn’t sure, but she must choose. If she ignores the truth and says nothing, her nightmares may never end. If she exposes the castle owner’s hidden ancestral disgrace, it will result in a fight and likely end her stay at the castle.

But, the choice is obvious. Her sanity is on the line. And Rachel must speak up … before she herself is silenced.

A silver-tongued devil lives in the South. His name is Richard and he’s married to my sister.

Maria’s sister, Alicia, wanted three things in life: a prestigious career, control over her own destiny, and power over men’s hearts. A husband was not on the list. She used her brains, her wit, and her coy Southern charm to obtain what she desired. And obtain them she did. She had it all ... until she met Richard.

Alicia and Maria never got along, and Maria is torn when she suspects Richard is having an affair. She has no proof. Does she tell Alicia and risk damaging their fragile rapport? Or say nothing and betray her own sense of moral justice? Maria can’t be silent. She arrives to confront Alicia but the Valentine bomb has already hit: a dozen roses delivered to Alicia but addressed to Richard’s mistress. Alicia’s hurt and angry, and out for revenge. She turns to her iron-clad, post-nuptial agreement. Her financial weapon. Problem: it’s missing from the safe. She knows Richard took it.

Now Alicia must choose. Look the other way and stay? Divorce him and lose everything? Or delay, find her post-nup, and send him packing with nothing more than the shirt on his back? The choice is clear. She’ll have her pound of flesh -- her monetary revenge. Southern style.
