With Halloween 2-weeks away, here’s some deliciously spooky crime fiction.
The Sun Down Motel has been around for years, and so have the ghosts haunting it. The cigarette smoker, the battered woman in the floral dress, and the little boy who drowned in the pool.
They all appear in this story, but not all are necessarily inherent. Make no mistake, this is a crime fiction story and a good one.
Carly Delaney’s Aunt Vivian disappeared from the motel in 1982 where she worked the night shift. Carly is determined to find out what happened and ends up in Fell, New York, working the night shift at the same motel.
Her research reveals that a few women were murdered in the area and she begins further excavation. At her side, her roommate Heather and Nick, who has his own dark history in Fell.
I loved the hell out of this book by Simone St. James and think you will too.

I worked in a hotel one summer, and your review brought back some great memories. Maybe I’ll add this title to my amazon wish list and order it during the next big sale…

You’d love it Tanis 🙂
I wasn’t sure what to expect with this novel: Thriller, horror story, mystery? And it turned out to be all three, and seamlessly so. What an incredibly terrific read this one was.
Seamless is an excellent word for this. Happy you enjoyed it as much as I did. Nice to hear from you and thanks for dropping by 🙂
