The Mortician’s Wife

By Maralee Lowder / Genre: Horror, Mystery & Thrillers / Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

The Mortician's Wife

“Heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting, this is a memorable book about loss, redemption, revenge and love.”

Five miles from the new age Mt. Shasta City, the sleepy Northern California town of Dunsmuir plays host to a nightmarish house – the Old Mortuary – where the mortician’s wife spent four decades alone, and some say insane, sleeping in an alcove off one bedroom where she believed the evil spirits of the house could not get to her, harboring terrible secrets.

With the steady flow of dead bodies through the basement and the murderous events upstairs, this is the story of how the Old Mortuary of Dunsmuir became one of the most haunted houses in America as a result of the personality and misdeeds of one man, Horace Carpenter, whose eternal soul most certainly does not rest in peace, as many will attest, and probably never will.

Like everyone else, he’s just trying to survive as best he can in a chaotic and lawless world. Tired of aimless wandering, Dez gains entrance to Detroit, now a walled city ruled by the iron-fisted dictator Terrence McHale. Instead of peace, however, Dez only finds more trouble in the form of a lovely girl who just happens to be Terrence McHale’s only daughter. She’s run away, and Dez finds himself volunteering to go get her.
