Why This? A Presidential asssination, a bodysnatching, a heroine with the last name Pigbush…and it’s historical fiction? Who could resist? The front cover also promises that it will be “deliciously macabre”.  Not just macabre, but deliciously so.  There’s also, get this, a reader’s guide. I’m so in.

How exciting!
