No
one noticed anything suspicious about the death of a wounded soldier at
the height of the Civil War—not, that is, until almost a hundred years
later.

In 1957, young Washington, D.C., police sergeant Ben
Carey heads up a team of officers in a dilapidated house three blocks
from the Capitol. Though Carey’s career is on the rise, his marriage is
circling the drain, and as he spends more time at the office, he
discovers there is something not quite right about this decaying old
home. It harbors some dark secrets—connecting him to the long-dead
soldier and others in ways he can't understand. With his personal life
in shambles, and forces from within the house vying for his attention,
Carey casts reason aside and begins an investigation to uncover the
truth about what happened in this haunted place. As he peels back the
layers of history, he finds courage and love, but also deception, greed,
jealousy, and murder.

Twisting through time—between an America
torn by Civil War and the prosperous 1950s—Murder Bay is a mystery that
spans eras and the gulf dividing what can and cannot be explained.

“The impressive first in a historical series, which effortlessly
alternates between Washington, D.C., in 1862 and the same city 95 years
later...this debut shows definite promise.” —Publishers Weekly

“Very nicely done....Recommended.” —Library Journal 

“An involving, period-perfect story. The action is fast-paced and convincing...the characters are expertly drawn.” —ForeWord

About the author

David R. Horwitz was born in Washington, D.C., the son of a D.C. police officer and a piano teacher. Raised in suburban Maryland, David read voraciously, wrote short stories, and biked into the city whenever he could. He studied journalism and Russian in college, wrote for the school paper, and earned a degree in information systems. In 2000, he and his wife moved to rural Minnesota, where he programmed computers by day and wrote on nights and weekends. David's dream of writing full-time ended when he died in 2004. He left behind his wife of ten years, parents, siblings, and the manuscripts that would become the Ben Carey mystery series. Murder Bay was his first book.
