Spring City Terror 1903
a novel by Sean Michael Malone
Historical Fiction - Thriller - Folk Tales
ABOUT THE BOOK:
In 1903, the world marches toward modernity. The first World Series of baseball has been held, and everyday technology, from carriages to telephones, changes and pivots with each sunrise. The natural world is encroached upon and also offered new protection under dramatic new steps of a bold Theodore Roosevelt. Yet Chicago Tribune reporter Roger Merrick has been charged with investigating a curious piece of the older world: the grand Fountain Spring House of Waukesha, Wisconsin. Now past its heyday of resort tourism, its precipitous decline proves to be a denser mystery than the Chicagoan first anticipated. Wandering amidst whispers of folklore, threat, and mounting dread, Roger seeks to uncover the truth while preserving his reputation and very livelihood.
