Local author D.M. Pulley, "The Dead Key" (2015) & "The Buried Book" (2016), will discuss her latest novel "The Unclaimed Victim."Library: Beachwood View Map
In the book, set in 1938, at the height of the Great Depression, a madman hunts his victims through the hobo jungles of Cleveland. Ethel Harding, a prostitute struggling to survive both the cold streets and the Torso Killer, takes refuge with a missionary sect – only to find that it’s righteous façade conceals the darkest of secrets.
Sixty years later, the police find the butchered body of Alfred Wiley in the woods. But before his daughter, Kris, can even identify the remains, things he never told her begin to surface one by one—a mysterious private eye who’d been tracking him, an eerie website devoted to the unsolved “Torso” murders, missing archives, stolen books, and an abandoned Bible factory harboring vagrants. The more she learns about her father’s obsession with the Torso Killer, the more Alfred’s death appears to be related, pulling Kris further into Cleveland’s hellish past.
Books will be available for purchase and signing through Macs Backs on Coventry.
