No matter how far you run, you can never really escape a haunted past. Darrell Henshaw—teacher, coach, and paranormal sensitive—learned this lesson the hard way.

With his job gone and few options, he heads for Cape May to coach a summer football camp. The resort town, with gorgeous beaches, rich history and famous Victorian mansions, might just be the getaway he needs. Only, no one told him Cape May is the most haunted seaport on the East Coast. One resident ghost, the Haunted Bride, stalks Darrell, begging for his help.

He can’t refuse. 

Joining forces with Cassie, a street-wise teen and another sensitive, he investigates the bride’s death and discovers her murder is connected to a far greater horror. But can Darrell and Cassie expose those behind the crimes before they end up being the killer’s next victims? 


Hey, like this? Why not share it with a buddy?

A persistent ghost, a reluctant hero, and a homeless teen—can they expose the truth before it’s too late?
Crimson at Cape May, by Randy Overbeck, a contemporary paranormal thriller, released by the Wild Rose Press.
While on a temporary job away from home, football coach Darrell Henshaw becomes the target by a persistent female ghost who imploring him to ‘save the girls’. Aided by a homeless teen, another sensitive, and his faithful significant other Erin, they explore local lore surrounding the death of a bride on her wedding day, then learn of the rash of missing teenage women. Runaways? Or something else? And . . . could they be related?
Our Review: do not let the 400+ pages of this book scare you off. Crimson at Cape May is a page turner from page one. Each character, carefully drawn and compelling in the many layers, draws the reader in and refuses to let go. The subtle tones of the hero’s OCD adds an extra touch. Well done. Well done!!
On a scale of 1-5, Crimson in Cape May deserves a 5.
