Murder Under the Boards: The Atlantic City Paranormal Mystery
Featuring Detective Bill Riggins
Volume III in the Bill Riggins Mystery Series.
Murder, ghosts, and the Atlantic City Boardwalk in 1957!
This noir style murder mystery ghost story is the third in a series of paranormal novels by author Christopher Pinto. Pinto's unique blend of mid-century noir and modern ghost story-telling has been acclaimed as some of the most original works to come along in years.
Detective Bill Riggins, a young but hardened New York Detective, finds himself on vacation in Atlantic City in 1957. Less than a year after his deadly encounters on Tiki Island in the Florida Keys, he's apprehensive about staying in a hotel, but overcomes his hesitation when he learns that his childhood friend, Johnny Falcon, is debuting on Steel Pier as the next American heartthrob. But Johnny's career is cut short when he falls victim to a crazed murderer, under the Atlantic City Boardwalk.
Riggins vows to catch (and punish) Johnny's killer, but it turns out to be a lot more complex than he ever imagined. His investigation becomes even more complicated as the ghost of a murdered girl makes contact with him, and her death, as well as dozens of others, are revealed to be intertwined with Johnny's murder.
"Murder Under The Boards" is a fast-paced, in-your-face paranormal mystery that pulls you deeper and deeper into a strange world of ghosts, murderers and protectors.
