Simeon Perkins

I enjoyed this one. It is a good read, with interesting characters and plot. A good “who done it”. The ending is a surprise, and moving. It will be of especial interest to anybody from Liverpool, Nova Scotia, where the story takes place. The author has a good knowledge of places and local customs, and puts it all together well.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: why I wrote ‘Perkins’ Ghost’ – details coming soon


A murder in the opening act

On opening night of the stage play, Perkins’ Ghost, a shocking murder had occurred, leaving many residents of the sleepy hollow of Liverpool, Nova Scotia to suspect that the murder might have been committed by the ghost of Simeon Perkins. With virtually no clues to follow, apart from the unexplained sightings of a Perkins look-alike, clairvoyants, fortune cookies, intuitions and a seemingly odd connection between the murder or murderer and the Kings Orange Rangers. Sergeant Hill wondered if the murderer would ever be found.  

The little town of Liverpool, Nova Scotia, once booming with industry, had settled into itself. Ancient trees lined the streets, dappling patterns on the Colonial and Victorian homes. It was a quiet place, where retirees settled and tourists went to sit alongside the Mersey River as it glided by. The little town was drenched in Canadian history and nothing newsworthy had ever happened – until a murder occurred.
