Wyandotte Chronicles, the Girl, by Wyandotte resident , takes readers through , and , just to name a few local hotspots featured in the book.
The book, written for adults, is “part murder mystery, part horror story and part paranormal adventure,” according to Wallace Hayden, Bacon Memorial District Library's historical librarian.
The book focuses on three students, according to its description on Amazon.com.
Sam, Jack and Ricky are finishing up their junior year in high school looking forward to the summer before they become seniors. Life is good. Life is easy. Until 3pm on a Saturday, when everything goes to hell. Wyandotte Chronicles: the girl, explores the mind of a psychopath, a supernatural world and its link to our own and a boy's budding friendship with an old man burdened with dementia and a past buried in rumor and local gossip. If you enjoy contemporary horror writers, this book was written for you.
Hayden praised Macintyre for keeping the reader interested throughout the book’s 278 pages.
“The author has a knack for depicting a scene vividly and accurately,” Hayden wrote on the library's blog. “Because the action unfolds through the eyes and minds of the characters, the reader doesn’t have an omniscient viewpoint, and, as with most books of suspense, is left to ponder, ‘What just happened here?’ Many answers don’t become clear until the end.”
The first two chapters of the book, which contains graphic violence and profanity, can be read online for free.
