The Unraveling: Book One of the Jeremiah and Susanne Series
Max Justus, author

Adult; Mystery/Thriller; (Market)

The Unraveling is a good romp to solve a centuries-old mystery, but with the original cast of characters! When ghosts are present right here and right now, who says the dead aren't interesting or well informed? The story begins as elderly Jeremiah's older sister, Susanne, bullies him into recounting the first of their many youthful adventures, a peculiar mess that started during a family visit to their grandparents in Britain. Jeremiah and Susanne accidentally discover much of the clan's secret family history. Their freakish discovery? Most of their ancestors, dating back to 1745, currently reside in Nana and Papa's attic, with the purpose of overturning the wrongful conviction and execution of Great-Uncle Edgar in 1745. Inspired by Edgar's parents, the Earl Mortimer and the Countess Leila, Jeremiah and Susanne tackle the ancient mystery to help their disgraced and significantly depressed ghostly relative. Edgar, his beloved Jemima, and the whole ghostly extended family need closure. Young Jeremiah is oddly suited to the task. Socially a mild misfit because of subtherapeutic autism, his disability has gifted Jeremiah with a phenomenal memory and provided him the ability to process and retain details that few others even see. He is paired with his mind-reading nine-greats-granny Leila, who is overly inquisitive and sometimes hilariously distracted. During the investigation, Jeremiah shockingly discovers that some of his relatives were indeed killers. A new murder must be stopped: Jeremiah's own! With the help of other quick-thinking ancestors, Jeremiah must avoid becoming another dead occupant of Papa's attic. To stay alive, Jeremiah will quickly learn what kindness and fair play can do against evil.
