Noir Gaslamp Era 1892 Coronado Thriller

Lethal Journey—1892 Noir Historical Thriller closely based on the true story of the Beautiful Stranger at the lavish resort Hotel del Coronado on Coronado Island, across the Bay from San Diego. A beautiful, elegant young woman signed in on Thanksgiving Day 1892. She remained a mystery ever after her mysterious and violent death five days later of a gunshot to the head, on the night of the 'Sea Storm of the Century.' Her demise was a national sensation and scandal in the Yellow Press of that era. In my nonfiction scholarly book Dead Move: Kate Morgan and the Haunting Mystery of Coronado, I analyze all the data and present a new solution to the 1892 true crime enigma and famous ghost legend at the Hotel del Coronado. From there, closely based on my true research plus elements of the legend, I wrote Lethal Journey as a noir historical gaslamp era novel in the tradition of The Prestige, The Illusionist, and classic Merchant Ivory films representing the era of E. M. Forster, A. Conan Doyle, Thomas Hardy, Stephen Crane, and other classic authors of that era.
