Murder Mystery Pub Crawls!

Today will the first of several Murder at the Malden Bank pub crawls planned this summer in my hometown of Malden, Massachusetts. I am very grateful to the City of Malden for giving this first time novelist such a tremendous platform!

My novel, Abel Bodied: Murder at the Malden Bank is based on the December 15, 1863 crime where Frank Converse was the first murder victim during a bank robbery in American history. This occurred over two years before the James-Younger Gang, which may have included brothers Jesse and Frank on that day, robbed the Clay County Savings Association killing an innocent bystander as they left the town of Liberty, Missouri.

Actors from Incantrix Productions will be portraying the real people depicted in my novel while interacting with participants trying to solve the crime. I will be signing and selling my novel in the first and last stop of these pub crawls, Idle Hands Craft Ales. Tickets for these numerous pub crawls are selling fast and can be purchased for $10 at this link:

This video from the first pub crawl staged last year was shot and edited by Urban Media Arts. I have added some images related to the crime to this version.
