Ghosts in the Asylum (The Black Spectre Origins, Book 1)

An ambitious reporter looking for her big break. A millionaire recluse looking for a cure. Can they survive a violent city ruled by the Mob?

Vicky Rose is a reporter stuck in the City Hall beat, but she’s desperate to cover crime. And fight back against the corruption that permeates the entire urban metropolis.

She sees her chance at a big break when the Mayor is murdered in his office.

Reclusive millionaire Brent Gregor has been trapped in a wheelchair since the night a home intruder killed his father and destroyed his family. Now, the only thing he cares about is being able to walk again. And regaining what he’s lost.

The mayor’s murder reeks of Mob violence, but all the evidence points to an innocent family man. Vicky knows the only hope of finding the truth rests in Gregor’s hands. But he’s unwilling to help until he discovers that in order to physically stand, he will have to take a stand for justice. And face head-on his greatest fears.

Ghosts in the Asylum is the first book in the Black Spectre Origins series, detailing the rise of the masked pulp hero The Black Spectre. If you like The Godfather, The Shadow, and The Dark Knight, then you’ll love Roger Alford’s gritty noir mystery that effortlessly combines new pulp with a classic 1930s style.
