About the Book
From Mary Frances Fisher comes her debut novel, Paradox Forged in Blood, a compelling work of historical fiction based on true events and stories passed down from the author's family.
A murder on Millionaire’s Row. A killer's chilling words, "Shh. I know where you live.” A woman tormented by her guilt-ridden past.
A historical murder mystery, Paradox Forged in Blood is set in Cleveland, Ohio, during the late 1930s. Four decades after the murder of socialite Louis Sheridan, the cold case is resurrected with receipt of new evidence that transports detectives back to Nazi Germany. The only living witness, Ellen O’Malley, must confront a haunting secret and her complicit actions.
"Mary Frances Fisher took all these scenarios and put them together to create a murder mystery with a twist, a love story, and historical fiction. PARADOX FORGED IN BLOOD will make you mad, it will make you cry, and it will make you cheer for the good guys. The story of the lives of these people will warm your heart and leave you shocked. The twist was well played and you will not see it coming. I was completely caught up in this story and could not put it down. There is something for every reader in this book."
