Local author Carl Vonderau’s love of reading stems from childhood. Forbidden from watching television after dinner, he instead engrossed himself with books. His reading habits eventually led him to ghost stories that would scare the pants off of most other elementary school kids. Carl’s debut novel, Murderabilia, draws from his family’s Christian Science background and his time as a banker, but that’s where the similarities end and the chills begin. “[Carl] is a terrific writer who has written a terrific book." (Karin Slaughter, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Daughter) William MacNary has worked hard to build a normal life: a home, a family, and a job as a private banker. Try as he might, however, he will never forget how his father murdered, dismembered, and photographed thirteen women. When a colleague of his wife is found murdered exactly like his father’s victims, all signs point to William. Only one person can shed light on who the copycat be, the only man William never wants to see again; his father.
