The Original Crime: Remembrance Publisher's Summary

The serial novel begins....

From Joseph Pittman comes this serialized tale of secrets, murder, and the search for the ultimate truth. Combining his appreciation for small-town life, as seen in his Linden Corners series, with his love of mystery, as evidenced by his Todd Gleason crime novels, The Original Crime is a tour de force of suspense fiction.

Part One: Remembrance

Matthew Clark has returned to the upstate New York village of Eckert's Landing for a family crisis, only to be dragged down a dark path of murder and suspicion. The body of an unknown woman has turned up on the abandoned railroad tracks, and local police chief Rick Kelly doesn't know where to begin his investigation. The only clue is the fact that the method of murder mirrors that of a killer who haunted the village 20 years ago. But the Engraver, as he was dubbed, is long gone, or so it is believed. What secret has come home to Eckert's Landing, threatening to dredge up yesterday's awful past?

Don't miss the entire novel, published in three installments: Remembrance, Retribution, and Redemption.

Digging deep into lives of the families of the original victims, Matt stumbles upon an even bigger secret, one that threatens to not just expose a killer but possibly destroy his own life. As a storm rages and the Eckert River begins to flood the town, Matt comes face to face with a brutal killer - whose identity shocks him to his very core.
