Excerpt #2BA MURDER ON JANE STREET
by Cathy Cash Spellman
Finn had slipped soundlessly out from behind the sliding shoe racks that housed enough shoes for a family of centipedes. The intruder had been on his way to the master suite when Brace’s moans from the staircase had turned him around and slowed him down. She heard a muffled exchange. It sounded as if Brace was badly hurt and pleading, but the guy was berating him for not being able to stand up and walk. Then he seemed to be dragging him painfully up the stairs again.
“Where are the others?” he kept shouting and Brace didn’t seem to be making any sense in response. Then there was the sound of something being hit hard, a grunt of real pain and finally silence.
Barefoot, she scampered into the master, locked the door behind her just to gain time, knowing the old lock wouldn’t hold for long. She tried the window.
She muffled the sound of the window sliding up with a pillow and peered at the size of the ledge outside. Holy shit! It was maybe a foot deep, tops, and she got nauseous just thinking about heights. The freezing air hit her like a force field, but shocked her into movement. There really weren’t any choices. Whoever had engineered this break-in was good at his job. She wouldn’t have long to escape and she needed to get help now. She knew it in every bone.
Finn grabbed the lap robe from the window seat and knotted it around her shoulders like Superman’s cape. The wind was frigid as the North Pole and her coat was miles away downstairs. Why the hell hadn’t she grabbed a sweater or jacket, to say nothing of sneakers, from the closet? Fuck! No time for regrets. The afghan-thingy knotted around her neck was all there was, so she gingerly climbed out onto the ledge and tried very hard not to look down and not to throw up.

This book was received as an ARC from the publisher and Author, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own
A Murder on Jane Street by Cathy Cash Spellman is a suspenseful provocative, and
engaging read. A recreated historical conspiracy novel that begins with the murder of a 95-year-old woman in New York City, with secrets and ties to Nazi Germany.
The brutal murder of his next-door neighbor pulls retired New York City Police Chief FitzHugh Donovan into an world wind investigation.
While surveying the property, one of the CSI technicians finds an addressed envelope to ex police Fitz in some bushes between his and his neighbor, Mrs.Wallenberg’s properties. Inside, Fitz finds three books and a letter that said, “You will know what to do!”
Mrs. Wallenberg’s has left a journal and some documents which shed light on a secret dating back to the Nazis and World War II. Fitz is helped by his daughters, granddaughter and computer whizzes who band together as the Bleecher St Irregulars. The documents are scribblings and symbols which, when interpreted, reveal great advances in science that the Nazis were on the verge of launching but defeat thwarted them. But the greatest secret of all is one buried in Mrs. Wallenberg’s journal which describes a plot that transitions the Third Reich to a Fourth Reich.
As the irregulars began to survey evidence they realize that the real terror lies with the carriers of the Hitler’s Nazi torch already. They have already amassed great power and are on the verge of seizing much more. They now wrestle with a decision in what to do with the dangerous knowledge.
Cathy Cash Spellman, has written an incredibly creative edge of your seat thrill ride of a book. The tension and excitement rises right up to the satisfying ending.
I highly recommend this riveting and intensely entertaining mystery.
