Renaissance man and adventurer Chase Baker rarely visits home in upstate NY. But when his late dad's resting place is about to be dis-interred to make way for a new road, he volunteers to operate the backhoe. It's the least he can do for a father who was always there to help Chase, the young man. But what he doesn't expect is a job offer by the local Albany Police Department to look into a missing elderly couple. Maybe Chase wants nothing more than to get back to New York City to work on his latest novel, but when the detective in charge happens to mention the couple lived in the same house as Clara Harris and Union Major Henry Rathbone, the young couple who accompanied President Abraham Lincoln in the Presidential Box on the night of his assassination back in 1865, he puts his plans on hold. What makes the job impossible to ignore (aside from the badly needed payday) is that Clara Harris's dress which is rumored to be soaked with Lincoln's blood, is also said to be stored inside a secret vault somewhere in the house. While Chase decides to take on the job of looking for the old couple, he can't help but put his treasure hunting tools to work in searching for the dress first. Standing in his way, however, is not only an egocentric and murderous Civil War reenactment historian who believes he is the reincarnation of John Wilkes Booth, but more importantly, the dress itself. A dress that bears the blood of the Lincoln Curse. Filled with suspense, real history and alternative history, cliffhangers, action, and paranormal dream-like events, the newest novella-length episode in the best-selling, award-winning Chase Baker "pulp fiction" series is sure to thrill.

Great addition to the series
Another great addition to the series. As usual you are pulled into the story from the beginning. The whole series is fun, entertaining and humorous to listen to and this installment is no different. Very entertaining and enjoyable.
While this is book 4 in the series each story can be listened to as a standalone.
My only complaint about this installment is that it was so short. Chase just can't walk away from a good mystery. Although short, it moves at fast pace and is still packed full of adventure. Interesting twist on history.
Andrew B Wehrlen did a fantastic job of narration once again. Nice voice. Easy to listen to for long periods of time. Great character voices. Perfect tone and delivery. He brings the characters and the story to life. He's one of my top 5 go to narrators. I really enjoy listening to all of the stories he narrates.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.
What a woot!
Chase memories of his dad.
I love to see how Chase gets into and out of situations. Another hit in both story and narration. I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.
