A Murder on Jane Street
By Cathy Cash Spellman
Adult Historical Suspense
Paperback & ebook, 419 Pages
May 22nd 2019 by The Wild Harp & Company, Inc.


A brutal murder.
A heinous secret
A deadly conspiracy.

The brutal murder of the little old lady next door puts FitzHugh Donovan on the case. A retired New York City Police Chief, he knows a cover-up when he sees one and his Irish Cop conscience can’t let that happen.

Now, Fitz, his family and his quirky band of Bleecker Street Irregulars are ensnared in the bizarre secret the woman died to protect.

Is this a 75-year-old cold case turned hot again, or an unspeakable crime-in-progress that could alter the course of the world?

Fitz doesn’t yet know how high the stakes are, that failure isn’t an option, and that the little old lady was so much more than she appeared. But he’s trying to keep everyone alive long enough to find out.

Characters you’ll care about, dark shocking secrets, and disturbing similarities to today’s political scene, will keep you turning pages to an ending you won’t see coming.    

"Family ties tighten and bonds of affection grow stronger as a family is trapped between ruthless forces struggling for the highest stakes: control of a world to be subjected to unimaginable evil. As.parents, children and loved ones risk all to protect one another, events accelerate towards a conclusion that is in doubt until the last page is turned. A terrific read!" ―Richard Gid Powers author of The Mystery of the Trinity

"A MURDER ON JANE STREET is a gripping summer thriller filled with history, adventure, and an intriguing mystery. Cathy Cash Spellman will keep readers on the edge of their seat" ―Charles Brokaw, New York Times Bestselling author of The Atlantis Code

Cathy paints a picture with the most radiant phrasing and colorful words! I’m a fan of her books and have read every one of them, always wishing that she’ll write more! That hope was answered with A MURDER ON JANE STREET. This compelling gem of a mystery is also a history, a conspiracy, and a modern-day morality tale rolled into one. Yes there is a murder, deadly secrets and treachery, but at its heart, it’s also about family, friendship and having the courage to do the right thing in the face of nearly insurmountable odds. This brilliant author has created yet another home run! Her narrative, coupled with an edge-of-your-seat contemporary mystery thriller, have characters that warmed my heart and an unexpected ending that I absolutely LOVED! ―Adria de Haume, author of Cross Purpose

"Do NOT read this book unless you are willing to be seduced by a dozen incredibly keen people without whom the world as we know it might cease to exist." ―K.T. Maclay author of Beginners Guide to Death and Dying in Oaxaca

Fill in the Blanks

1. The mysterious door that is just calling to me to open it is my favorite thing about the cover of A MURDER ON JANE STREET.

2. FitzHugh’s favorite thing about retirement is his rare bookstore, The Mysterious Library. The ability to seek out the rare stories of history.

3. Men he knew and worked with in the NYPD and access to the info he needs to solve crimes are the things FitzHugh misses about being a police chief.

4. The reason FitzHugh believes the murder of the little old lady next door is a cover-up is because of the threatening letter she showed him and the journals she left behind.

5. FitzHugh would describe his band of Bleecker Street Irregulars as brave and true-hearted, generous and smart in quite a variety of ways.

6. As I wrote A MURDER ON JANE STREET, the horrors and sufferings of the Holocaust and the aftermath of the war were hard to read about… the fact that the brave partisans were abandoned after the war by the governments they’d helped. The fact that the female spies who risked everything were abandoned by the Allies after the war and not even acknowledge as having helped win the war…they weren’t even offered jobs as office help when they asked for employment! Outrageous!! was one thing that challenged me.

7. My favorite thing about the story is the love among the characters, their willingness to do the right thing, the fact that they have each other’s best interests at heart.

8. Don’t edit yourself as you write. Blurt out your thoughts and get them on paper without stopping your momentum. You can always improve the words later but the energy must be captured immediately, is the one piece of advice I’d give to aspiring authors.

9. Right now the newest book (4th) in the Discovery of Witches series is the book waiting for me to read next.

10. I have a love/hate relationship with time. I need more of it. So many books are in my head, trying to get free…

11. Anything salty! Popcorn, pretzels, peanuts, you name it! is my go-to treat/snack when I’m craving something.

12. I’m looking forward to watching one of my books that has just been optioned for film and TV in the theaters.

13. I last binge watched Jane the Virgin, Suits and West Wing (for the 4th time).

14. If you got in my car right now, you’d hear Songland’s newest single playing through my speakers. I’m crazy about the show!

15. Autumn is my favorite time of the year.

16. Write, write, write is what I did this summer.

17. I like my pizza with pepperoni on top.

18. Kennebunkport, Maine is my favorite place to vacation.

19. One thing I can’t live without is my family.

20. I’m working on Lark’s Labyrinth Vol. 2 (tentatively called The Wild Hunt) next, to be released in early 2020.
