As a resident of Frederick, MD, author P. J. Allen uses this setting and incorporates its history, institutions, and local sites to tell a fictional story in “Dead Reckoning in Frederick.”

When Kayla Dunn, photographer for the Dulany Paranormal Team, discovers a murdered girl in Carroll Creek, no one believes that there is any connection between the victim and the team’s challenging assignment from the Frederick County Landmarks Foundation. As paranormal activities continue to increase in Frederick’s heritage homes and buildings, it becomes apparent that the spirits have a message.

“As with my previous books, a social issue drives the story,” said Allen. “In ‘Dead Reckoning in Frederick,’ I wrote the story to expose how the rich and powerful can prey on those most vulnerable and that sometimes there are unimaginable forces that can help hold those who exploit accountable.”

“Dead Reckoning in Frederick” is a paranormal fiction novel centering on a murder mystery and historical intrigue in Frederick, MD.
