A historical murder mystery. . . a widow (framed?) put under house arrest. . . political scandal. . . a looming Civil War. . . sexual intrigue. . .

Does that sound like your cup of tea? If so, 31 Bond Street may be just what you're looking for (and it's on sale today!). Based on a real-life murder—and the frenzied media coverage that followed—Ellen Horan's debut novel seeks to answer the question: Who killed Dr. Harvey Burdell?

The trailer features foreboding music and details of the case:

Also don't miss this behind-the-book essay for BookPage, in which Horan describes her chance encounter with the case—and how the "process of writing unraveled slowly, much like an archeological dig."

Will you read 31 Bond Street? Seen any good book trailers today?
