Three Can Keep A Secret If Two of Them Are Dead.

"In 1998, conservationists discovered 1200 bones buried in Benjamin Franklin's Craven Street home. While most assumed these came from medical/anatomy studies...I wondered if a more sinister explanation was afoot."

-Marie Lestrange, Author

In the shadow of Benjamin Franklin's elite circles, Philadelphia 1739 is gripped by a series of grisly deaths, weaving a tale so dark it can only be whispered along the gaslit cobblestones. This masterful Gothic Thriller is a mesmerizing blend of historical nuance and chilling suspense, where love intertwines with deceit, and murder stains the street.

At the center of this mystery is Charlotte, a young woman grappling with the violent loss of her mother. As the city's cobblestones run crimson with blood, she finds herself ensnared in a nightmarish realm of depraved cults and dark magic, uncovering a labyrinth of secrets that could spell doom for both she and her new enigmatic lover- Ben.

With echoes of ancient incantations and the sinister plot of a Luciferian cult lurking in the shadows, she must navigate a world where the occult and her own haunted past are inextricably linked.

Crimson Cobblestones is a riveting journey through a world where the line between good and evil is blurred, and the past is never truly buried. With a narrative as intoxicating as the prose itself, Marie Lestrange crafts a tale that echoes the twisted history of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the intricate mystery of What the Devil Knows by C.S. Harris, and the atmospheric gothicism of Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow.

Crimson Cobblestones is not just a book-it's an experience, a chilling dance with darkness that will leave you breathless until its shocking finale.

"Murder and cults and sex and mystery and history, this book has it alllll. Deliciously dark."-Christy, Goodreads Review

"Easily the most twisted book I've ever read. Marie Lestrange has a gift for the macabre, and this intertwines American history and American horror as good as anything I've read. If you love horror, this is a book you need!"

-Joel Brigham, Author and Editor

"Checks all the boxes: historical figures, intrigue, suspense. A thrill ride that I couldn't put down! It kept me thinking long after I had finished the book." -Molly Carroll, Goodreads Review

"Lestrange's novel introduces a mysterious serial killer linked to a rich family--which, though not necessarily a new concept, is a premise that ultimately will shock readers given the plot's depth." --BookLife Prize Critic's Report
