March 11, 2016 - PRLog -- Muscatine residents Tom and Sharon Savage have long been aware of the dark horror that has haunted the town for nearly one hundred years, and now, with the release of their chilling new book, they dare to explore the mind of the deranged killer.

Most residents of the sleepy Iowa town of Muscatine know of the murder and suicide of two rival jewellers back in 1921, but few, if any, have ever fully understood the mind of the perpetrator, Fitch Swan. Now, after years of meticulous research, local authors Tom and Sharon Savage have written a remarkable insight into the mental deterioration of one man and how his increasing paranoia drove him to the horrendous events of Monday, August 3rd, 1921.

'The End of Time' has just been published by Mirador Publishing, a company who seems to be making a bit of a name for itself in launching the careers of new authors.

"We were thrilled to see this land on our desks," said Sarah Luddington, Mirador's Commissioning Editor. "It's a remarkable and quite disturbing character study of one man's descent into paranoia and the inevitable horror which ensued."

Sharon and Tom Savage were once owners of the bookstore which was located between the historic Swan and Volger stores, and with their qualifications in psychology, they are uniquely placed to bring the details of this tragedy to the world. Using the viewpoints of local residents and contemporary newspaper accounts, this is a book of great historical importance, not only to the area of Muscatine, but to anybody interested in how paranoia can take over an individual to the point of committing murder.

'The End of Time' is published by Mirador Publishing and is available through all good bookshops as both a paperback and eBook in all popular formats.

Sharon and Tom Savage can be contacted via their publisher.
