Imagine my surprise when I am reading an author who has sold million of copies of her various series when…she references by book Salem Secret Underground: The History of the Tunnels in the City! My book was used to create the background to her tale! Kind of cool.

Here she first mentions the tunnels in Salem based on my research…

Elias Hasket Derby Jr. conscripted a militia in response to Jefferson’s orders for the local militias to help collect his new custom duties. This militia would instead of collecting duties dig 3 miles of tunnels to smuggle through.

Then she mentions the tunnels under the old Naumkeag Trust/Eastern Bank building on Essex Street I used to give tours in…

Here are the pictures of that bank…

The author is Janet Evanovich, aided by Phoef Sutton in Wicked Charms which is set in Salem and Marblehead.

Also thanks to Carol J. Perry for given thanks in her book Tails, You Lose which she based her research on “Salem Secret Underground“! Also my family name “Dowgin” is in her latest book.

Evanovich even mentions the fictional shed with the tunnel below it from Carol’s Tails, You Lose.

It would be cool to find out who references Sub Rosa in the future. There is a lot of nitty gritty details to American history you never heard or thought of in it….Image so much coming from little old Salem.

Sub Rosa available on Amazon.com.

Buy your copy today. The Sequel to the hit book that everyone digs, Salem Secret Underground!

    Just watched an episode of the Librarians on TNT and they were citing source material also from “Salem Secret Underground” in Season 3 episode 1 “The Rise of Chaos”. In the episode they enter a basement and mention smugglers building tunnels in Boston to avoid Jefferson’s taxes. Which is the reason stated in “Salem Secret Underground” why the tunnels were extended and the ponds in the common was filled to hide the dirt. Cool huh…..
