“I'm in no mood for a guessing game,” Derwood Selby growled. “Spill it!” “They went to your place in Oceanside, counselor.” “What the hell for? They wouldn't find anything incriminating there. I keep my place clean,” Selby said.

When Killian O'Donnell immigrated to the US with his large Irish family, he ordered their manor house disassembled, brick-by-brick, moved, and reassembled on an ocean cliff near Dana Point, California. Now, years later, an aging Killian is being haunted by specters of soldiers, threatening him each night. Certain members of the family believe the old man has lost his mind and they want to put him away in an asylum. Of course, those relatives also want to control the family fortune. Killian's son, Ryan, believes something sinister is going on and he hires the MG&M Detective Agency to sort it out. Garth and the Mallorys arrive at the Irish Manor House to investigate and discover far more than a ghostly prank. Lost gold, a crooked soothsayer, perverse family members ... and murder. Praise for Rick Adelmann’s MG&M Detective Agency series: “Spellbinder! A great first book. I can’t wait for the next one. Great surprise ending!” – 5 stars online review “Sherwood Garth and James Mallory seem like an unlikely partnership in sleuthing, but their skills and experience provide a unique combination in the fine art of solving murders. Garth is reminiscent of our old friend, Sherlock Holmes, while Mallory, the retired cavalry officer, embodies the spirit of the old West. Rick Adelmann's debut novel takes you into a world where automobiles are replacing horse drawn buggies and the Jazz Age is coming into its own. Set against the rich backdrop of turn-of-the century Americana, The Greek Coins Affair is sure to please.” –Mysticmoods book review “What a fun read! I really enjoyed the premise and following the detectives as they solved the murders. I did not have this one figured out. I will definitely be following this series.”—SG, 5 stars “I've really gotten to know and like the three main characters. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery and fun time reading.” –NRW, 5 stars online “Sizzles with Jazz Age mystery and intrigue” –J Shaw, online review “Mallory and Garth are destined to become icons in the jazz age, historical mystery genre. They are private investigators with flair!” –Connie Shelton, USA Today bestselling author
