The O'Nelligan and Plunkett mystery series, set in the 1950s, celebrates the twists, turns, and traditions of the classic whodunit. In these lively tales, the sharp-witted, knightly Mr. O'Nelligan, a former Irish rebel, offers his deductive skills to young Lee Plunkett, a reluctant private eye still learning the ropes. Also in the mix is Lee's spunky fiancee Audrey and a slew of colorful, quirky suspects. The debut novel of the series--The Séance Society--features an impossible murder among an eccentric group of ghost seekers. The New York Times describes the mystery as "a methodically constructed narrative as neat as its locale." In The Haunting Ballad, the detectives plunge into the Bohemian folk music scene of Greenwich Village to track down a killer...while Audrey tries to resist the charms of a dashing troubadour.
