What Critics are Saying
"Deadly Spirits is a haunting mystery with an ingenious plot, vivid setting and memorable characters, chief among them the incomparable Mac McClellan, who is easily one of my favorite PIs out there. This latest installment will satisfy fans of the series while sending newcomers scrambling to catch up. If you like Robert Crais and Harlan Coben, you'll surely dig Deadly Spirits. I know I did. Highly recommended."
--Max Everhart, SHAMUS AWARD Finalist, Split to Splinters--An Eli Sharpe Mystery
“Helms scores again! Deadly Spirits seamlessly pulls PI Mac McClellan, and the reader, between the physical and the supernatural planes. The tough, retired Marine must overcome his skepticism to solve two present-day murders, and bring closure to a third from the past. This is a softer, more human, Mac than we’ve met before. One more willing to suspend his beliefs for sacrifices only the heart can make. You won’t put this book down until the last page."
--Kait Carson, author of The Hayden Kent Mystery Series, and The Catherine Swope Mysteries
"In Deadly Spirits, Helms blends the grit of old time Private Investigators with the laid back Southern Charm of Florida’s Panhandle and pours it all into every word, thought and action that makes Mac, well, MAC! Filled with wry humor, and characters that all smell pretty fishy to me, follow along as Mac does what he does best, noses around like a hound on the hunt for a hidden bone!"
