I am a huge fan of E Michael Helm’s character, Mac McClellan and he is back in Deadly Spirits.

Check out this awesome cover!

Does it make you think of ghosts and hauntings?

Mac and Kate are back in Deadly Spirits and this time we will be hanging out with the Palmetto Paranormal Society investigating the haunted Navarro Hotel.

I haven’t met Mac in person…yet, but seeing as how he hangs around the Florida Panhandle, it may happen. His investigations lead to danger and mayhem. His personality and the fact that he lives in a trailer always makes me think of the Rockford Files and Magnum PI. He’s a bit old fashioned where it really matters, loyal and trustworthy. Even a bit of a prude…He even has a Dobie, my favorite breed of dog. So much is familiar to me, marinas, woods, fire towers, lighthouses, hauntings…

Action and mystery abound and Mac is on the case. E Michael Helms always includes some humor and I do love chuckles with my murder.

The downside to his job, he has a hard time collecting payment before his clients kick the bucket.

Mac has a hard time taking the whole ghost thing seriously, until…the scream. I am a skeptic too. As they walk around with their ghostly equipment and asking the spirits questions, I would be hard put not to crack up laughing.

I loved everything about Deadly Spirits by E Michael Helms. He has included a lot of extras besides the mystery…a critter to fall in love with, a dash of the psychotic and a pinch of the paranormal…a recipe for success.

I love Mac and this is my favorite adventure…so far. Michael has brought him a long way, making him more complex in his simplicity. I can hardly wait for more!

It’s New Year’s Eve 2016 and between football and the year end fireworks, I cannot quit reading.

When PI Mac McClellan’s girlfriend convinces him to join the Palmetto Paranormal Society, he becomes embroiled in a case of whooodunnit. The society president, while investigating an old hotel, is found dead at the foot of the stairwell, his neck broken. The man’s secretary and current squeeze stands horrified beside his body. Authorities rule the death an accident. Mac has doubts—no one heard the man tumbling down the stairs. Then the secretary dies in an apparent suicide. Two deaths in two paranormal investigations, and not a peep out of either victim. Mac suspects there’s more going on than a vengeful spirit.
Book 4 in the Mac McClellan Mystery series, which began with Deadly Catch.


E.Michael Helms

I was born in Georgia way back in the last century but grew up and lived most of my life on the Gulf Coast of Florida in Panama City (beautiful beaches, girls galore–ah, the memories!). In 2004 my wife and I moved to the Upstate region of South Carolina in the shadows of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, a land of stunning vistas and numerous waterfalls.
I’ve been traditionally published since 1990 when my Vietnam War memoir, The Proud Bastards, launched. TPB chronicles my time as a combat U.S. Marine in 1967-68. It’s still in print after all these years, currently with Simon & Schuster/Pocket. I’ve since written a few novels in different genres. I’m also working on a collection of “Dinger, PI” short stories that are being published on Motive Means Opportunity, a crime/mystery blog I share with two other writers of the same ilk. Currently I’m writing the Mac McClellan Mystery series which is set along the coast of the Florida Panhandle where I grew up.

  1. Pingback: Tag Team Review and Giveaway ~ Deadly Spirits | fuonlyknew

    • Please do, Stormi–I’m sure you’ll enjoy Mac, Kate, Henry, and the rest of the crew!
      You can find good used copies at Amazon for (usually) a penny, plus the dreaded shipping charge.
      Best of luck with the contest! 🙂

  2. Thank you for the wonderful review, Sherry!
    I left a detailed reply to Laura’s question at her blog regarding a true paranormal experience I shared with my two young grandsons, my daughter, and son-in-law. It “spooked” us to say the least!
    So, I suppose I’d like to come back as a friendly ghost/spirit, unless I go straight heavenward–or YIKES–down! Isn’t that the biggest “mystery” of all?
    Good luck to “all who enter here!” OOOOoooooo! 🙂

  5. No, I do not want to come back as a ghost. I do want to come back as a spirit to watch over and help my family. I know, basically the same thing, but a ghost sounds creepier to me!!! Coming back as a ghost sounds paranormalish and coming back as a spirit sounds like truth. Right????
    Anyway, great cover for a great sounding book. And I’m with you, Sherry. Observing ghost hunters makes me want to laugh! Great review! I love your tag team reviews.

    • I think I watch too much Supernatural and Charmed. I think of them being more bad than good. I wouldn’t mind having your ghost watch over ME too. 🙂 I know I would be very safe.

    • Hi Diane. So glad to introduce you. Good luck…maybe this will be the beginning of a happy relationship with E Michael. 🙂

      • Thanks Dianne! I really think you would enjoy Mac and Kate’s adventures. Mystery, murder, mayhem, a lovable Dobie, a touch of romance, and a dash of humor–what’s not to like! Good luck in the giveaway! 🙂

  6. Hehe..i am going to haunt everyone. No seriously, I will move on. I love the premise for this. You have added to my wishlist today my friend.

    • Sometimes I feel the same way. LOL Glad to hear this is one for the list. All the books will stand alone, though the series is well worth following. Good luck.

    • Thanks Kimberly! I’m certain you’ll enjoy the Mac mysteries, especially Deadly Spirits. Best of luck in the giveaway! 🙂

  7. I mean, it really depends. Ghosts have always fascinated me but I couldn’t imagine myself just wandering around in the land of the living after death. I would want to be at peace.

    • Ghosts have fascinated me too. I am a skeptic, but I would like to believe there is more. Happy reading.

  8. Hi Sherry. Do I want to come back as a ghost? No, I don’t think so. Ghosts always seem so lonely. They’re always trying to get someone to notice them and no one ever does. I am curious to try out my spiritual form though. And, you’re right about Michael’s book cover. It’s charming. I’m in Vancouver, Canada. Wendy at bluehavenpress.com

    • Hi W. It seems I am more adventurous…or do I just not want to let go…LOL Good luck and stay warm with a good book. 🙂

  9. I’m Canadian — I guess that makes me “international” which sounds very exotic. I wouldn’t want to come back as a ghost, but a kind spirit to watch over loved ones, yes.

    • I have lived in Michigan and New York, so some parts of Canada are very familiar to me. International does have a nice ring to it.

    • Archie, that’s rather “ghoulish” of you, don’t you think? 🙂
      Personally, I can think of lots of people to haunt if I were to return as a ghost/spirit. Some for fun, others, well. . . .

  10. Wow!! Excellent review!! Hmmmm, I’m not sure if I’d want to come back as a ghost. That’s a tough question! Okay if I am murdered than yes, I want to come back to haunt the killer lol. Otherwise, probably not so much. It sounds kind of depressing watching other people live and seeing what I’d be missing out on. Looking forward to checking out this book!
