Ninety-Year-Olds Tackle Murder and Mayhem in New Mystery Series A simmering brew of thefts, murders, and exploitation bubbles beneath the luxurious lifestyle at Whisperwood Retirement Village in The 90s Club & the Hidden Staircase. The mystery is the first in a series featuring Nancy Dickenson and Whisperwood's 90s Club. They pile up clues like tricks in a bridge game to uncover the culprits-and almost lose their lives. "You can read every day about people who are 90 plus, even 100, and they're still active, alert, and working," says the author, Eileen Haavik McIntire. "My protagonist, Nancy Dickenson, is drawn from a 91-year-old woman I saw swimming laps at a pool party." The author's previous novel, The Shadow of the Rock, is historical fiction published in 2011. Midwest Book Review called it "a riveting story of time and humanity, highly recommended." The 90s Club & the Hidden Staircase is well-researched and, except for the evil underfoot, accurately presents life in an upscale retirement community while spoofing stereotypes about the elderly. The characters play off each other well and the dialogue is often humorous. The plot turns upon subtle possibilities for exploiting the elderly, who are often the targets of scam artists. The villains in this novel, however, walk, play, and talk with their victims. The 90s Club & the Hidden Staircase will be available this spring in both print and e-book editions at Amazon.com and other bookstores. ISBN 978-0-9834049-3-4. Paperback price: $17.95.

From the Author:

Although the inspiration for this series came from watching a slim, attractive woman, 91 years old, swimming laps in a pool, I also draw on the experiences of a grandmotherly woman who was a private detective. She looked harmless and people wanted to help her out, often inviting her in for coffee and spilling the secrets of the neighborhood to her.

About the Author:
