The first book in a new paranormal geezer-lit mystery series

Grieving widower Harold McCaff rey moves into the Mountain Splendor Retirement Home and finds himself living in the Back Wing with a group of strange residents — aging witches, vampires, werewolves and shapeshifters. He bonds with his fellow denizens, especially Bella, who has promise of becoming more than just a friend. Things are looking up for Harold — until he and Bella must use all their normal and extra-normal skills to solve two murders in this very unique retirement community.


“Mike Befeler has crafted a witty and fast-moving paranormal puzzle set in a retirement home that serves a dual population. The Front Wing houses so-called
normal geriatrics, and the Back Wing is home to aging witches, werewolves, and shape-shifters. Where else could one enjoy the image of being gummed on the neck by a toothless vampire with dementia? It’s a funread!”
—Edgar winner Rex Burns

“When Harold McCaffrey checks in at the Mountain Splendor Retirement Home, he gets much more than he bargained for in this charming paranormal tale: comedy, mystery, and things that go dead in the night.”
—Ellen Byerrum, author of the Crime of Fashion Mysteries
