The Ivy League Chronicles
The Ivy League Chronicles - Book 1
He’d given up solving murders, but old habits—much like skeletons on a beach—don’t always stay buried.
By 1923, Scotland Yard’s legendary Richard Wikki was done chasing cold cases: he’d traded murder scenes for a classroom at Yale and peaceful house by the sea. But when an aspiring journalist brings him a mysterious amulet she snatched from a crime-scene, her scoop of a lifetime drags Wikki into a conspiracy he can’t escape.
Wikki—unwilling to turn the would-be reporter in for stealing evidence, but knowing it may be a vital clue in the case—agrees to assist her in unraveling the murder. Together they descend into a world of occult and secrecy, racing against shadowy forces who will stop at nothing to preserve the amulet’s secrets. Uncertain who to trust, their best chance of survival is to unmask the secret society whose machinations reach to the very roots of American power.

The Ivy League Chronicles - Book 2
In 1924, he thought he wanted to retire, but once a detective, always a detective.
After his last taste of solving a murder, Richard Wikki wants to get back in the field. Fortunately (or unfortunately), there’s been another suspicious death, and this time, it’s one of Scott Judson’s Wolf’s Head secret society brothers at Yale University.
The police rule it accidental alcohol poisoning, but Richard’s gut tells him otherwise. When four more of Scott’s friends turn up dead at the same party, leaving only one survivor, Richard knows it’s no coincidence. There’s something suspicious going on, and he will leave no stone unturned until he uncovers the truth.
Meanwhile, Maize has sweet-talked her way into a secret ghostwriting job on Yale’s all-male newspaper. While selling ads for the Yale Daily News, she catches the attention of Tommy Mulhaney. She doesn’t realize that her charming new nemesis is the nephew and successor to the notorious crime lord of New Haven’s Irish Mob, Seth Mulhaney.
While Maize heads deeper into unknown territory, Richard’s case takes a turn. Nothing is what it seems.
