The Nuala Anne McGrail Mystery Series
by Andrew Greeley
Irish Whiskey (2/98)

Greeley is back for a third historical novel featuring
Nuala Anne McGrail, who uses her psychic power to
 investigate the death of Al Capone's rival.
Irish Lace
Nuala Anne McGrail uses her psychic abilities to help
solve mysteries.  On a quiet street  on the South Shore,
she is overwhelmed by the screaming of thousands of dying
men--Confederate soldiers held as prisoners of war.
Irish Gold
Trying to discover why his grandparents fled Ireland in 1922,
 American-born Dermot Coyne hires college student Nuala McGrail  to  translate his grandmother's diaries and travels to Dublin, where he is  warned to leave the past alone. .
A thrilling tale of love and danger, set against the Irish troubles of the  past and present from the New York Times bestselling master of suspense. "Irish Gold revolves around a hidden fortune in gold and the real-life, still-unsolved, question of who killed Free Irish leader Michael Collins in 1922."--Publishers Weekly. HC: Tor.
Irish Mist
 After launching a successful singing career, Nuala Anne agrees to participate in a charity benefit being staged in her native Ireland. When Nuala and Dermot arrive in Dublin, they are besieged by an avidly anti-American media and an inept gang of would-be kidnappers. After charming the media bulldogs and foiling the bungled abduction attempt, they turn their attention to solving a mystery rooted in Ireland's troubled past.  Endowed with the mystical ability to virtually relive former events,Nuala employs her psychic gift to uncover the identities of the men who murdered Kevin O'Higgins, heir-apparent to Michael Collins, in 1927.
