The Story

Can Tim Hall determine what are real, and what are The Decoys?

Tim Hall is a washed up American spy residing in Baltimore Maryland. He feels that his life is just about over until he is saved by Mary Ann, the bartender at the Blue Goose Bar and Grill. So his problems are solved right? No, they are just beginning and you will findThe Adults in the Room is a roller coaster ride that will keep you guessing. Nothing is as it seems!


I started reading and couldn’t put it down. Grabbed me in the first few pages which is what I look for in a good read. Things happen quickly with several unanticipated twists. Plot is well thought through and keeps you guessing til the end. Hope to see more from Mechling.

An audio book of the Adults in the Room is scheduled to be released
