The first book in an exciting new Victorian murder mystery series featuring a young female detective
In 19th century Brighton, England spirit mediums are all the fashion especially Miss Eustace, a psychic who claims to produce apparitions of the dead, and oleaginous Mr. Bradley, a self-proclaimed spirit healer. Diminutive Mina Scarletti, a writer of horror stories, is sure that her widowed mother and friends are in the hands of cheats and extortionists so she enlists the help of Daniel Hamid, an Anglo-Indian doctor, her charming but disreputable brother, Richard, and Richard s mistress, Nellie, to expose the frauds. But the scheming criminals have spread their nets wide, and dramatic seances easily convince and captivate the vulnerable, including Daniel s disabled sister Eliza. When Mina s determined campaign backfires she only succeeds in adding to Miss Eustace s fame. With chaos reigning in the Scarletti house, Mina and Richard must turn to desperate methods to outwit the illusionists and reveal the truth."
