May mercy be upon the man who finds himself the enemy of a vengeful medium…

1873. At an abandoned château on the outskirts of Paris, a dark séance is about to take place, led by acclaimed spiritualist Vaudeline D’Allaire. Known worldwide for her talent in conjuring the spirits of murder victims to ascertain the identities of the people who killed them, she is highly sought after by widows and investigators alike.

Lenna Wickes has come to Paris to find answers about her sister’s death, but to do so, she must embrace the unknown and overcome her own logic-driven bias against the occult. When Vaudeline is beckoned to England to solve a high-profile murder, Lenna accompanies her as an understudy. But as the women team up with the powerful men of London’s exclusive Séance Society to solve the mystery, they begin to suspect that they are not merely out to solve a crime, but perhaps entangled in one themselves…

My thoughts:

I absolutely loved Sarah Penner’s first novel, The Lost Apothecary. (You can read my review here.) So my reaction when I found out she has a new book coming out looked something like this:

I cannot wait. Historical fiction? A crime? The supernatural? Yes, please!

I’d love to be on the blog tour for this one, but if not, I’ll definitely be buying it myself. March seems like so long to wait!!!
