THE SOMNAMBULIST AND THE PSYCHIC THIEF (THE CURIOUS AFFAIR OF)

PrintE-mail Written by Leona Turford

Prepare yourself for a tale of mystery and intrigue, as we enter the dark and theatrical world of Victorian magic, but something is quite amiss, and it's far more sinister than any séance, as detectives Jesperson and Lane are about to find their most mysterious case yet.

The Somnambulist and the Psychic Thief takes us into a world of dark Victorian magick and the psychical led along the way by London's finest detective duo Jesperson and Lane.

A series of unexpected events leads our canny detectives to their newest, and most unusual case yet, but what could the case of a perilous somnambulist have to do with a string of sudden supernatural disappearances? Jesperson and Lane are about to find out, that is after they've helped a cat stuck up a tree and hypnotised a thief… just an ordinary day at the office for these crime-solving sleuths!

Something is certainly stirring in London's psychical community and our detective duo finds themselves caught in the middle of a most curious case, one that will certainly stir up far more than they had bargained for, as detective Lane finds her past catching up with her as they cross paths with the mysterious Miss X and her latest client.

But what do a missing cat, a somnambulist and the disappearance of several mediums have to do with our detectives’ latest mystery? They'll certainly get to the bottom of it as they embark on a thrilling case that unveils a rather sinister and dastardly plot that they couldn't have dreamt of.

A fitting tale of intrigue that makes for a thoroughly enjoyable read, author Lisa Tuttle has helped to perfectly recreate the mysterious world of Victorian magick in all its wonderment, making for a thrilling and entertaining story as we follow the detectives hot on the trail of their latest mystery, one that will certainly be a head turning read!
