Duncan returns to 1926 Los Angeles with a delightful mystery that has humor, action and a fine cast of old and new characters. The story is fresh, and the interaction between the characters keep things moving at a fine pace.
Mercy Allcutt is happy with her job, even if it means putting up with her boss, P.I. Ernest Templeton. When Mercy attends a seance to help a friend expose some spiritualists as fakes, there's a murder. Can Mercy find the killer, especially when her mother, who vehemently disapproves of her working, unexpectedly comes for a visit and shows a surprising interest in the case? Soon Mercy and Mom are attending another seance, and her life may be in danger -- again. (FIVE STAR, Jul., 280 pp., $25.95)
