Publisher's Summary

Detective Sergeant Michael Brennan of the Wigan Borough Police has no time for tales of ghosts and the afterlife or of the dead contacting the living. So, when he finds himself investigating the case of a recently widowed young woman, Alice Goodway, who has suddenly developed 'the Gift' of mediumship and has received a threatening letter, he embarks on the inquiry with no small degree of scepticism. But just as Brennan and his colleague, Constable Jaggery, consider how to proceed with the case, something much more sinister takes place - a murder in Alice’s own home.

Slowly hypnotic

Not the first in this series that I’ve heard, and enjoyed enormously. This author knows how to do a Victorian mystery, doing it very well. Mind you, these are slow, meandering mysteries. But if you like period pieces of the Victorian kind and stories of common folk, topped up with a sound mystery element, this series is exceedingly entertaining. Again, the unraveling takes its own sweet time, so it will eventually depend upon your comfort zone with pacing. The author uses words effectively - building awfully vibrant images of all the characters, their respective backstories, emotions and burgeoning scenes. The series is evocative of Wigan in the 19th Century. And follows DS Brennan and sidekick as they meander through a maze of lives to somehow arrive at a solution. It’s in the telling - until the moment of “mystery solved” - that this series is so engrossing and entertaining. Gordon Griffin is as usual the bee’s knees. The perfect narrator for such period pieces.
