It was the Roaring Twenties, the Jazz Age, the era of Model T Fords, bootleggers and G-men. Spiritualism was all the rage. Everyone wanted to talk to the dead. Except Dr. Alex Gabriel, who thought talking to the dead was ridiculous. Until he met Savannah Bishop, the country's most unique medium. Using Savannah's contacts with the World Beyond, Dr. Gabriel and Miss Bishop set out to solve a series of brutal murders that range from the glitz of Hollywood to the backwoods of Arkansas and eventually to the bohemian Left Bank of Paris and finally to pre-Nazi Berlin.

I never really thought of the roaring twenties in this type of mystery novel but it works so well. The story worked beautifully with the time period. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and their world. Jim Lester has a great writing style and it works so well with the twenties. I hope there is more in this series and from Mr. Lester.
"What was it about the woman? She struck Alex like all the Flappers—restless, vigorous and seductive, but there
was something else about Savannah Bishop. A sad intelligence, a mysterious ambiance, something. He had spent years debunking people who claimed to be mediums, but here he was on a Saturday morning in the Canterbury Tea Shoppe, disappointed he didn’t see Savannah."
