In this intriguing mystery, a London-based journalist, Sally Lockhart, is asked to review a new book about mediums. Lockhart is skeptical, but decides to read the book regardless. Soon after, she begins receiving strange phone calls that seem to be coming from the book's author, medium Cora Carmody. Lockhart becomes increasingly concerned, but can't seem to find any evidence to support her fears. Eventually, she realizes that Carmody is the one behind the calls, and she's been murdering mediums to keep their secrets hidden. With the help of her editor, Lockhart tracks down Carmody and puts an end to her spree.; 8vo; FSA.
