about

It's the 1920s and Daisy Gum Majesty is doing her part to support her family as a medium by holding séances and interpreting tarot cards for the rich and famous.

When the wealthy Mrs. Kincaid comes to Daisy to help solve her husband's disappearance, Detective Sam Rotondo isn't far behind.

Sam isn't fooled by Daisy's choice of "vocation" and blackmails her into spying on the Kincaids.

Then Daisy reads Sam's cards... and the tables turn.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong spirits It was a very interesting read. The speech was very true to the times. I felt it was a little slow in the beginning before getting to the mystery part but liked the book very much

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, fun book The early 1900's comes to life with the comparison of wealthy and "ordinary" life. The characters really come to life in this unusual dectective novel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tangent and ramblings. I was expecting a murder mystery, or maybe a police mystery. What I got was a flowery, turn of the century style novel about the class differences at the beginning of the 20th cenfury, after WW I. Too much infroduction, too much description, and a lot of journiez down "Tangent Roads."
