I’m not normally a fan of historical fiction but Ms Dee and Ms Devon won me over with this well plotted story.  Set back in London of 1892, Oliver Marsh is a con man playing the Spiritualist to wealthy old women.  He justifies his scams by telling himself that he truly is doing a service by comforting them about their lost loved ones.  Robert Court is a cop assigned to bring Marsh to justice but sparks fly when the two men meet at a seance.  The story truly starts to move when Oliver has some real psychic flashes of a woman, Lily, being murdered.  Turns out that Lily was Robert’s cousin.  As the Oliver’s psychic flashes become more intense, so does the sexual attraction between Robert and Oliver.  The real killer must be caught but it will take complete trust between the psychic and the sleuth.  I thoroughly enjoyed the interplay that Ms Dee and Ms Devon wove between Oliver and Robert.  The two men were perfect foils for one another.  There is some BDSM which adds spice to the stuffy thinking of old London and shows that while discreet, gay men of the time heated up the sheets.  The mystery side of the story was intriguing and kept me interested right up until the surprising end.  I recommend this well written story to any mystery lover.
