The Elusive Voice

By

The Elusive Voice is a shadowy and richly satisfying traditional mystery set in late 19th century Boston. Richly set against the backdrop of the height of the Spiritualist movement, its cast of deeply drawn characters utterly involves the reader in a series of ‘séance’ murders. It is the mission of investigative reporter Michael Merrick to seek the truth, which he does in the realistic manner of the period.

Not once does Adamson transgress beyond the era with jarring errors, and she maintains her reader’s intelligence by aptly keeping us monumentally interested in Merrick’s progress page by page up until the final climax
