Sally Lockhart is a financial consultant in London in 1878--a highly unconventional single girl in Victorian times. When a client loses her life savings because a shipping company collapses, Sally investigates. This is a quirky mystery involving a Scottish magician who has “sensed” a murder, a frightening new gun developed by a power-hungry Swede, and a sweet romance with Fred, a photographer/detective. Anton Lesser’s sense of character is peerless. He creates a slightly softer voice for Sally, a wonderful Scottish accent for the magician, and a range of class accents for the various members of Fred and Sally’s circle. Lesser delivers a spellbinding performance that intensifies the suspense and makes the villain more menacing. A.B.
