At the beginning of the novel we meet Miss Lane, the main character, while she leaves a work and begins another one as assistant to the detective Mr Jasper Jesperson.
They have problems in finding works, until their help is required – by lick and by their skill – by the sister of the owner of their apartment: her husband suffers of somnambulism and nobody is able to understand the reason of this unexpected behaviour.
In the same time in London some mediums disappear, while a new talent is becoming famous in the paranormal field.
The Somnambulist and the Psychic Thief is an adventurous crime story set in the peculiar world of mediums and paranormal, it’s a good read but it does not catch the reader curiosity, and the inquiry result is quite obvious.
Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
