Publisher's Summary

From the acclaimed author of The Haunting of Maddy Clare comes another spellbinding ghost story set in 1920s England.

London, 1925. Glamorous medium Gloria Sutter made her fortune helping the bereaved contact loved ones killed during the Great War. Now she's been murdered at one of her own séances, after leaving a final message requesting the help of her former friend and sole rival, Ellie Winter.

Ellie doesn't contact the dead - at least not anymore. She specializes in miraculously finding lost items. Still, she can't refuse the final request of the only other true psychic she has known. Now Ellie must delve into Gloria's secrets and plunge back into the world of hucksters, lowlifes, and fakes. Worse, she cannot shake the attentions of handsome James Hawley, a damaged war veteran who has dedicated himself to debunking psychics.

As Ellie and James uncover the sinister mysteries of Gloria's life and death, Ellie is tormented by nightmarish visions that herald the grisly murders of those in Gloria's circle. And as Ellie's uneasy partnership with James turns dangerously intimate, an insidious evil force begins to undermine their quest for clues, a force determined to bury the truth - and whoever seeks to expose it.

    "Another Great 1920's Ghost Story!"

    Simone St. James really knows how to write great ghost stories. This story takes place in 1920's London soon after the events that take place in An Inquiry into Love and Death. This time Scotland Yard inspector Drew Merriken is investigating the death of a young psychic. Here's hoping there are several more Inspector Merriken novels to come!

    "Another great work from St. James!"

    Once again Simone St. James has delivered an enchanting tale that whisks it's reader (listener) on a fantastic and emotional journey. The Narration is perfect. So easy to get lost in her voice. I highly recommend! Beware... You'll find yourself missing these characters and wanting more when the journey is complete.

    "Excellent"

    Great, well developed plot and characters. Written in a good English mystery style, set in the 1920s. The narrator is one of the best, very easy to listen to.

    Story
    "A 20s Murder Mystery"

    I was super excited about this book because it has everything I love: 20s, ghosts, and a good ole-fashioned murder mystery!

    The narrator was fantastic but the story started to get stale for me. I thought about halfway through that they were using very tedious details and really trying to drag the story out! The plot itself was pretty good. A medium gets killed and her ex-friend, who is also a medium, is hired on by the victim's brother to find out who murdered her? The setting is 1920s London which definitely intrigued me. I just felt bogged down in certain parts of the book. The killer was definitely a twist I didn't see coming!

    All in all, it was an okay read!

    Story
    "Serviceable Mystery, But Nothing Special"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Only if they were particularly into the genre.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Simone St. James? Why or why not?

    Possibly. The writing was solid enough, even if the storytelling fell a bit flat for me.


    Which character – as performed by Mary Jane Wells – was your favorite?

    Pickwick, the dog. He was rather adorable and it's a shame he didn't get a bit more 'screen' time.


    Any additional comments?

    It's not bad per se, it's just not great either. The pacing and structure was fine, but the characters never really fleshed out fully to me. Still probably worth the credit if you particularly like stories about psychics or the 1920s.

    "Great reader"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure


    What could Simone St. James have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Better...much better story


    What does Mary Jane Wells bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Drama. Reader was best part of book which started out strong ...story line midway through just didn't work.


    What character would you cut from The Other Side of Midnight?

    The lover...the killer...story just didn't hold together


    Any additional comments?

    Disappointment
