Description

"An atmospheric and evocative whodunnit steeped in suspense, mystery, and illusion." —Nita Prose, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Maid
THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
From the author of the sensational bestseller The Lost Apothecary comes a spellbinding tale about two daring women who hunt for truth and justice in the perilous art of conjuring the dead.
1873. At an abandoned château on the outskirts of Paris, a dark séance is about to take place, led by acclaimed spiritualist Vaudeline D'Allaire. Known worldwide for her talent in conjuring the spirits of murder victims to ascertain the identities of the people who killed them, she is highly sought after by widows and investigators alike.
Lenna Wickes has come to Paris to find answers about her sister's death, but to do so, she must embrace the unknown and overcome her own logic-driven bias against the occult. When Vaudeline is beckoned to England to solve a high-profile murder, Lenna accompanies her as an understudy. With shared determination, the women find companionship that perhaps borders on something more. And as they team up with the powerful men of London's exclusive Séance Society to solve the mystery, they begin to suspect that they are not merely out to solve a crime, but perhaps entangled in one themselves...
Written with intoxicating suspense and sultry prose, The London Séance Society is an entrancing tale that blurs the lines between truth and illusion, and reveals the grave risks women will take to avenge the ones they love.
"Penner brings history to vivid life in this atmospheric and evocative whodunnit." —Nita Prose, author of The Maid

        Starred review from June 1, 2023

        Despite her skepticism and penchant for logic, Lenna Wickes travels to Paris to study under esteemed spiritualist Vaudeline D'Allaire after her sister is murdered in London. When the president of the renowned gentleman's club known as the London S�ance Society is also murdered, Vaudeline is called upon by society member Mr. Morley to conduct a s�ance back in London. The women are swept up in a dangerous mystery full of supernatural intrigue, trickery, and illusion, where only the dead can provide the answers they seek. Narration performances are astounding and perfectly suited for the dual narrative of Lenna and Mr. Morley. Lenna and Vaudeline are played with delightfully distinct British and French accents by Lauren Irwin, while the stuffy British Mr. Morley is impeccably portrayed by Alex Wyndham. The narration brings to life the era-specific atmosphere and vocalizes the characters' varying emotions, ranging from extreme tension and anger to softer, more sensual moments. VERDICT Penner (The Lost Apothecary) proves herself again to be a writer to watch. Recommend to fans of historical fiction, especially Victorian-era stories, who enjoy elements of the supernatural. Irwin's and Wyndham's theatrical performances make this a must-listen.--Meghan Bouffard

      • content: Sarah Penner's Victorian mystery is nifty on its own, but strong narrations by Lauren Irwin and Alex Wyndham make it even better on audio. The narrators weave several plot strands seamlessly. Mr. Morley, vice president of London's S�ance Society, contacts a world-famous spiritualist, Vaudeline D'Allaire, asking her to hold a s�ance to unmask the killer in a high-profile murder. Reluctantly assisting her is Lenna, whose sister, Evie, was Vaudeline's former apprentice until Evie was murdered. Wyndham's voice for Morley is deep, dark, and portentous, while Irwin portrays Lenna as energetic and hopeful. Irwin makes Lenna's sudden and surprised discovery of her own psychic abilities completely believable. The narrators capture the story's deception, secrets, ghosts, and ghastly murders, making this rich gothic tale an audio must-listen. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine
