An aging psychic and amateur sleuth leads a team of misfits through a
double murder mystery with oddball humour, suspense and lively banter.
1986, on the North East coast of England, a performing psychic has a visitation live on stage by a murder victim who just happens to be the drag queen hubby she married 48 years prior. When a second family member drops to the floor during the same performance, she turns detective and wades into the investigation with all the persistence of a disease and subtlety of a cannon ball. As the clues begin to stack up, DCI Seymour Witless is compelled to join the unofficial murder investigation team himself. Is he hoping this caravan-dwelling clairvoyant can save his career?
Although this not-so-cosy mystery adventure is a bit sweary in the dialogue, the ‘f’ word is used only once - and by a drunken person balancing at the top of a ladder. The humour however is more liberally scattered and perhaps suited to the mature reader appreciating a good British satire with a Geordie flair.
