I have read all of L.M. (Lee) Jackson's books, fiction as well as nonfiction. His mysteries never fail to cast an authentic spell, reproducing Victorian London in all its grandeur and ugliness. The Mesmerist's Apprentice is the second in Jackson's newest series. Sarah Tanner, the central character, is a most attractive heroine. Clever and independent, she has little in the way of resources other than her wits, but she is a survivor and her wits prove to be enough. In this book, her inquisitive nature and loyalty to friends in need take her into the shadowy world of 19th century spiritualism and the occult. For those who enjoy a lively read, I highly recommend!

I actually had the pleasure of reading this novel while I was in London! This is a well-written, gripping novel about Victorian London. Loaded with details which create a backdrop of the darker side of Victorian London, this well-plotted novel follows Sarah Tanner, beautiful tea shop owner and former mistress of recently wed Arthur DeSalle, an elite member of society. The two become embroiled in a complex battle with murderous thugs and a crafty and unscrupulous doctor who promises relief from pain and disease through mesmerism.

This fast-paced complex novel should be pure joy for anyone who enjoys period mysteries.
