Editorial Reviews

Review

“A really enjoyable read, and if you like Victoriana, crime fiction and anything written by this dynamic duo, then you’ll like this with great big brass knobs on.”
—Speak Its Name on The Psychic and the Sleuth

 

“An erotic M/M and a great thriller besides. The sights, sounds, and smells of London are there in full force, and it all comes together in a gripping—and chilling—story of love and death, illicit passion and murder.”
—Toniverse Reviews on The Psychic and the Sleuth

 

“It’s an exciting and robust tale with mouth-watering intrigue, political machinations, witty banter and some sizzlingly sensuous sex scenes. I want to take away these ladies’ pens until they promise they write nothing else but gay historicals.”
—Reviews by Jessewave on The Gentleman and the Rogue

Book Description

Inspector Robert Court was never satisfied with the verdict in his cousin’s murder, but his efforts to find the truth have annoyed the superintendent. Now he’s stuck tracking down a medium who’s fleecing the wives of the elite.
Oliver Marsh notices the attractive, sneering non-believer at his séance, right before he has a full-blown psychic episode in which he witnesses the murder.
There’s only one way Court can find out if Marsh is a real psychic, or a killer: spend as much time with him as possible. And hope he solves the mystery before the real killer strikes again.

An erotic M/M and a great thriller besides. It's gratifying to read something about Victorian English crimes that doesn't involved Jack the Ripper. The story of the false medium who suddenly discovers he's really tapping into the Afterlife has been done to death but Devon and Dee give it a couple of twists by making Marsh realize that he's been using his gift all along and just not aware of it. Court is a good counterpoint to the psychic who's almost his opposite in personality, granite-like and self-contained, while Marsh is dramatic and sensitive to a fault. Each man has a full background, and concentrating not only on their love for each other but equally on the story at hand. Even the villain gets his share of a back story.

The sights, sounds, and smells of London are there in full force, and it all comes together in a gripping--and chilling--story of love and death, illicit passion and murder.

I've been reading these authors' individual work for years, enjoying great stories along the way. However, when they join forces and co-write a book, it's perfection. They create a sensuous dance with a magical rhythm for the protagonists. In the Psychic and the Sleuth, the dance is like a tango between two men, who are so different from one another, as the many doubts entangling their irresistible attraction.

While investigating a fake psychic case, Robert Court is forced to experience again the last minutes in the life of his cousin Lily, for whose murder he has never found closure. Always thinking that the wrong person was executed for it. The medium under his scrutiny reveals details never released to the press. Robert's distrust increases, but soon his interest in the psychic is more than professional.

Oliver Marsh makes a successful living as an intermediary between the living and the dead, shamelessly taking advantage of the rich by comforting them about their deceased relatives' afterlife. Suddenly, while in a trance, he is catapulted into the dreadful last minutes of a girl's life, viciously cut short by a ruthless murderer. And now, Oliver can't take her off his mind, in the same disturbing, but more pleasant ways, he can't either take her cousin Robert off his life.

Robert and Oliver collaborate to solve Lily's murder and to prevent her murderer from killing again.

If I keep giving details I'll spoil the rest of the story for you, but I want to tell you that, I particularly enjoyed how well the authors portray Robert and Oliver, being a real pleasure to witness their journey toward one another. I also liked a lot the scenes when Oliver recalls the murder by channeling Lily's spirit. Those are truly touching and spine-chilling.

Gosh!

Creme de la Creme Pick

Mystery, intrigue, sexual tension and chemistry, what more do you need? In my opinion The Psychic and the Sleuth has it all. This book is set in 1892 and pairs a logical, by the book detective (Robert Court) and a fly by the seat of his pants, intuitive, spiritualist (Oliver Marsh).

This story is full of wonderful secondary and tertiary characters. I absolutely fell in love with Robert and Oliver, and the real scene stealer is Jock, but you'll have to read the book to find out about him! I highly recommend this book to all who like M/M and even if you have never read any strictly M/M before, but are willing to give it a try, this would be a great starter book. Both the authors of this book are new to me, but I am definitely putting them on my "will read more" list.

This is very well written, and has very good grammar usage. BUT, the description states light BDSM, but I think it was much more than light, and it really is too much for my taste, and I simply did not enjoy the rest of the story because of that. In retrospect, knowing my feelings, I should not have purchased any work that has any BDSM in the product description, and will avoid any such in the future. If such is of interest to you, you will likely enjoy the book.

4-1/2 stars
Robert and Oliver are such a great pair. I don't know that I would classify this as a "enemies to lovers" sub-genre but they most definitely have the equal parts fighting and attraction down pat. The author's warning says it best "Despite “Descriptions of Murderous Acts” perpetrated by an unhinged killer, resist the temptation to cover your eyes—you’ll miss the good parts!" There are so many good parts mixed throughout the story, and I'm not just talking about "yummy" times, there is humor, sparring, fear, and of course murder. By fear, I'm not just referring to the mystery, I'm also referring to Oliver's realization that he actually does have some psychic ability and Robert's same realization and having to admit that being psychic isn't an automatic conman at work. This is the first time I've read either author or one of their collaborations but it definitely won't be the last.

I like this book, though it is not my favourite book in the 'The... and the...' series. I think you should know beforehand that the sexual relationship in this book is dom/sub and gets a bit rough here and there. There was one scene that was a bit off-putting to me, though I generally like a bit of dom/sub. If you're not into that, you may do better to skip this one.

That being said, it is a good story, with interesting and generally sympathetic characters. I have no regret buying it and will read it again.
