Smart, engaging, and captivating, this offering, set in 1920s San Francisco during Prohibition, is filled with snappy dialogue and enough fun twists to grab listeners from the minute the earphones go on. Aida Palmer can speak to the dead, and they speak right back. She can also get rid of them, which is a service bootlegger Winter Magnusson needs when he finds the dead from his past turning up almost daily. Amy Landon's low, husky voice for Winter and deliberate, determined voice for Aida are spot-on. An enjoyable romp through an interesting time in American history with a paranormal twist that is icing on the cake. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
