"A quirky and lovely spin through sweltering Nairobi, this story will have readers cheering.... The use of Victorian English is probably the best example ever, outside actual Victorian texts. Beatrice is a spunky, determined woman, but at the same time wholly a model of Victorian females. Every character is fleshed out. Fans of historicals and paranormal will love every minute of this story!" (InD'tale Magazine)
"A novel rich in imagination, detail, and surprises requires a narrator who can embrace every element of the story--Alison Larkin is that narrator. She is spot-on in her portrayal of Beatrice Knight, a member of the Society for Paranormals, and her spectacular ghost-hunting adventures in colonial Nigeria with her dead husband in tow. Though it may take a moment for listeners to acclimate to Larkin's thoroughly posh tones, her dedication pays off, and Bee's dry humor and quick wit shine through, making listeners feel as if they're chatting with an old friend. Her accents are consistent, and her sympathetic portrayal of each member of the diverse and zany cast rounds out a stellar series opener." (AudioFile)
