THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT, by Simone St. James

London, 1925, where talented occult mistress Ellie Winter is left a note by her arch-rival Gloria Sutton, who has been murdered at one of Gloria's own seances. Reluctant to enter Sutton's high-visibility world, Ellie decides to honor her adversary's request to "find me", only to find herself dogged by handsome and relentless war veteran James Hawley, who despises charlatans and fakes, and lives to expose them. But Ellie is the real thing, and had given up contacting the dead after the brutal war which wiped out nearly a generation of English men, and now she will only find lost objects.

Soon, her links to the spirit world push her into following Gloria's trail, with terrifying results. The heated attraction between the damaged ex-soldier and Ellie is well done. It's a 4, an atmospheric, compelling read in a beautifully-portrayed era, where power and lineage protected the evil as well as the good. Sex 2.
