KIRKUS REVIEW

Irrepressible Gilda Joyce, Psychic Investigator, is at it again. This time it’s across the pond in Oxford, England. Gilda manages to wangle a position as a page-turner for her best friend, Wendy Choy, who has been selected to compete in an international piano competition. Wendy’s chilling nightmares combined with a variety of otherworldly happenings force Gilda to take a case once again. Donning her cat-eye sunglasses and her various outfits selected especially for her English holiday, Gilda finds herself combing the streets of London, looking for what is behind the genuine haunting. Gilda is determined to stay focused, but the cute English boys make it difficult. Allison’s endearingly odd heroine will once again capture readers’ affections while the mystery will keep the pages turning and the midnight oil burning. Offbeat and spine-chilling. (Fiction. 10-14)
