Romantic SuspenseLarge Print EditionBarbara Michaels thrillers are always a satisfying blend of earthly terrors and supernatural suppositions. Publishers WeeklyWith her silver-gilt curls and sea green eyes, Marianne Ransom was a spirited orphan surviving the streets of Victorian London. When she was brought to the opulent home of a wealthy Duchess, the ghostly presence of her father, a man renowned for his psychic powers, called to her from beyond. Marianne, too, had the gift of second sight. But as she soon learned, it wasnt always a gift. Sometimes it could be a perilous even deadly trap!

About the Author:

Elizabeth Peters (writing as Barbara Michaels) was born and brought up in Illinois and earned her Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago's famed Oriental Institute. Peters was named Grandmaster at the inaugural Anthony Awards in 1986, Grandmaster by the Mystery Writers of America at the Edgar® Awards in 1998, and given The Lifetime Achievement Award at Malice Domestic in 2003. She lives in an historic farmhouse in western Maryland.

From AudioFile:

Seances and signs from the dead are the themes of THE WIZARD'S DAUGHTER. Naïve heroine Marianne Ransom, now an orphan, is befriended by a wealthy duchess who believes Marianne is the daughter of her dead mystic, David Holmes, and that the girl can summon her "father." Norma West creates delicate, soft voices for the duchess and Marianne, whose dainty tones are lost to outside noises. Her male characters are exuberant and much louder, causing the listener to constantly change the volume. Nevertheless, West captures the naïveté and learned haughtiness of Marianne and maintains the tension of the story line as the duchess seeks the other world and the remaining characters play along. Romance also hides within the mores of this Victorian Gothic. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
