A mystery based on a Scientific American challenge to prove or not the validity of the psychics An interesting read jazzed up with a little suggestion of sexFrom Publishers WeeklySet in the Roaring 20s and steeped in period detail this energetic debut is narrated by one Martin Finch a psychology graduate student at Harvard Possessed of a wry sense of humor a practical intelligence and an appropriately skeptical interest in the supernatural Finch is tapped by the department chairman Dr William McLaughlin to help him judge a Scientific American contest that promises 5000 to anyone with conclusive evidence of psychic phenomena Before Finch and McLaughlin arrive in Manhattan for their first encounter with the paranormal Gangemi has given the reader a thumbnail history of the Spiritualist movement which had its heyday in the years after World War I and was championed by the likes of Arthur Conan Doyle History notwithstanding the narrative moves at a brisk pace Finch and McLaughlin uickly expose two mediums as frauds before evaluating the formidable talents of Mina Crawley the wife of a Philadelphia doctor Finch travels to Philly as McLaughlin s agent to meet the lovely and charming seeress and stays for several weeks in the Crawley household as he wrestles with his central conflict his affection for Mina versus his mandate to determine whether she s a fraud The novel turns into a slightly bawdy thriller and the narrative vigor rarely flags as Finch pursues strange paths in the City of Brotherly Love Gangemi is an extremely adept writer though freuent wisecracks and references to popular songs and consumer products of the 1920s wear thin His plot too is a bit weak but this is an undeniably clever concept and an enjoyable readCopyright Reed Business Information a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved

Inamorata Summary Ä 9 Read & download Õ E-book, or Kindle E-pub à Joseph Gangemi Review Inamorata With the paranormal is confronted by the inevitable ascendance of the scientific method With everyone from Houdini to Arthur Conan Doyle weighing in on the existence of parapsychological phenomena the media is as fixated on the sensational debate as scientists and would be psychics Indeed in 1922 Scientific American offers five thousand dollars for evidence of conclusive psychic manifestations Inspired by this real life event Inamorata follows Martin Finch a twenty. My gosh I loved reading this To be honest I didn t know what to expect from it as it had been sitting on my shelf for years without being given a second glance I m sorry I overlooked you for so long Inamorata Just because you were the randomly selected third book in a 3 for 10 deal doesn t mean you aren t worthy of attention In fact I don t even remember what the other two books wereThe 1920s have always seemed like an extremely cool decade to me at least through the lens of American fiction Inamorata carries that cool vibe throughout as it takes us from Boston to New York City to Philadelphia It follows the misadventures of Martin Finch a logical young man whose job is to debunk the claims of wannabe psychics who are in no short supply with spiritualism at its height of popularity What may seem like amazing supernatural feats to most are simply parlour tricks waiting to be exposed by his deductive reasoning Finch most assuredly doesn t believe in psychics at least not until he starts to fall in love with a very convincing oneI love the uick paced wit of this book It s filled with entertaining characters constant allusions to the sights and aesthetics of the time and plenty of prohibition era shenanigans Also the main character gets punched in the face I don t know why that s a thing I m into but it is I really regret not giving this book a try sooner It was pretty great
