I was first introduced to M. Louisa Locke's Victorian San Francisco mysteries with a short story called [b:Dandy Detects|8573762|Dandy Detects (A Victorian San Francisco Mystery #1.5)|M. Louisa Locke|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51MUWnVxGKL._SL75_.jpg|13442591]. The cute tale introduced me to Annie Fuller and the guests at her boarding house, and intrigued me enough to pick up the other two books in the series."Uneasy Spirits" is the second book in the series, but it works just fine on its own. In this story, Annie Fuller investigates fraudulent mediums Simon and Arabella Hampton -- at risk to herself, of course.Locke's books are rich in historical detail and well-drawn characters. While I did figure out the "whodunnit" a few chapters before the reveal, I still thoroughly enjoyed the read.Highly recommended for those who like well-researched historical fiction and entertaining mysteries.
