Crime & Mystery
SynopsisIn 1885, the new craze is Spiritualism. All over fashionable London there are strange manifestations: dim lights, voices from the ether, flying oranges and disembodied hands that tweak ladies' dresses. But while the well-to-do Proberts and their friends investigate life beyond the veil in their Richmond house, other hands steal an erotic painting. It is the human mystery that brings Sergeant Cribb into the picture - plus an electrifying murder.
