We gave it a B+

In 1926, federal agent Harris Stuyvesant pursues a serial bomber to England, where he’s forced to rely on traumatized war hero Bennett Grey’s psychic skill to unmask the culprit among many high-society suspects.

Grisliest Death
The villain rigs the Bible with an explosive, blowing up an innocent in a chapel.

Bottom Line
Laurie R. King’s meticulously plotted tale of an ordinary man with an extraordinary gift, Touchstone, is an Anglophile’s treat of sixth sense and sensibility. B+
