Delia's Shadow
by Jamie Lee Moyer
A Tor Book, 2013, $24.99, 336pp
Release Date: September 17, 2013
Part ghost story, part murder mystery, this period romance set in San Francisco is captivating and compelling.

After the devastating earthquake of 1906, San Francisco is full of ghosts. Delia Martin, sensitive enough to the spirit world to see them and hear their cries of anguish, would normally avoid any place that had been so recently struck by deadly disaster, but her best friend Sadie is about to be married. And so Delia is conjured home by the call of friendship, but she is not returning alone. The silent woman in old-fashioned attire who has been haunting her for months follows her like a shadow cast by a dark sun, bringing nightmare memories to Delia’s sleep.

As Delia helps Sadie plan for her wedding, Sadie’s fiancé Jack and his best friend Gabe, two of San Francisco ’s finest, are assigned to solve a series of murders in the city. Gabe especially is troubled by the patterns in the deaths, for they are all too familiar. Gabe’s father had been a policeman before him, and had pursued a criminal with an identical modus operandi. Finding a serial killer and keeping Sadie and Delia safe become part of the same mission for Jack and Gabe; and as fog, memories, and spirits swirl around her, Delia finds herself falling in love.

I’ve met Jamie Lee at conventions off and on for years, and it is a pleasure to see her name gracing the cover of this beautifully printed book. Tor does good work. With a costumer’s knowledge of period attire, Jamie provides cozy intervals in this atmospheric mystery; and while this is not steampunk fiction, it has many of the best qualities of that genre. ~~ Chris R.
