From the best-selling author of the famous Mrs. Pollifax series comes another delightfully eccentric and sage female sleuth-the exotic Madame Karitska. Although she is a genuine countess, Marina Elena Provovnitchek Gaylord Von Domm Karitska is foremost a psychic. When one of her clients turns up dead, Madame Karitska makes the acquaintance of Detective-Lieutenant Pruden, and an uncanny partnership is born. Madame Karitska forms images with the psychic vibrations she picks up from personal objects. Her shocking visions are at odds with outward appearances and Detective Pruden finds it difficult to believe in them. But as Madame Karitska uses her amazing powers to help him solve case after dangerous case, even the skeptic becomes convinced. With The Clairvoyant Countess, Dorothy Gilman has used her own amazing powers to create a character who is both awe-inspiring and lovable. Ruth Ann Phimister's keen sense of timing and characterization let you too believe in the wonder that is Madame Karitska.

Professional reviews

"Madame Karitska is old-world nobility, down on her luck but not her dignity. She makes a precarious living using her second sight to help others, but never to enrich herself. By degrees, she becomes the ally and friend of a very skeptical (at first) police detective. This charming book has all the signs of a series-opener, a series that apparently never materialized. But we have this fine entertainment, which Ruth Ann Phimister reads with warmth and intelligence. If Gilman ever decides to give Mrs. Pollifax a well-earned vacation and bring back Countess Karitska, she will surely find an eager audience. And Phimister should do the audiobook. J.N.
