The link between the occult and the suffrage movement is a captivating example of how politics makes strange bedfellows, since two of the few venues where women's voices could be heard were churches and spiritualist meetings:  'We support women's rights under the guise of spiritual communication,' says Clara."Women in 1886 San Francisco are killing their husbands.  Attorney detective Clara Foltz uses an eighteen-year-old clairvoyant to track down the mysterious man using the powers of sexual magnetism and mesmerism to turn abused women into murderers.  This becomes a family mystery, as Clara's two oldest children get involved.Clara's assistant, AhToy, must also enlist the help of her evil uncle, Little Pete, because he also uses his paranormal abilities to control his harem of prostitutes in Chinatown.  Ah Toy learns how he does it and leads Clara and her family inside the dark, seamy side of how women are controlled for nefarious purposes.But the true confrontation comes when Clara joins together with her attorney friend, Laura de Force Gordon, to question witnesses who testified at the trial of Mrs. Rachel Wilson-Rafferty.  They also pay a visit to the wife of the man who began the first Rosicrucian group in America, Dr. Paschal Beverly Randolph.  They learn he taught sexual magnetism and the use of hashish and marijuana to help transfix his members in spiritual trances before they had sex with their partners. As the wealthy and abusive husbands are murdered by their wives all over the United States, Clara and her team begin to close in on a variety of suspects. The supernatural climax leads to a final confrontation and the solution to the mystery, inside the Winchester house in San Jose, but not without several twists in the action, which place Clara's daughter and son in immediate danger.This second, much-awaited mystery in the Portia of the Pacific series shows how women used Spiritualism in order to further their rights as women and wives.  In this case, however, women once again become victims of a sexist predator who will risk everything to achieve his misogynistic goals. Excellent method to teach employees and students about the consequences of sexism and psychological manipulation (study guide provided).
