Daisy Gumm Majesty, spiritualist to people with more money than sense, is asked by a Salvation Army captain to teach a cooking class for immigrant German ladies. Since Daisy’s only culinary talent is burning water, she’s is sure the captain is nuts.

Then one of her students disappears and Daisy discovers that the help her students need has nothing to do with cooking—an anarchist’s scheme about to boil over.
“Daisy’s upbeat attitude gives her great appeal. Recommend to fans of Jacqueline Winspear’s Maisie Dobbs.” ~Booklist
