    Highly recommend

    For those of you who have loved the Mrs. Pollifax series, Dorothy Gilman does not disappoint with Kaleidoscope and the Clairvoyant Countess. Even though there are several characters, one does not get lost in the story. It is very well written, so for Dorothy Gilman fans it is a "must read."

    A pleasure to read....

    Just 'everyone' may not enjoy this book. On the other hand, I love a good mystery - -throw in a little clairvoyance for good measure, and I had a great read. What a pleasure !

    Highly recommended

    I have loved Dorothy Gilmans books for years. If you like this one you will love her "Mrs Pollifax" series.

    CLASSY STORIES OF AN ARISTOCRATIC LADY

    Madam Karitska is an extremesly sensitive heroine, who is able to "read" people
    and thus helps them to solve problems in an interesting way.

    Her background is mysterious, and leaves the rerader to imagine a romantic
    and yet dangerous past life for this woman.

    Dorothy Gilman writes a fascinating story that captivates the reader from page one to the end.

    Engaging tale that reads like a series of vignettes

    Madame Marina Karitska lives in a shabby brownstone in a rundown neighborhood of Trafton. In her window lies the sign ¿Madame Karitska, Readings¿, which on first look will mean to solicit readings like any con artist, but on first meeting her client will know that Madame Karitska is legitimate as she contains psychic powers such as clairvoyance and psychometry. <P> Her readings are so good that even the Trafton police can be counted on as one of her clients when a case stumps them. Detective Luden Pruden is her biggest fan even using her in one week to help him catch two killers and a bank robber, and break up a cult. She also tries to help her walk-in and regular clients with their needs. <P> This is the first new Madame Karitska novel in over a quarter of a century and the lovable psychic remains as fresh as she did when she first appeared in a Dorothy Gilman novel. KALEIDOSCOPE reads like a series of vignettes with the heroine starring as the glue that keeps the book coherent. Ms. Gilman needs to realize fans like this reviewer are too old to wait the same time span for the next tale starring the delightful Madame Karitska. <P>Harriet Klausner
