Fleecing the Flock: Confessions of a Spirit Medium by Parker

Fleecing the Flock: Confessions of a Spirit Medium is the entertaining, true story of Mr. Parker, an American who discovers the exploding séance scene in London. Along the way, he meets Thomson, a spiritualist medium of some renown. Unknown to Parker, Thomson is a fraud. We're along for a wild ride as Thomson slowly but surely reels in his victim. In a matter of months, Parker, formerly a fellow of good moral standing, is seduced into the fast-paced life of a spirit medium.

Along the way, you'll meet the various spirits that are conjured up by Thomson and company, as well as witness the various manifestations through the eyes of Parker. "Joey," one of Thompson's manufactured spirits, steals the show in several chapters with his levity and "down home" wit. Thomson's methods are revealed, too, which will be of interest to mentalists and bizarre performers who may want to add a dark séance to their repertoire.

The reader will find this ebook to be an entertaining behind the scenes look from the perspective of a pair of working mediums as they travel to London, Brussels, and other locales in the 1880s. One can't help but feel a vicarious thrill as one séance after another is performed, sometimes before the very eyes of police detectives and known skeptics who would like nothing better than to expose one more swindling medium. You're going to like this book.
