Review THE PARANORMAL INVESTIGATIONS OF MR. CHARLES FORT by T. E. Scott
(The Charles Fort Mysteries Book 1)
Bumbling British civil servant Moreton, narrator of this series, is frequently stuck between a rock and a hard place as his orders to accompany intrepid investigator of "anomalous phenomena," Charles Fort, send him to odd places and odder people.. Moreton is not only a skeptic, but supremely feckless, and like Holmes' Dr. Watson, he is often wrong-footed. Unlike Holmes, Fort is also not too smooth, but he is indefatigable. Their combination makes for a fascinating "tour" of postwar Britain in 1919, and the milieu of mediums and spiritualists, skeptics and frauds, bureaucracy and crime.
