Summary
Drawing on recently declassified documents, personal papers, and interviews, Shandler (a psychologist living in Massachusetts) relates the stranger-than-fiction case of a Scottish psychic who the British tried and convicted in 1944 under an ancient witchcraft law. Duncan's crime: her alleged ability to "channel" classified intelligence about British ship movements at séances! The book includes photos of the principals involved in the case.
