World-renowned parapsychologist Dr. Mirage and her husband Hwen were madly, deeply, stuff-of-legends in love – until the day a tragic accident stole Hwen away. Now, Dr, Mirage will have to use every ounce of her training and talents in the mystic arts to do the one thing Hwen taught her never to do – journey across the realms of Deadside and bring her love back to the land of the living.[/quote]

[quote] There was a thing not too long ago because someone’s written a book about Operation: Paperclip, where post-World War II, the rocket scientists from soviet Russia and Germany [were recruited by] CIA and spies, who grab these guys and bring them back to the states, give them clean histories, so that they’ll help us build rockets and help us in our space race stuff. What I had proposed [for “Doctor Mirage”] was that there were these guys who were doing similar things with Occulting. Back in the day, they were gathering up the sort of occultists we assume exist when we watch something like “Raiders of the Lost Ark” – the Nazi cultists. There’s an imaginary program where we’re gathering up their guys to get them to do magic for us. I’ve got some guys left over from that project who have tripped over something that is very powerful and it has made them very powerful and they really want to hang on to it.

Shan is getting involved in their story by way of a member of the group who thinks he wants out. That’s probably the best way to say it without being all spoiler.[/quote]

Doctor Mirage talks to the dead…but the only spirit Shan Fong can’t find is that of her late husband, Hwen. Instead, America’s favorite semi-retired paranormal investigator is haunted and raw, using her gift to solve homicides and bring peace to the recently bereaved. But when a big-time occultist with a classified military past hires her for a special job, Shan discovers a lead that might close the greatest mystery she’s ever tackled – how to get Hwen back. Now, Doctor Mirage must enter the undiscovered country and cross all the realms of the underworld, if she has any hope of rescuing the man she loves…or be forever lost beyond the earthly plane.[/quote]

Dommage de le mettre en couleurs : en noir & blanc, c’est réellement magnifique.
