Review

Lamont has conjured a fascinating story (SUNDAY TIMES)

[A] sprightly account (GUARDIAN)

Lamont, with equal amounts of erudition and charm, unpicks the extraordinary life of a man who, if he was a fraud, was the best fraud in the business... Along the way Lamont provides sardonic accounts of seances in this superb, ingenious biography. (SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY)

THE FIRST PSYCHIC must surely rank as the definitive work on the extraordinary life of Daniel Douglas Home... This book is peppered with the glitterati of the period. (SCOTS MAGAZINE)
