One thought on “Emperor Norton's Ghost

  1. Lisa

    Another fun read by Dianne Day only two to go in the series as it appear she stopped writing these in 2001 Would make a wonderful TV series.

  2. Janie`

    I love the Fremont Jones books My favorite was the one that dealt with the San Francisco Earthquake It brought it home to me, what it must have been like back then I love that these books take place in my two favorite U.S cities, San Francisco and Boston Dianne Day wrote with clarity and charm She has an active, passionate voice and imbued her character with an endearing, strong and independent personality I befriended Fremont and went with her on her adventures, peering over her shoulder, tryin [...]

  3. Goose

    Book four in the Fremont Jones series is well worth a read Some interesting characters, including Fremont s father, show up for a spirited read The only quibble I have is a lack of real suspects I do like the way Day writes Fremont as a woman who thinks herself forward thinking and modern, but many of her decisions and actions are those of a woman still stuck I hope she dresses up as a man in another book, that was a fun idea I liked it than book three Still would like mystery and less romance [...]

  4. Gloria Mccracken

    I really like this series, especially the protagonist, who is a woman in early 20th century San Francisco She insists on pursuing her own course, even when some of her friends and relations are not happy about it.

  5. Erin

    This series has been on something of a steady decline since the first book The first book was really good, with fun characters and an interesting setting The main character was a little naive, but in a way that suited her age, upbringing, and situation But I ve liked the subsequent books less and less And this one not very much at all Fremont went from a young woman out on her own with an adventurous frame of mind and a fresh outlook on life a rather judgmental, prideful busybody with petulant t [...]

    After Fremont and Michael return to San Francisco and start up a detective agency, Fremont s new friend Frances takes her to a seance The shocking murder of the medium leaves Fremont with a case that s sure to get her new agency some much wanted publicity, assuming that she survives to solve it.Another Fremont Jones book with another excuse to send Michael off somewhere for a large portion of the story At this point I m wondering if they ll ever end up really working together The ending was a bi [...]

  7. Lynne Tull

    It s official now I am a Freemont Jones fan She has finally matured from a spoiled immature girl to an adult She has proved herself to be capable of all the things it takes to be an investigator This case is her first one that is her own Case I find that Ms Day has written two mysteries in one series mystery is Freemont and her life The other is actually the mystery she or her partners associate are trying to solve As I leave this book her life is still a mystery The case is solved in due time a [...]

  8. Pat

    Perhaps I am at a disadvantage because I have not read the first two books in the series and so have not developed any sentimentality for the characters However, I was surprised to find the dialogue uninspired and often cliche The heroine s choice of friend did her no credit and brought her deductive prowess into question Both plot and character motivation seemed contrived and the denouement was gratuitously ghoulish It evoked no emotional response in the reader as no emotional commitment to the [...]

    Another adventure for Fremont Jones It is good to interact with her father again It was a surprise what he does come to share with his daughter I do wish I had some maps handy to view as I read these stories to get a feel for how San Francisco was laid out in the early 1900s The introduction of Edna as an addition to their office added some humor I do wonder if all subsequent stories in this series will end with Fremont getting into a possible fatal fix, and then getting herself out int he nick [...]

  10. Rosario

    Not much of a mystery here and, as happens in the previous books of this series, Fremont jumps from one thing to the other in a way that sometimes does not make sense Also, and I know that Michael is not the main character here, Fremont and michael s relationship is blurry, i.e could be developed imho But, overall, a nice cozy read The addition of Wish s mother as a character is, however, a nice touch and the character has potential much as the secretary in the TV series Remington Steele, for i [...]

    Alas, the once delightful Fremont Jones series goes downhill as it goes on Don t get me wrong I adore Fremont her complicated relationship w her mentor Michael is rather sweet I just did not care for the hocus pocus focus of this 4th installment I surely do miss the typewriting service business where detecting was incidental Will press on w the last 2 volumes.

  12. C.

    The fourth of the Fremont Jones books and I enjoyed it much than the previous installment There s just something about being back in San Francisco with Fremont and Michael I enjoyed the plot, which had me guessing until the end I do wish there had been with Wish and his little sideplot That would have made it fascinating.

  13. Belinda

    Another great book in the A Fremont Jones Mystery Emperor Norton s Ghost was a little gritty with the murder of two mediums Fremont is back with Michael, partners in a private investigation agency in San Francisco Great BOOK

  14. Dawn

    Completely disappointing turn for a promising series The charming, self reliant protagonist from the first book has devolved into a bratty termagant The crime solving elements are tangential to the erratic emotional swings of the main character.

  15. Carol

    Fremont Jones is back in San Francisco and has opened a detective agency with her partner The craze for spiritualism draws Fremont in when she attends a seance with a friend Then two mediums are found murdered Another good historical mystery set in the early 1900s.

  16. RachelAnne

    As much as I adore Emperor Norton and love the main characters in the book, I felt the mystery left much to be desired.
