King Cts an open affair with a man who wants to bring down the government Stuyvesant finds himself dangerously seduced by one woman and even dangerously falling in love with another And as he sifts through secrets divulged and kept he uncovers the target of a horrifying conspiracy and wonders if he can trust his touchstone Grey to reveal the most dangerous player of all Building to an astounding climax on an ancient English estate Touchstone is both a harrowing thriller by a master of the genre and a thought provoking exploration of the forces that drive history and human destinie. This is a stand alone novel not related to either of her series It s 1926 and FBI agent Harris Stuyvesant has come to London in search of a bomber for help he s sent to Englishman Bennett Grey whose experiences in World War I have left him with an unearthly sensitivity to other people s thoughts and who has been hiding in Cornwall for years Almost against his will Grey agrees to help Stuyvesant by gaining him entry into an elite milieu which includes Lady Laura Hurleigh who is devoting her life to social reform charismatic politician Richard Bunsen and Grey s sister Sarah Lady Laura s best friendIt s a good book in many ways but it lacks focus it s not as tight as I think a suspense novel ought to be There are well developed complex characters but too many of them are POV characters six and I thought only four or five at most were necessary and King head hops occasionally There are lovely rich settings which are often over described The plot is intriguing but it takes forever to get going and occasionally bogs down in description and dialogue though the last hundred pages or so are uite tense I think Touchstone would have better if it had been shorter and tighter but I did enjoy it after finally getting absorbed in it due largely to King s richly developed characters

I usually like Laurie King s booksshe s on my author alert at the library but I took this out TWICE from the library and couldn t finish it either time The second time I didn t even want to pick it up there were just too many other interesting things to do or readThe first time I got about halfway through before I had to return the book The subject matter wasn t terribly interesting to me it takes place in the 1920s and involves espionage and one man who was left with psychic abilities from his injuries in WWI So perhaps this is a better book for someone who is interested in period pieces and warfare
