Mitch Cullin's A Slight Trick of the Mind continues to garner praise, most recently from the Detroit Free Press, whose reviewer gets all Jungian on us ...
Halfway through "A Slight Trick of the Mind," a novel that elegantly reimagines Sherlock Holmes, I flipped the cover over, looking for the name "Carl Jung."
Not there. Mitch Cullin wrote this one, though you might wonder if he isn't channeling the famed psychoanalyst along with the famed detective.
Jung's ideas about the anima-animus -- don't Google that yet; I'll explain -- are a great filter through which to look at Cullin's story of the world's most-loved detective at the end of his fictional life.
