When I started this mystery about a magician (think Houdini) turned FBI agent I thought: fast, fun read. It is, but I hadn’t expected it to also be clever, funny, and well written. Our heroine, the resourceful Jessica Blackwood, is interesting and likeable, and the magician angle is refreshingly different. Light on gore while rife with illusionist tricks, this intriguing mystery is great for anyone. I can’t wait for book two!
