My first read of this author. Will be looking out for more. This tense thriller reads very well and kept my interest to the very end. If you are a fan of magic and illusion, perhaps you will be surprised to see how the genres can be used with evil intent. This fast paced book deserves to be a best seller. And I learned much about magic tricks.
