Publisher's Summary

Kansas, 1959. A travelling carnival appears overnight, intriguing the townsfolk with acts of inexplicable magic and illusion. But when a man's body is discovered beneath the carousel, FBI Special Agent Michael Travis is sent to investigate. But things are not what they seem, and with each new turn of the investigation, Travis' faith is challenged as he struggles to open his mind to a truth that defies comprehension.

What the Critics Say

"An atmospheric thriller with a gallery of fascinating characters." (Irish Independent)

"At a time when crime fiction has become so formulaic, it's a relief to find a book as left-field as this latest offering from RJ Ellory.... An intriguing, delightfully unpredictable novel." (Mail on Sunday)

    "Answer the questions!!"

    A Hungarian man is found murdered at a carnival; so the FBI send in their hot agent, eager to impress in his new senior role. Nobody at the carnival will answer the questions and tap dance around the truth the whole time, making you feel the agent's anger at the slow pace of the investigation.
