Summary

There's no question it was murder. But who killed whom?

What begins as a typical corporate event for magician Eli Marks turns into a twisted mystery when he is called to the site of a recent murder/suicide.

Confronted by the details of the grisly crime scene, Eli must sort through the post-mortem clues - and the bickering of the officials as well as a poorly-timed allergy attack - to determine just who murdered whom.

Clever short crime

It was a good locked room type misery. I know the main characters so it probably helped my enjoyment. ( worth taking a look at main series if you liked it as similar style but compacted) I have read quite a lot of crime but had not come across quite this idea as a solution so it was pleasingly novel for me. Not sure if everything was completely plausible but was short and sweet.

Short Story? Better than no story...

Would you consider the audio edition of The Invisible Assistant to be better than the print version?

I wouldn't know - I have never read a print version of and Eli Marks Story

What did you like best about this story?

I like that you felt like an insider to the characters because the exposition was minimal. Probably those familiar with the series would enjoy this more than a newcomer for that reason.

Have you listened to any of Jim Cunningham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to every Eli Marks available, and Jim Cunningham is PERFECT for these stories. Just a great character actor behind the mic.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Nothing extreme, although I was sad that it ended so quickly, as SHORT stories tend to do.

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to the next audiobook release. The last one is taking too LONG!
