Summary

Eli's trip to London with his uncle Harry quickly turns homicidal when the older magician finds himself accused of murder. A second slaying does little to take the spotlight off Harry. Instead it's clear someone is knocking off Harry's elderly peers in bizarrely effective ways. But who?

The odd gets odder when the prime suspect appears to be a bitter performer with a grudge...who committed suicide over 30 years before. While Eli struggles to prove his uncle's innocence - and keep them both alive - he finds himself embroiled in a battle of his own: A favorite magic routine of his has been ripped off by another hugely popular magician.

What began as a whirlwind vacation to London with girlfriend Megan turns into a fatal and larcenous trip into the dark heart of magic within the city's oldest magic society, the Magic Circle.

No one does intriguing magic and page-turning humor like John Gaspard. Pick it up and see if you can be the first to figure out the trick!

Great addition to the series

Being a fan of both magic and mysteries I love this series. John Gaspard does a great job of bringing you into the world of a magician without revealing any tricks of the trade. He also has created characters that are enjoyable and draw you in. The mystery falls in the cozy mystery category and is a fun read.
This story finds Eli and uncle Harry in London. Uncle Harry is there to perform at the Magic Circle along with the Magnificent Magi, a group friends and contemporaries. The first night there uncle Harry is found on stage with another magician, who has been stabbed in the back. It is up to Eli and his uncles friends to discover the murder and clear Harry.

I love this series. Eli, Harry and Megan are in n London and once again murder finds them. This is a really good story with humor and suspense. The relationships between the characters is realistic and the story flows nicely. I recommend this book and the other books in this series.
