What could be more mysterious and riveting than a magic trick? Only a locked room with a murder victim! Magician and amateur sleuth, Eli Marks is embroiled in a murder that has lots of suspects and more dead bodies. Not only does he have a murder mystery to solve but he also discovers a jealous streak that wreaks havoc on his career and love life. Hopefully, Marks can solve the murder before anyone else dies.
John Gaspard creates a classic mystery in which the solution is unique and exciting. Like magic, this story has an illusion that is masterfully crafted and executed.
A fun listen that keeps the audience guessing until the end. Great characters and plot that keep the audience engaged and on the edge of their chair. A unique combination of vintage detective mystery and cozy mystery. A delightful tale that keeps the audience engaged and riveted. Characters, as well as the plot, were well developed.
The narrator, Jim Cunningham, is excellent! His voice matches Eli Marks character perfectly with the correct amount of emotion and wonderment and mystery. He owns the book through his talent.
I highly recommend this book if you have a fondness for mystery, vintage movies, and magic. Part of a series, this book can be read as a stand alone too. Gaspar does a great job of capturing his audience with a unique character and mystery!

This book is equal parts mystery and humor, and I love everything about it. If you've been following the series, what sets this book apart is the dynamic with "Mr. Lime." He plays a bit of a "good guy" by giving the police a list of 4 people who he believes are responsible for the murder. As the book goes on it's hard to know who to trust, and who is telling the truth. It really takes you on a ride and isn't easy to figure out.
My favorite part is the very end when Eli brings all the suspects together in one room & lays out the crime step by step. It reminded me of "clue" or an old Agatha Christie novel. The performance art of acting out and describing the crime was such a treat. It kept me guessing until the very end!
If you love mystery, humor & a bit of classic magic then you'll love this book! The cast of characters are all so lovable. I was gifted this book and gave my honest review
