Gripping mystery of a psychopathic illusionist.

With just about every Deaver mystery there are always are a multitude of twists. But what makes this mystery so enthralling is his knowledge of illusions, illusionists, magicians and murder. He kept me on the edge of my seat and guessing all along who the killer was and what his motives were. That's what I look for in a mystery novel.

George Guidall is excellent as a narrator, making each character distinct and believable.

Intellectual approach to solving murder mysteries

Jeffrey Deaver fits perfectly into my category of "fill in" listening, novels I listen to when nothing better or new is available. I expect 4 star novels in this category while being aware that 5 star winners are very, very unlikely and 3 star so-so novels are very possible. Vanished Man is the 5th novel in the soon to be 13 novel NYC detective Lincoln Rhyme series. The novels read like spin offs of the old Ironside TV series starring Raymond Burr. This one involves an illusionist. George Guidall narrates very well.
