Publisher's Summary

Weeks after their leader, Dante Gallati, was found dead and threatening notes were sent, the Gallati Family Circus is now being relocated to Las Vegas for the time being. There, the police feel they will be safe. The group heads over there and think that they are going to be fine. All the while, they contemplate who would have hated Dante enough to kill him. The list is long and they learn that Dante had many problems in the past. Those problems may have led to his murder.
It doesn't take long before the threatening notes return. Their new friend, Triple Zero, has followed them to Vegas and is still sending strange notes. To make matters worse, Dante's strict mother, Jessica, shows up with plans to take control of all their finances and the circus. She wants Cirque Macabre to be a reality. This doesn't bode well with anyone but they go through to make Cirque Macabre come true. They want to do it for Dante. But what is really going on behind the curtains? Will they be able to find the killer in time?

Particularly Uninspiring

The fantastic nine are still reeling from Dante's death. They are not given the opportunity to mourn him. Instead, they are moved to Las Vegas and are left largely to their own devices and left pondering what happened to their wonderful Dante and who 000 is. They soon begin to learn, however, that their wonderful mentor once had major anger issues and might be subtly encouraging them to perform when they should be resting or getting over an injury. Who was Dante, really? And who is going to take over the circus?

This might have been good. But the dialogue is uninspired and relentlessly repetitive. No questions are answered. No revelations are made. This book makes no progress in the overall story. Unfortunately, the narration also detracts from the listen as it is not varied in any way. It is as if he is reading to a child and trying desperately to keep the child's attention. The tone and cadence are not in synch with the material at all.
