Those words come back to haunt Max when the dead girl turns out to be Ethel, one of his best assistants to date. He's soon at Edgar's side, hunting for Ethel's killer. Another death, another magic trick: Edgar and Max are sure the answer to the murders lies in their army days. And when Edgar receives a letter warning of another "trick" on the way - the Wolf Trap - he knows they're all in the killer's sights.

Because it was written by one of my favorite authors, I felt good about giving it a try. Now I'm sorry that I wasted a credit. It was fair at best. James Langton was as fine as he always is, but even he couldn't make it a good read and I was glad when it was over. Hopefully, she will go back to what she does well. For a really good mystery read, I prefer Peter Robinson, many of which are also read by Langton. There we find characters we care about as well as a really great story.

Marvelous and wonderful
I almost did not purchase this book due to the lukewarm reviews. This this is a GREAT book, in the finest Agatha Christie tradition. The story line is complex and the characters are intriguing. The narrator makes it easy to distinguish between them. The story line proceeds at a good clip you are not tempted to skip ahead. And as in all great literature there are themes of redemption and heroism from unlikely sources. There is no overt humor in the book but you will smile remembering the story. This is a book you will want to keep and reread by the sea. I was so impressed with this authors work I am buying a paperback for my guest room. And may buy more copies for gifts for my mystery loving friends.
