Publisher's Summary

Chas is a detective who doesn't stake out cheating husbands, track down missing persons, or match wits with femmes fatales. Instead of pounding the pavement, he taps a computer keyboard. He can get the goods on anyone, and it's all to make sure superstar Las Vegas mind reader Wallace the Amazing stays amazing. Thanks to Chas's steady stream of stealthy intel, Wallace's mental "magic" packs houses every night.
But when someone threatens to call the psychic showman's bluff, the sweet gig takes a sour - and sinister - turn. Who's the clean-cut couple gunning for Wallace with an arsenal of dirty tricks? Why does Wallace keep upping the ante instead of backing down? And just how much does Chas really know about his mysterious boss's life...or his own? The tangled truth - of blackmail, kidnapping, and false identities - quickly becomes the biggest case of his strange, secret career.

Ethics 101 over and over and over again

You know I like when an author has a message, but what I don't like is when said author thinks his readers are too stupid to pickup on the message so he or she feels motivated to beat you over the head with it for at least 10 of the 24 chapters in the book.
When the author was relating the actual story this book was interesting, entertaining, and enjoyable but when the author felt like he was either called to preach or teach I was ready to figuratively pitch everything in the fireplace.
About burning a credit...not again for me. If an author wants to preach or teach, don't list the book under mysteries

Disappointed with Jonathan Stone

I have enjoyed the author's other novels. The crazy plots were fun and surprising. Here, after a really fun start, the plot gets in the way. The twists and twists and twists go too far. The life described was simply too ridiculous. Unless the main character was in a coma for twenty years, he would have known that things could not have been as they seemed. And the MORAL OF STORY is repeated, in excruciating directness, OVER AND OVER AND OVER. I get it, Mr. Stone, I get it. Stop preaching! Subtlety is the secret of great magic acts...and of writing. There was nothing subtle about Two for The Show. That said, I liked his other novels so much that I will read his next one (but will approach with trepidation).
