Publisher's Summary

While nursing some drinks after a terrible day at work, Tucker Candle spits out his rum and coke when a stranger across the bar turns water into wine. But did he? Or was it just an alcohol-induced trick of the light?
This stranger has a warning for Candle: skip your planned business trip tomorrow. If you go, I won't be able to protect you any longer.
With a clear head the next morning, Candle resumes his normal life, working for a company that's about to lay him off. That barroom huckster couldn't have been magical, or prophetic. He was just some washed-up weirdo with a few tricks.
But when Candle comes back from his trip to find his pregnant wife missing and a dead man's blood seeping into his bathroom floor, the washed-up weirdo's counsel doesn't seem so foreign now.
Cops, friends, family... Candle doesn't trust anyone. As he searches for his wife, people around him keep turning up murdered. If he can't find her and uncover the mystery driving the chaos, the stranger's words might come true, after all.

This can be summed up in one word, and that's excellent!! I pretty much loved everything about it, though thought it could of been longer. That's simply because I didn't want it to end.

Candle is the MC and was such an easy character to like. He was easy to relate to and had a way of making it impossible not to root for him. I loved how cynical he was when he first meets Kareem because I think all of us would be. It made him more believable.

The plot was fast paced and well thought out. It grabbed me from the start and didn't let go. It's a short enough listen but it's not short on anything else. The attention to detail and the author's style of writing made this amazing and totally captivated me. It's packed with suspense, action, intrigue and was at times emotionally intense. Poor Candle!!!!

In all this is a must read and a series that has the potential to be amazing. I need book 2!!!

William Coon was fantastic. His pacing and tones were perfect. He told the story flawlessly and is definitely a narrator I need to check out.
