For a while. Until his lack of magic was discovered. And then it all came crashing down.
But when a student is murdered on campus behind unbreakable wards, Tane gets a second chance. Solving an impossible crime should be easy for the man who fooled the university's best mages for years. Except he's not counting on the head constable being an old flame who isn't so fond of him anymore. Or on Kadka, the half-crazy half-orc who insists she's his partner - whether he likes it or not.
Not to mention the masked mage who keeps trying to kill him. Now, Tane's survival depends on the one truth that has never failed him. The flaw in all magic that those who have it prefer to ignore: the mage.
Outsmart the mage, and you outsmart the spell. And outsmarting mages is what Tane does best.

Really fun story and well read to boot!
Would you consider the audio edition of The Flaw in All Magic to be better than the print version?
I haven't read the print version but based on the audio version I'd be willing to buy it.
What did you like best about this story?
I really enjoyed the setting. A fun combination of steam punk and fantasy with a healthy dollop of noir.
What about Travis Baldree’s performance did you like?
I really enjoyed Travis' narration. I like his use of voices and pacing. This is the third or fourth book of his that I've listened to and I can safely say that I will be looking for more in the future. I follow some narrators, because their performance can make or break an audio book. Like George Guidall, Travis Baldree has a voice that is pleasant and consistently improves a story sucking you into it rather than detracting from it.
Any additional comments?
I'm looking forward to listening to the audio book of the sequel as soon as it's available.

Fresh take on magic.
Magic plus detectives and a little MacGyver sprinkled on top.... It that doesn’t spark your interest throw in great character development and good humor and a good world foundation... Top it of with few cruse words and a great performance by Travis it is easy one of the best fantasy books this year...!
