John Gaspard's professional magician (and unassuming detective), Eli Marks, is at it again solving crimes while spinning his own web of mystery for his audiences during his visit to The Magic Circle in London, England. Here is a quick overview:
Eli's trip to London with his uncle Harry quickly turns homicidal when the older magician finds himself accused of murder.
A second slaying does little to take the spotlight off Harry. Instead it's clear someone is knocking off Harry's elderly peers in bizarrely effective ways. But who?
The odd gets odder when the prime suspect appears to be a bitter performer with a grudge...who committed suicide over thirty years before.
While Eli struggles to prove his uncle's innocence—and keep them both alive—he finds himself embroiled in a battle of his own: a favorite magic routine of his has been ripped off by another hugely popular magician.
What began as a whirlwind vacation to London with girlfriend Megan turns into a fatal and larcenous trip into the dark heart of magic within the city's oldest magic society, The Magic Circle.
This is the fourth in the Eli Marks series and though it does feature a magician as the central character, it is written for the mystery lover, and not for the magician. John Gaspard is featured in this podcast because although it is related to magic and of interest to magicians, it is not another "how to" book of tricks.
