Now You See It Review
Private investigator David Randall was hired by a local socialite who believes her diamond bracelet was stolen. Before he could barely get started looking for the bracelet, he was contacted by Lucas Finch, a popular magician who was looking for a missing box that he and his brother Taft were planning to use for a special trick they were working on.
The brothers were excited because the box was once owned by the great magician Harry Houdini. As Randall searched for the box, he discovered Taft�s body stuffed in a truck at The Magic Club where the twins had been performing.
With his psychic friend Camden at his side, Randall found himself surrounded by a number of magicians and wannabe's who might have wanted Taft dead, including his brother Lucas. As the investigation continued, Randall was surprised to learn the world of magic was such a cut throat business.
While he continued to struggle because of the death of his young daughter, David Randall was also finally able to solve the case of the missing diamond bracelet in a most unexpected manner.
Now You See It by Jane Tesh is a sturdy mystery that introduces twists and turns with glee. She is also the author of three Madeline Maclin Mysteries, another popular series. This third Grace Street Mystery is a welcome addition to Stolen Hearts and Mixed Signals, a series filled with numerous characters quirky enough that most of us would probably want head the other way if we met them on the street or in a club where they were performing.
The author has created several recurring characters that are a pleasure to revisit if only to find out how they are doing. David Randall is still struggling with the death of his daughter and his girlfriend Kary decides she wants to try out as a magician's assistant.
Cam is struggling because he is losing his voice and his girlfriend is going through her own trials. They are not your average couples, but they do have their day to day relationship struggles giving the novel a true to life feel.
Check this book out if you want an interesting who-dun-it and see if you can figure it out.
