Headstrong, sarcastic, and fiercely intelligent, magician-turned-FBI agent Jessica Blackwood knows better than anyone how easily people can be fooled. So she's not happy about being sent to Louisiana on what appears to be a wild goose chase hinging on an elderly man's recollection of an event that occurred decades ago. Especially because her boss, FBI consultant Dr. Jeffrey Ailes, has paired her up with young, earnest rookie agent Nadine. After risking her life to help the Bureau catch the serial killer of the century, this is her reward? As she and Nadine clash about how to handle their strange assignment, Jessica must accept that, despite her best efforts, she's having trouble moving beyond her past as the rising star in a dysfunctional family of magicians. Raised in a world dedicated to deception, her refusal to accept things at face value is one of her strengths--but is it also a weakness that could cause her undoing? In this compelling short story from Andrew Mayne, master illusionist and the author of Angel Killer, we see a new side to Jessica Blackwood--and get an electrifying sneak peak at her next adventure, Name of the Devil.… (mais)

Review of eBook

Magician Jessica Blackwood, now an FBI agent, finds little to appreciate in an investigation in Louisiana that bears all the hallmarks of a wild goose chase. For some fifty years, Richmond Edgar has been writing to the FBI, telling them about his experience with a strange flying object. But, dismissed as a crackpot, no one has followed up on this report.

Until now. Jessica and Nadine Cox listen to Edgar’s tale, hire a boat, and the search commences. What will they find? And how will it relate to what Edgar insists he saw that long-ago night?

This story succeeds on several levels: a glimpse into Jessica’s world and her insight into the good and the not-so-good of accepting things at face value; Nadine’s learning the ropes; the surprising plot twist. Despite an abrupt ending, this is an interesting tale that keeps the pages turning and leaves the reader wanting more.

An excerpt from “Name of the Devil,” a Jessica Blackwood novel, is included.

Highly recommended. ( )

A really, really short story that was perfect to read as I was sitting outside with a cup of coffee watching the cat now and then with an eye so that he wouldn't do something stupid like jumping over the fence when he's leashed because of another cat.

Anyway, this story is so short that reviewing it will take away much of what's going one. I actually read it without having read what it was about. I had just finished the first book and it was there on my kindle app waiting for me to read it, so I went for it. It's a nice little interlude, perfect if you like the books in the series. ( )
