Reviews

"Griffiths excels at depicting the post-World War II transition from variety shows to television. A love triangle involving Holmes, Stephens, and aspiring magician Ruby French, the detective's fiancΓ©e and Mephisto's daughter, adds a human-interest angle likely to engage both series fans and new readers."--Publishers Weekly

"Amusing, atmospheric, and thoroughly engaging, providing an insightful look at vaudeville and the art of legerdemain. Perfect for fans of the eccentric (and often endearing) characters created by Simon Brett and Christopher Fowler."--Booklist

"In the third case for the Magic Men (Smoke and Mirrors, 2016, etc.), half the fun is the journey through postwar England to the surprising denouement."--Kirkus Reviews
