Meet Jessica Blackwood, FBI Agent and ex-illusionist.
Called in because of her past to offer expertise on the mysterious ‘Warlock’ case, Jessica must put all her unique knowledge to the test as the FBI try to catch a ruthless killer.
Needing to solve the unsolvable, and with the clock ticking, they’re banking on her being the only one able to see beyond the Warlock’s illusions.
The first in a brilliant new series, Angel Killer will have you feverishly turning the pages, and in Jessica Blackwood, Mayne has created a complex, sassy and unforgettable new heroine.
‘Professional illusionist Mayne introduces a fresh angle to serial-killer hunting.’ Booklist
‘Mayne has created an unbelievably unforgettable book! 5 Stars!’ Suspense Magazine
This is a book I couldn't put down and one that I won't forget easily. I'm now desperate to read the next in the series.
Does Jonathan Creek finally have a successor?
In Jessica, we have a fascinating female protagonist who possesses unique skills in a daring series that has the potential to explore exciting new avenues into the world of crime and the illuminating art of professional illusionism.
Mayne has created a likeable and plausible character in Jessica Blackwood; the writing is vivid and the story well-paced. The use of illusion in the crimes works really well and I found it entertaining trying to work out how these impossible crimes could have been committed.
