TLC Book Tour: Angel Killer

Angel Killer
A Jessica Blackwood Novel
by Andrew Mayne

Paperback, 352 pages

I will freely admit to being a mystery/suspense/thriller/detective novel addict. If there is a crime to be solved, especially murder, I am up for the challenge.

And there are so many spins on crime fiction, it boggles the imagination. And just when I thought I had seen it all? World renowned illusionist Andrew Mayne comes out with a smart, dynamic investigator who just happens to have a serious background in magic. One that she tries to forget - until up against a brilliant, and evil, illusionist of crime.

I love this premise and Mayne pulls it off beautifully. Angel Killer is to be the first in a series of Jessica Blackwood novels and now is the time to start reading.

Intriguing, refreshing, intelligent, dark, and fun. Everything you want it to be.

From the Back Flap:

FBI agent Jessica Blackwood believes she has successfully left her complicated life as a gifted magician behind her . . . until a killer with seemingly supernatural powers puts her talents to the ultimate test.

A mysterious hacker, who identifies himself only as “Warlock,” brings down the FBI’s website and posts a code in its place. It hides the GPS coordinates of a Michigan cemetery, where a dead girl is discovered rising from the ground . . . as if she tried to crawl out of her own grave.

Born into a dynasty of illusionists, Jessica Blackwood is destined to become its next star—until she turns her back on her troubled family, and her legacy, to begin a new life in law enforcement. But FBI consultant Dr. Jeffrey Ailes’s discovery of an old copy of Magician Magazine will turn Jessica’s carefully constructed world upside down. Faced with a crime that appears beyond explanation, Ailes has nothing to lose—and everything to gain—by taking a chance on an agent raised in a world devoted to seemingly achieving the impossible.

The body in the cemetery is only the first in the Warlock’s series of dark miracles. Thrust into the media spotlight, with time ticking away until the next crime, can Jessica confront her past to embrace her gifts and stop a depraved killer?

If she can’t, she may become his next victim.

Wildly innovative, highly-visual with a little bit of mischief thrown in, Andrew Mayne is at the forefront of the next generation of magic. Star of A&E's Don't Trust Andrew Mayne, he’s performed his unique brand of illusion on five continents, his YouTube videos have millions of views and he’s cultivated thousands of fans for his magic, books and podcasts calling themselves ‘Mayniacs’.
