9781784296674: The Blood Card: Stephens and Mephisto Mystery 3

[Read by James Langton]

In the third Magic Men mystery, the first partially set in America, a threat of mass violence looms over Elizabeth II's coronation. Can DI Edgar Stephens and Max Mephisto crack the case and save the crown?

Elizabeth II's coronation is looming, but DI Edgar Stephens is busy investigating the death of a local fortuneteller. Meanwhile, his old pal, the magician Max Mephisto, is rehearsing for his television debut, a Coronation Day variety show. But upon hearing that their wartime commander, Colonel Cartwright, has been found dead in his flat, the two men join forces to find out what happened.

While Max is stuck in rehearsals, Edgar finds himself heading to New York, hot on the trail of a mesmerist he's sure has valuable information for them -- and his trusty sergeant, Emma, investigates some important leads at home. As the clock ticks down to Coronation Day, the team must scramble to keep Max's small-screen debut from ending in a dangerously explosive finale.

About the Author:

Elly Griffiths is the author of the Ruth Galloway mysteries and the Stephens and Mephisto series. She is the winner of the 2011 Mary Higgins Clark Award and the 2016 CWA Dagger in the Library Award. She lives in Brighton, on the south coast of England, with her family.

Review:

"Griffiths excels at depicting the post-WWII transition from variety shows to television. A love triangle involving Holmes, Stephens, and aspiring magician Ruby French, the detective’s fiancée 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

Descripción Quercus Publishing, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Elizabeth II s coronation is looming, but the murder of their wartime commander, Colonel Cartwright, spoils the happy mood for DI Edgar Stephens and magician Max Mephisto. A playbill featuring another deceased comrade is found in Colonel Cartwright s possession, and a playing card, the ace of hearts: the blood card. The wartime connection and the suggestion of magic are enough for him to put Stephens and Mephisto on the case.Edgar s investigation into the death of Brighton fortune-teller Madame Zabini is put on hold. Max is busy rehearsing for a spectacular Coronation Day variety show - and his television debut - so it s Edgar who is sent to New York, a land of plenty worlds away from still-rationed England. He s on the trail of a small-town mesmerist who may provide the key, but someone else silences him first. It s Sergeant Emma Holmes who finds the clue, buried in the files of the Zabini case, that leads them to an anarchist group intent on providing an explosive finale to Coronation Day.Now it s up to Edgar, Max and Emma to foil the plot, and find out who it is who s been dealing the cards . . .
