Malenko Pendragon and his assistant Princess Aine claim to be two of the greatest magicians in history, and thousands of years old as well. Aine, claiming to be over three thousand years old and never aging a day, Malenko, claiming to have come from the land of magic, living each life, and reincarnating when that life is over, have toured the world and amazed crowds with their stunning blend of magic and storytelling. But now, when a pair of old friends are trying to solve an old murder mystery, Malenko and Princess Aine arrive in their town, promising the show of a lifetime, and dropping hints they know about the murder and disappearance that took place so many years ago.
As the magic show gets closer, and the friends are in far too deep to back out of the investigation, Malenko and Aine show they didn’t come to this show alone. More assistants and players in their show arrive and, although everyone is asking questions, Malenko and his team of magicians don’t show their true hand until the very end. Murder, mystery and magic. A stunning finale that will keep the reader guessing until the final trick.
