Brighton, 1950. A girl is found cut in three, and Detective Inspector Edgar Stephens is convinced the killer is mimicking a famous magic trick—the Zig Zag Girl. The inventor of the trick, Max Mephisto, served with Edgar in a special ops troop called the Magic Men that used stage illusions to confound the enemy.

Journal Entry 2 by wingcestmoiwing at Hamilton, Ontario Canada on Friday, July 21, 2023
This was a fun take on the normal whodunnit with the main cast of characters having known each other in a secret agency, nicknamed The Magic Men, during WWII (5 years before the story takes place). They have all gone their separate ways but a death related to a magic trick brings them together to solve 3 murders before they are all murdered.

The author uses a famous Agatha Christie plot device so I was able to guess the "whodunnit" fairly early in the novel and I think most people familiar with Agatha Christie (or whodunnits in general) may guess the outcome early on. That doesn't take away from it being a fun, light mystery and pleasant way to spend a summer evening.
