Haunted by broken relationships, defeated by murders left unsolved, FBI Agent Rob Hanson journeys to the North Carolina Outer Banks to mend an old friendship and clear his head. Instead, two old murders come into focus. But a question carelessly asked draws the attention of the quintessential assassin, Copperfield, who's determined to put Rob out of the picture, and all his friends, too.
Intricate, intimate, its characters richly drawn, The Magician's Secrets is a delicious read.
PRAISE FOR THE MAGICIAN'S SECRETS:
"... Sauls has masterfully created a thriller that is as much literary success as it is mystery. This is a must-read book for the summer; especially for those who love the Outer Banks, and love a great story." - Robert Kelly-Goss, The Daily Advance
The Magician's Secrets is a strikingly ambitious debut novel that delivers the real goods - compelling readability, sharply realized characters, a watchspring-tight plot, the perils and the pleasures of memory, the burden of guilt, and the promise of redemption. The real magician here is J. G. Sauls, and that is a secret that no reader will be able to keep for long. -Keith Ferrell, author of Passing Judgment, former Editor-In-Chief, OMNI magazine
