Quick Review: The Last Illusion by Rhys Bowen

on September 12, 2010

I know I devote a large amount of time to cozy mysteries, as I love them so much, so I will make this one – by one of my favorite authors – quick!

I was surprised to see a new Molly Murphy mystery on the shelf at the library last week. It had come out in March. I couldn’t wait to read it, though, as it pairs Molly with master magician Harry Houdini as she is hired by his wife for the huge assignment of protecting him from suspected killers. The book starts off with a magic act gone wrong, and soon Houdini himself disappears (for real!). Molly is drawn in to the theater world of illusionists as she seeks to figure out where Harry has gone, what he might be hiding, and who’s telling the truth and who is merely hiding behind illusions. Along the way she struggles with fiance Daniel’s discomfort and disapproval of her work and the planning of their future together.

All in all, it was a fun read!

Let me know what you think!
