    Book Description

    There's nothing quite like a circus. The Carnivale de Fantastique is an acrobatic and musical phenomenon, a show based on the legends of a circus that vanished mysteriously half a century ago. Every season the numbers grow, the merchandising expands and the ticket sales explode.

    This year things are a little different. This year the star of the show was murdered and shipped to the next city in a cardboard box. This year the acts are running into all sorts of troubles, and even the police and the F.B.I. are trying to figure out what's causing all the troubles.

    Once upon a time there was a kid named Cecil. He ran away, joined the circus and then got murdered for his troubles. Fifty years later, he clawed his way out of Hell, found the people who killed him and his circus and had his bloody revenge. Since then he's been trying to find something to do with his time and now he's heard about the Carnivale de Fantastique, a show based on the disappearance of the circus he traveled with. Of course it's not a traditional circus. This one has acrobats and dancers and actors and a story. It's only missing one thing and it's just not funny. When in doubt, send in the clowns.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining; but where is Crowley June 11, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I have read all of James A. Moore's novels and have many of his signed limited editions. He is definitely one of my top 5 authors to read.

    Like Cherry Hill, Smile No More was billed to be a Jonathan Crowley novel. Cherry Hill was correctly dubbed; but Smile No More was not. Was very disappointed. The novel was held in the Jonathan Crowley universe and Crowley and Rufo the Clown did cross paths in a backstory - but that was one page only. While I was disappointed that Crowley was missing in action, I did enjoy the story. As usual, Moore tells a great tale. I do have to agree with the other reviewer that this was not one of his best. No matter, if Moore writes it I am reading it.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Not his best April 28, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I was ecstatic when 3 of Jim Moore's books popped up on Kindle and immediately dived in. All in all I'd give this 3.5 stars if I could. I didn't dislike it, but it didn't quite grab me like he usually does.

    Rufo the clown has his terrifying moments, but some things seem muddles and unclear as you're reading. Some of the motivations and thought behind the actions seems to ring hollow somehow. I also had a hard time believing the show would go on with as many bodies as were being littered about. At some point their insurance company would have been screaming about liability!
