From the Back Cover
An hour after a severe earthquake rocks the Eastern seaboard, a video of Nobel Prize—winning physicist Peter Devon predicting the location and date of the earthquake goes viral.
But Peter Devon has been dead for eight years.
The FBI’s best chance at finding an explanation is agent Jessica Blackwood. Raised as the rising star in a family dynasty of illusionists, Jessica has talent and experience that endow her with a gift for knowing when things are not always as they appear to be. Jessica’s boss, Dr. Ailes, puts her on the case even though she’s still recovering from a routine surveillance operation gone horribly wrong. When police discover a body that matches her description of the disturbed young woman who attacked her at the stakeout, Jessica is torn between professional duty and a personal desire to find out who this woman was, and why she was killed.
The investigations pull her in very different directions—until they start to converge, leading Jessica to confront something so twisted, only one person could be behind it . . .

Andrew Mayne is either a genius or does A LOT of research because every time I checked any fact in the book (be it about computers, historic events or magic) it panned out. Or did it? Reading his books makes me trust the internet less than ever before and makes me want to take down my Facebook page!
If you think about picking up a Jessica Blackwood novel, do yourself a favor and start with Angel Killer and read them in order. You won't regret it if you enjoy a good mystery with lots of drama but enough "comic relief" from the sarcastic and funny protagonist's thoughts and comments to lighten the mood.
In all, I like the Jessica Blackwood series and have read all three books. Hats off to Andrew Mayne for such a great heroine and original idea for her character.
All of sudden I'm reading "What do you got?" and "You got to have your own moments" and horrible grammar like that. If I had noticed such writing before this novel, I would have reacted. Come on, Andrew, hire another copy editor or learn grammar yourself.
Be sure to read in order for proper development.
