The Good: This is a fun story, the Silver Family is almost impossible to dislike. Grandma Flossie and Great Uncle Sterling - two thirds of the once famous magic act The Scintillating Silvers - have that old fashioned vaudeville sensibility that makes for great screwball comedy. Twin sisters Goldie and Godiva are flamboyant and quirky in their own right - which makes it all the better when they try to be "the voice of reason" to the elders.
Bad News: The mystery aspect of this story isn't very good. To put it in the vernacular of The Scintillating Silvers, "It's a flop." Not very original and really not even all that interesting. Thankfully, it's a relatively small part of the overall story - mostly an excuse to have the family descend on Vegas and go through their shtick.
If you're in the mood for a good mystery this isn't it, but if you want to read a fun story about a quirky, oddball family of amateur sleuths running around Las Vegas then you might enjoy this book.
This book is suitable for all readers. There is no graphic violence, explicit sex or strong language.
Review copy provided by author/publisher in exchange for honest review.
And what better place to set a mystery being investigated by magicians than Las Vegas? The basic outline of the plot is adequately described elsewhere, so I won't go into it here. The plot is excellent, and the crimes are unusual both in their execution and their raison d'etre, with amusing and unexpected twists and turns.
