Editorial Reviews

Review

"The fourth entry in the 'Magic Men' series (The Blood Card) presents a fascinating look behind the curtain of the 1950s showbiz as well as an engaging mystery, especially when DI Stephens and his sergeants are involved."—Library Journal

"The magic is stronger than ever when the brilliant cast of characters comes together again...has consistently been a thoroughly entertaining series."—Booklist

"Solid...Griffiths nicely evokes the post-WWII zeitgeist in Britain, incorporating details about hypocritical censorship laws and the theatrical lifestyle. Those who favor human intrigues over crime solving should find this a charming holiday read."—Publishers Weekly

“Griffiths’s idiosyncratic work has dealt with the collision of the ancient and the modern, and although her latest novel is set in a strikingly evoked Brighton of the early 1950s, we see things through Griffiths’s very modern sensibility . . . Griffiths herself dispenses several acts of prestidigitation, invigorating the shop-worn format of the police procedural with a piquant mixture of humor, period detail (including the church-baiting nude tableaux of the day, which play a key role in the narrative) and truly beguiling characterization.” — Financial Times

PRAISE FOR THE MAGIC MEN MYSTERIES:
 
“Absorbing . . . Another great series.” — San Jose Mercury News
 
“Thoroughly enjoyable.” — Guardian
 
“Clever, immensely likeable.” — Wall Street Journal
 
“Enormously engaging.” — Daily Mail
 
“Original, lively, and gripping.” — Independent
 
“A wild ride full of mayhem, magic and murder.” — The Absolute
 
“Excellent . . . Evoking both the St. Mary Mead of Agatha Christie and the theater world of Ngaio Marsh.” — Booklist
 
“Suspenseful.” — Publishers Weekly
