Mystery - Large Print Standing Order Plan

Option Number: [4]

Selected from a mix of all the popular mystery subgenres — classic whodunits‚ hard-boiled‚ cozies‚ police procedurals‚ true crime‚ adventure/suspense — featuring many of the highly acclaimed and unique mystery titles popular with today’s readers.



Retired from the tour circuit on which he made his name, master magician The Great Merlini runs a magic shop in New York’s Times Square and moonlights as a consultant for the NYPD. The cops call him when faced with crimes so impossible that they can only be comprehended by a magician’s mind. In the latest case, two occultists are discovered dead in locked rooms, one spread out on a pentagram, both seemingly murdered under similar circumstances. Suspects include an escape artist, a professional medium, and a ventriloquist — clearly a realm that Merlini knows well. But in the end it will take his logical skills, not his magical ones, to apprehend the killer.
