Smoke and Mirrors by Elly Griffiths (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt; LJ starred review)
Appeared on the October 2019 LibraryReads list
“Thrilled for another opportunity to enjoy D.I. Stephens and Max Mephisto joining forces against crime and intrigue. It may appear lighthearted with its theatrical/magician twist, but these detective stories are full of dark happenings. Solving the gruesome murder of two local children dampens the holiday spirit in this small town. The lead characters are very enjoyable and the theater setting is so unique. I enjoyed the love interest/overprotected daughter storyline as well! Very much looking forward to the next installment.”
—Carol Ward, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Solon, OH

“The continuing adventures of P.I. Charley Davidson and the Grim Reaper (not as mutually exclusive as one would think) are just as delightful as in previous books, with new characters including a wonderfully snarky new demon. Jones expands on Charley’s existing relationships and supernatural powers. It’s the perfect paranormal-romance-mystery blend that you never knew you always wanted.”—Donna Matturri, Pickerington Public Library, Pickerington, OH

Readers will be excited to see where this series goes.
