Charles Benedict—magnetic criminal defense lawyer, amateur illusionist, and professional hit man—and private investigator Dana Cutler are on a collision course set in motion by Benedict's greatest sleight of hand yet: framing a millionaire for the murder of his much younger wife.

Ten years ago, Horace Blair fell in love with Carrie, the prosecutor during his DUI trial. After a torrid courtship, he persuaded her to marry him and to sign a prenuptial agreement guaranteeing her twenty million dollars if she remained faithful during the first ten years of their marriage. The week before their tenth anniversary, Carrie disappears, and Horace is charged with her murder. Desperate to clear his name, the millionaire hires one of D.C.'s most brilliant and ruthless defense attorneys—Charles Benedict.

Meanwhile, private investigator Dana Cutler is in the Pacific Northwest on the trail of a stolen relic, a gold scepter dating back to the Ottoman Empire. Hitting a dead end, she returns to Virginia, perplexed and disappointed—and straight into the twisting case of Horace and Carrie Blair.

From the Back Cover:

Charles Benedict—criminal defense lawyer, amateur illusionist, and professional hit man—and private investigator Dana Cutler are on a collision course set in motion by Benedict's greatest sleight of hand yet: framing a millionaire for the murder of his wife.

Ten years ago, Horace Blair persuaded Carrie, the prosecutor during his DUI trial, to marry him and sign a prenuptial agreement guaranteeing her twenty million dollars if she remained faithful during the first decade of their marriage. Just before their tenth anniversary, Carrie disappears, and Horace is charged with her murder. He hires Charles Benedict—one of D.C.'s most brilliant and ruthless defense attorneys.

Hitting a dead end on the case she was working on in the Pacific Northwest, private investigator Dana Cutler returns to Virginia and straight into the Carrie Blair murder investigation. It's the perfect crime, unless Dana can conjure a few tricks of her own to take down a cunning psychopath and expose his diabolical plot—before he can work his deadly magic on her.
