The Invisible Assistant: An Eli Marks Short Mystery


There's no question it was murder. But who killed whom? What begins as a typical corporate event for magician Eli Marks turns into a twisted mystery when he is called to the site of a recent murder/suicide. Confronted by the details of the grisly crime scene, Eli must sort through the post-mortem clues - and the bickering of the officials as well as a poorly-timed allergy attack - to determine just who murdered whom. * * * PRAISE FOR THE ELI MARKS MYSTERY SERIES "You will just LOVE these books.” – VANISH Magazine “This is an instant classic, in a league with Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and Arthur Conan Doyle.” – John Lehman, Rosebud Book Reviews “It’s full of magic, mystery, danger and misdirection, as a good magic trick should be. I love this cozy mystery series, a thoroughly delightful read.” – Sweet Mystery Books “Before I had even finished the first chapter I had fallen in love with Eli. He is intelligent, sensitive, witty and, suddenly, the main suspect in a series of murders
well written, fast-paced and exciting.” – The Frugal Mennonite “This story is very well written and fun to read. I would definitely read another Eli Marks Mystery!” – A Simple Taste for Reading “Gaspard's latest Eli Marks mystery has as many tricks up its sleeve as its likable magician-hero.
