The Magician's Lie by Greer Macallister
The Amazing Arden is the most notorious female illusionist of her day, renowned for sawing a man in half.
One night, with policeman Virgil Holt in the audience, she swaps her saw for a fire ax. A new trick or an all-too-real murder? When a dead body is discovered, the answer seems clear. But under Holt's interrogation, what Arden’s story reveals is both unbelievable and spellbinding.
Even handcuffed and alone, she is far from powerless. During one eerie night, Holt must decide whether to turn Arden in or set her free…and it will take all he has to see through the smoke and mirrors.
