Bluff by Michael Kardos
A very entertaining novel about a twenty-seven year old magician - Natalie Webb - who is trying to make a comeback in the business after being shunned by the magic world. Things go horribly wrong at one of her gigs in the very first chapter and that sets the stage for this novel. Natalie is incredibly talented with sleight of hand card tricks and she meets a skilled poker player, who also happens to be a card cheat. Natalie is offered the chance to pull off a $1.5 million magic trick that they are sure to get away with, but she has to cheat, which goes against everything she's been taught and knows about magic. A well-written novel, full of suspense, twists, turns and a brilliant con game!
