    • Abstract:
      Summary: Robin Lockwood joined the firm of legal legend Regina Barrister not long before Regina was forced into retirement by early onset Alzheimer's. One of Regina's former clients, Robert Chesterfield, shows up in the law office with an odd request-- he's seeking help from his old attorney in acquiring patent protection for an illusion. Chesterfield is a professional magician and he has a major new trick he's about to debut. When Lockwood looks into his previous relationship with the firm, she learns that twenty years ago Chesterfield was arrested for two murders, one attempted murder, and was involved in the potentially suspicious death of his very rich wife. As he performs the debut of the Chamber of Death, Chesterfield is murders-- with dozens of witnesses and no one the wiser. -- adapted from jacket

Booklist Reviews 2020 February #2

The third Robin Lockwood novel (following The Perfect Alibi, 2019) from the veteran New York Times best-selling author of more than 20 legal thrillers. This time, Lockwood is drawn into the world of a professional magician, Lord Chesterfield, who claims to be British royalty, accused of three suspicious deaths in the past, including that of his wealthy wife. He was defended and acquitted each time by Lockwood's mentor, Regina Barrister. Now Chesterfield asks Lockwood to handle the copyright for his greatest illusion, the Chamber of Death. He pulls a for-real vanishing act after its preview to escape his debts, then shows up again three years later and announces he is resurrecting the Chamber. The deputy DA who prosecuted his cases—along with Chesterfield's creditors, rival magicians, several women he misused, and his late wife's daughter—are all in attendance at the opening performance. When the sarcophagus is opened, Chesterfield is dead inside. A smooth, tight narrative with a snappy, old-time whodunit finish. Margolin pulls off his own sleight of hand when the murderer is revealed. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

Criminal defense attorney Robin Lockwood has just received the strangest request of her career: a magician seeks patent protection for an illusion he's about to perform. When she investigates, Robin discovers that he is a former client her firm helped clear of murder and attempted murder charges. What's most bizarre: when the magician performs his new illusion, he is what disappears.
