Kristy Cambron's story of illusion and faith in the roaring '20s will engage listeners with its well-plotted mystery and intriguing historical details. Amy Rubinate narrates the novel with mixed success. Despite the work she does to make the main character, a vaudevillian named Wren, such a relatable character, her staccato delivery frequently distracts from the story, interfering with the listener's complete enjoyment of the book. On the other hand, Rubinate differentiates voices in a way that makes conversations easy to follow. She also inserts the perfect amount of emotion into the characters, especially Wren, who once apprenticed for Harry Houdini and now must try to prove the innocence of a fraudster Houdini once debunked.
