Mystery & Suspense • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

THE MAGICIAN is one of those rare books that, once you read it, you will never forget. Yet, despite having sold more than one million copies, it remains relatively unknown. Thankfully, Blackstone Audio has recorded the book, making it available for the first time on audio. The tale of a teenaged magician, high school violence and extortion, and a criminal trial, THE MAGICIAN focuses on teenagers, but resonates with all readers. Grover Gardner connects as well. Gardner’s voice and style fit the teenaged naïveté and bravado that inhabit the book’s main characters, and he paces the story beautifully, particularly the climactic courtroom scenes. Fans of the novel will not be disappointed, nor will the new generations just discovering this classic. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
