"On stage, in front of a crowd, a magician was murdered and no one saw it happen. The people with a strong motive to kill him -- and there are several -- were all in attendance, but the rest of the audience is their alibi. Everyone wanted him dead, yet no one could have done it. Robin Lockwood is a young criminal defense attorney and partner in a prominent law firm in Portland, Oregon. A former MMA fighter and Yale Law graduate, she joined the firm of legal legend Regina Barrister not long before Regina's health forced her into retirement. One of Regina's former clients, Robert Chesterfield, shows up in the law office seeking help from his old attorney. Chesterfield is a professional magician of some renown who has a major new trick he's about to debut. When Robin Lockwood looks into his previous relationship with the firm, she learns that twenty years ago he was arrested for two murders and one attempted murder, and he was involved in the potentially suspicious death of his very rich wife. At the time, Regina Barrister defended him with ease, after which he resumed his career as a magician in Las Vegas. Decades later, he attempted to debut his new trick, a sure career-maker he called the Chamber of Death -- only to disappear at the end, with everyone from debtors to mobsters on his heels. Now, a few years later, he brings together an audience of prominent people, including Robin Lockwood, to finally debut the Chamber of Death. Only this time he dies, murdered, with dozens of witnesses and no one the wiser. Now it is up to Robin Lockwood to unravel the tangled skein of murder and bloody mischief to learn who managed the impossible and why."--,Provided by publisher.
