The Blood Card (Hardback)

Elly Griffiths

-  

There's an anarchist plot and a ticking bomb... the stakes are higher than ever for DI Edgar Stephens and magician Max Mephisto in the latest book in Elly Griffiths' hit series.

Elizabeth II's coronation is looming, but the murder of wartime commander, Colonel Cartwright, spoils the happy mood for DI Edgar Stephens and magician Max Mephisto. A playbill featuring another deceased comrade is found in Colonel Cartwright's possession, and a playing card, the ace of hearts: the blood card...
With a wartime connection and a suggestion of magic, the duo make it their mission to solve this case. However, this means Edgar's investigation into the death of a Brighton fortune-teller is put on hold and Max is busy rehearsing for his television debut. Therefore, it's Edgar who heads to New York to track down a small-town mesmerist who may provide the key to the whole situation.

Sergeant Emma Holmes is also on the case and she finds a clue buried in the files of the Zabini case. This sparks off another issue - there's a group hell-bent on providing an explosive finale to Coronation Day. Will our heroes be able to foil the plot?
