Spotlight on Andrew Mayne

Happy Banned Book Week!

I will be reviewing Andrew Mayne's newest book next week, but the blog tour I had scheduled for today. My reading is lagging behind, I apologize. So today I thought I would introduce you to Andrew Mayne and his book.

Andrew Mayne is at the forefront of the next generation of magic. Star of A&E's "Don't Trust Andrew Mayne". He has performed his unique brand of illusion on five continents, his YouTube videos have millions of views and he’s cultivated thousands of fans for his magic, books and podcasts calling themselves ‘Mayniacs’. He has taken magic in a new direction and created his own style of magic called “Shock Magic”; combining the impact of large scale illusion with the in-your-face approach of street magic.

Andrew started his first world illusion tour while he was a teenager and was soon headlining in resorts and casinos around the world. With the support of talk show host and amateur magician Johnny Carson, Andrew Mayne started a program to use magic to teach critical thinking skills in public schools for the James Randi Educational Foundation.

Now Andrew has jumped into another frontier, he is writting mystery and thriller novels. He has published five bestselling books thus far. His recent thriller, Angel Killer, is the first in a series featuring a female FBI agent Jessica Blackwood who has a background magic...of course!

Information about the book:

FBI agent Jessica Blackwood believes she has successfully left her complicated life as a gifted magician behind her . . . until a killer with seemingly supernatural powers puts her talents to the ultimate test.

A mysterious hacker, who identifies himself only as “Warlock,” brings down the FBI’s website and posts a code in its place. It hides the GPS coordinates of a Michigan cemetery, where a dead girl is discovered rising from the ground . . . as if she tried to crawl out of her own grave.

Born into a dynasty of illusionists, Jessica Blackwood is destined to become its next star—until she turns her back on her troubled family, and her legacy, to begin a new life in law enforcement. But FBI consultant Dr. Jeffrey Ailes’s discovery of an old copy of Magician Magazine will turn Jessica’s carefully constructed world upside down. Faced with a crime that appears beyond explanation, Ailes has nothing to lose—and everything to gain—by taking a chance on an agent raised in a world devoted to seemingly achieving the impossible.

The body in the cemetery is only the first in the Warlock’s series of dark miracles. Thrust into the media spotlight, with time ticking away until the next crime, can Jessica confront her past to embrace her gifts and stop a depraved killer?

If she can’t, she may become his next victim.
