The Magician's Lie - Greer Macallister

Beautiful :)

Water for Elephants meets The Night Circus in The Magician’s Lie, a debut novel in which the country’s most notorious female illusionist stands accused of her husband's murder --and she has only one night to convince a small-town policeman of her innocence.

The Amazing Arden is the most famous female illusionist of her day, renowned for her notorious trick of sawing a man in half on stage. One night in Waterloo, Iowa, with young policeman Virgil Holt watching from the audience, she swaps her trademark saw for a fire ax. Is it a new version of the illusion, or an all-too-real murder? When Arden’s husband is found lifeless beneath the stage later that night, the answer seems clear.

But when Virgil happens upon the fleeing magician and takes her into custody, she has a very different story to tell. Even handcuffed and alone, Arden is far from powerless—and what she reveals is as unbelievable as it is spellbinding. Over the course of one eerie night, Virgil must decide whether to turn Arden in or set her free… and it will take all he has to see through the smoke and mirrors

My thoughts and opinion:
2,5 Stars!

I'm sorry but I didn't even finish this book. It started of great with a murderer and only one suspect. Sounds easy right? No. The whole story of that suspect needs to be unfolded (started at birth of course) while the officer just wants to get over it. (Mind you a few pages of "you're guilty!", "no I'm not"). 

I actually kind of wanted to know what exactly happened but all of this just totally turned me off. Unfortunately :(

Thank you so much Legend Press for sending me this book <3
