Now You See Me...

Read Chapter One |Reviews | Reader's Guide

For feisty Los Angeles crime reporter Molly Blume, life is good. She is newly married (to the adoring and adorable Rabbi Zack), and her latest true-crime book is a hot seller. When an overardent fan's attentions arouse Molly's suspicion, however, her toughts turn uneasily to stalkers.

But the fan, Reuben Jastrow, swears that he desperately needs Molly's help in finding his eighteen-yer-old daughter, Hadassah, who has run away from home to be with a man she met on the Internet.

Molly hesitantly agrees--and immediately has regrets. For Reuben hasn't told her the whole truth. The more Molly look sfor clues to the missing girl's fate, the more she wonders:

Is Hadassah a random victim of a predator, or is the girl a pawn in a scheme of revenge against her family?

It's a long, deadly path that stretches before Molly, a path mined with hidden passions and festering secrets. And it ends with a final twist and an unnerving truth:

What we don't see can lead to danger...and tragedy.


Now You See Me, the fourth Molly Blume mystery, will be out in trade paperback original ($13.95) October 25.
