This week, I'm highlighting my current read, which is The Miser's Dream by John Gaspard.
Yes, this is a mystery, with a magician as the main character, and the title refers to a trick that comes up multiple times over the course of the book. I'm still reading it, so I'm not sure how it all plays out yet, but I'm enjoying it.
Here is how the book opens:
"I'm a hack."
Holy crap, did I just say that out loud? My intention had been to whisper those three words silently to myself, but apparently my brain hadn't properly communicated that goal to my mouth.
Moving on to page 56, we find this:
At the sound of this name, Harry lowered the book. "Clifford Thomas? You're going to talk to Clifford Thomas? The Clifford Thomas?"
And there you have it for this week. Have a wonderful weekend!
