Publisher Description

Now You See Me is the first in the Lacey Flint series, followed by 2012's Dead Scared and 2013's Lost.

"Bolton is changing the face of crime fiction—if you only read one crime novel this year, make it this." —Tess Gerritsen on Now You See Me

"Really special: multi-layered and sophisticated, but tough too." —Lee Child on Now You See Me

One night after interviewing a reluctant witness at a London apartment complex, Lacey Flint, a young detective constable, stumbles onto a woman brutally stabbed just moments before in the building's darkened parking lot. Within twenty-four hours a reporter receives an anonymous letter that points out alarming similarities between the murder and Jack the Ripper's first murder—a letter that calls out Lacey by name. If it's real, and they have a killer bent on re-creating London's bloody past, history shows they have just five days until the next attempt.

No one believes the connections are anything more than a sadistic killer's game, not even Lacey, whom the killer seems to be taunting specifically. However, as they investigate the details of the case start reminding her more and more of a part of her past she'd rather keep hidden. And the only way to do that is to catch the killer herself.

Fast paced and completely riveting, S. J. Bolton's Now You See Me is a modern gothic novel that is nothing less than a masterpiece of suspense fiction.

A Kirkus Reviews Best of 2011 Mysteries title and one of Library Journal's Best Mystery Books of 2011.

Best I've read in awhile!

I never read series & as soon as I finished, I was in the iBook store buying the next book. Kept me guessing, which was awesome because I usually have the plot figured out early on. Loved the British background, which I find irritating in movies because if I didn't understand the context of the word I just looked it up. Excellent summer read!

Intriguing and suspenseful!

A 5 star worthy book that you just can't put down. One I will read again!

Writing about horrific sexual mutilation of women is NOT literature. Skip this book unless you are a sicko.
