Axum Trading owner George Saxton turns to private investigator Amy Bell when his lifelong friend Barry Durham is shot and killed in Barry's New Jersey home. It's up to Amy to solve the case when the police reach a dead end.
Durham, a popular retired economics teacher and athletics coach, had turned his attention to politics as he prepared to run for town councilman-ignoring the anonymous phone calls warning him not to run. As Amy starts investigating the case, she learns that all the usual suspects, including his likely opponents, have ironclad alibis.
More suspects and secrets turn up as Amy continues probing into Barry's life. She also encounters another pressing matter, as a friend of her husband's has a mystery of his own for her to solve. Squaring that away, she heads back to the original case-when a bit of magic gives her the answer.
What trick does Amy have up her sleeve that will solve the crime? Find out in Murder with Magic, the latest in a series of Amy Bell murder mysteries. It's a mystery within a mystery that also shares lessons on contrition and forgiveness.
