Publisher's Summary

In Black Fall, the third book in the ITW Award-nominated series that began with the self-published phenomenon Angel Killer, magician-turned-FBI agent Jessica Blackwood investigates a series of seemingly unrelated but equally bizarre and sinister crimes that lead her to the Colorado desert and a town that has simply disappeared.

With two big cases under her belt, FBI agent Jessica Blackwood is learning to embrace her unconventional past as the rising star in a family dynasty of illusionists. Her talent and experience endow her with a unique understanding of the power and potential of deception and a gift for knowing when things are not always as they appear to be. Once resenting her eccentric grandfather, a brilliant magician in his own right, Jessica now sees him as a mentor and regularly seeks his advice about her work.

But Jessica's routine surveillance operation becomes a fight for survival when a disturbed young woman, clutching a baby, shows up at the stakeout location and threatens to kill her child. On the same day, an hour after a severe earthquake rocks the Eastern seaboard, a strange video goes viral. Nobel Prize-winning physicist Peter Devon has been dead for eight years, yet here he is on camera, predicting the location and date of the earthquake.

Jessica is put on the case by her boss, Dr. Ailes, but when Detective Aileen Lewis reports that they've found a Jane Doe who matches her description of her attacker, she's torn between professional duty and a personal desire to find out who the woman was, and why she was killed. The investigations pull her in very different directions - until they start to converge, leading Jessica to confront something darker and more powerful than anyone expected. Something so twisted, only one person could be behind it...the Warlock.

    Story
    "Another great thriller from Mayne"

    Easily his best Blackwood novel and ny second favorite book by him behind his Orbital thrilller.

    You should probably read his first two books before starting this one, but you are in luck, they are also very good.

    "Mayne does it again"

    Fast paced and fun. Mayne knocks this one out of the ballpark. I wish the story was longer.

    Story
    "It's possible the author himself is the Wizard."
    If you could sum up Black Fall in three words, what would they be?

    Intense realistic topical


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Black Fall?

    When fake news is used to set events into motion


    Have you listened to any of Jennifer O'Donnell and Fred Berman ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    They continue to bring a voice to the characters in a well read way


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    They set the plan into motion and now They are being uncovered.


    Any additional comments?

    Andrew Maybe continues to evolve his writing and advancing to using ideas from what he knows rather than making it a focus of the story.

    Black Fall is a story that could be taken right out of today's current events. Almost everything that happens in the story is feasible and based on reality without delving into science fiction territory. The characters continue to exist in a world that feels real and grounded in reality even with the fantastical events that surround them.

    I truly enjoy this series and eagerly await the chance to read the next one.
