Publisher's Summary

Chas is a detective who doesn't stake out cheating husbands, track down missing persons, or match wits with femmes fatales. Instead of pounding the pavement, he taps a computer keyboard. He can get the goods on anyone, and it's all to make sure superstar Las Vegas mind reader Wallace the Amazing stays amazing. Thanks to Chas's steady stream of stealthy intel, Wallace's mental "magic" packs houses every night.

But when someone threatens to call the psychic showman's bluff, the sweet gig takes a sour - and sinister - turn. Who's the clean-cut couple gunning for Wallace with an arsenal of dirty tricks? Why does Wallace keep upping the ante instead of backing down? And just how much does Chas really know about his mysterious boss's life...or his own? The tangled truth - of blackmail, kidnapping, and false identities - quickly becomes the biggest case of his strange, secret career.

    "Ethics 101 over and over and over again"

    You know I like when an author has a message, but what I don't like is when said author thinks his readers are too stupid to pickup on the message so he or she feels motivated to beat you over the head with it for at least 10 of the 24 chapters in the book.
    When the author was relating the actual story this book was interesting, entertaining, and enjoyable but when the author felt like he was either called to preach or teach I was ready to figuratively pitch everything in the fireplace.
    About burning a credit...not again for me. If an author wants to preach or teach, don't list the book under mysteries

    "Disappointed with Jonathan Stone"

    I have enjoyed the author's other novels. The crazy plots were fun and surprising. Here, after a really fun start, the plot gets in the way. The twists and twists and twists go too far. The life described was simply too ridiculous. Unless the main character was in a coma for twenty years, he would have known that things could not have been as they seemed. And the MORAL OF STORY is repeated, in excruciating directness, OVER AND OVER AND OVER. I get it, Mr. Stone, I get it. Stop preaching! Subtlety is the secret of great magic acts...and of writing. There was nothing subtle about Two for The Show. That said, I liked his other novels so much that I will read his next one (but will approach with trepidation).

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "Brilliant and magical psychological thriller!"

    Two for the Show is my third Jonathan Stone novel. The first, Moving Day, is an incredibly wonderful story that is easily among the best novels I have listened to this year. The second, The Teller, started well but became a jumbled mess. Two for the Show is a brilliant and delightfully weird book that defies description. It is certainly not for everyone; some will not like it at all.. The end of the book has the grand master of all plot twists that blew my mind.

    Audible describes the genre as modern detective mystery/thriller. I describe it as a psychological thriller. It is really one hell of a story.

    RC Bray is rapidly becoming one of my favorite narrators. His work here is superb!

    "Ray Porter is great. But the writing was laconic "

    "Not what I thought it would be"

    I thought I was going to listen to more of a crime or real detective type story but that was not the case. I think the book was OK I was just disappointed that it wasn't what I expected

    "Not even RC Bray could make this exciting "

    I really had to struggle to get through this at several points. Not an intriguing story. It felt like the author had to keep saving himself from his story.

    "Deceptively Spun Mystery"

    Mystery takes you on an amazing ride by the Amazing Wallace and of course by Jonathan Stone. Great book made better by letting R C Bray stretching his considerable literary wings. Simply fantastic . RC you are the best, Cheers
