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.

    "fantastic continuation to an intriguing story"

    Obviously if you have made it to book 3 you already enjoyed the first two in the series. Usually I find that come the second or third book in a series I start to lose interest, however I powered straight through this book. My only complaint is that the ending doesn't feel like the end of the book and I will have to wait a while for the next one!

    Story
    "I love these Jessica Blackwood novels"

    The story and reading are both excellent. Jessica's character is strong and intriguing with a very interesting back story. There is enough of a character through line to feel invested in the book and characters, but no so much that I don't feel you couldn't start with any of the novels.

    I was repeatedly surprised by the twists and it all seemed fairly believable for such a large scale plot.

    I'm glad this one came out on audible at the same time as the book version instead of having to wait like the last one. Definitely worth a listen. I look forward to more from Andrew Mayne.
