Duncan Rose hustles his way through life, taking advantage of the foolish and overindulged. His weapon of choice - a deck of cards. Despite the dangers, he uses his skills with sleight-of-hand tricks to cheat at poker and tilt life in his favor. But when Duncan steps through a strange door and emerges in the Depression-ravaged world of 1934, he discovers a dark underworld of magicians and card cheats who use their skills simply to survive another day. Swindling his way through this bizarre new world, he searches for a doorway home, until a ruthless mobster takes notice - a man also looking for the strange door and not inclined to share the magic. In a race to find his way home, Duncan will need all his card skills, but more importantly, he'll need to trust those around him or risk losing everything.

What made the experience of listening to Real Magic the most enjoyable?
Characters come to life. I prefer written books. However, when driving that's not an option. This audio book didn't make me miss actually reading.
