On the surface, Samantha Shaw's life looks pretty good - she has a hot boyfriend, private investigator Gabe Pulizzi, and her own business, Heart Mates Dating Service. But, raising two boys and keeping track of her ornery magician grandfather is tricky business...especially when you add murder to the mix...She hasn't even begun to figure it out when her grandfather, Barney Webb, winds up in trouble of his own - he's been accused by arrogant magician Shane Masters of hiring a hit man to kill him. Sam knows it can't be true, despite Shane's practice of exposing other illusionists' secrets in a series of popular "spoiler" shows. Proving Grandpa's innocence is priority number one, even though the old man is strangely resistant to her offers to get to the bottom of Shane's accusation. But, when Shane Masters' murdered body suddenly appears, Sam must use every trick in the book to save her own life, again! And, find a killer who's just pulled the greatest disappearing act of all.
