Club Deception

Club Deception

A sexy, glamorous romp through the scandals, secrets and even murder in Los Angeles’ most exclusive magician’s society.

Welcome to Club Deception where nothing is what it seems …and love may be the most dangerous illusion of all.

Claire Fredericksson is the beating heart of Club Deception, LA’s most exclusive society of magicians. She’s the Queen Bee of Magician WAGs (“Wives and Girlfriends”), and the real genius behind her philandering husband Jonathan’s award-winning magic show, but her debilitating stage fright has kept her out of the limelight. Until Claire’s life is upended by the arrival of two new women to the closed group of magicians’ wives- Jessica, a young trophy wife with a secret; and Kaimi, an art expert looking for the long- lost Erdnase papers by posing as a girlfriend. When a magician rivalry and a stolen routine erupt into murder, the women must uncover the truth and set things right for the men they love. With a cast of endurance experts, Vegas stage stars, close-up card handlers and a pick-up artist or two this glamorous novel weaves a tale of murder and fame, and many, many illusions.
