The Blood Card by Elly Griffiths is the third book in the Magic Men Mystery Series. It opens in 1953 England and the entire nation is preparing for Elizabeth’s coronation.
At the same time televisions have taken England by storm and Max Mephisto and his daughter Ruby will appear in on a live variety show at the Theater Royal that will air simultaneously on televisions across the nation.
Meanwhile, DI Edgar Stephens investigates the death of a fortune teller when news arrives his and Max’s former commander, Colonel Cartwright has died from a knife wound.
When Max hears about it he wishes to help Edgar. However, with his current magic show and practice for the variety show about to begin, it is up to Edgar and his sergeants Emma and Bob to handle things.
Mixed in with the two central mysteries is Emma’s longing to tell Edgar she is in love with him. However Edgar and Ruby are engaged and although she said yes a date for the wedding has not been set.
As with the first two Magic Men Mysteries I enjoyed the third book much the same way. This book is also really good for mystery fans but if you like romance books too, this series will not disappoint on that either.
