This week we chat with the author of the Eli Marks Mystery Series, John Gaspard. The fourth book in this series, "The Linking Rings" finds our magician sleuth in London, England on what was supposed to be a vacation. But on his first night at The Magic Circle, he finds himself trying to help his uncle out of a murder that takes place on the stage at the venerable Magic Circle. In this podcast, John summarizes the first three books to bring you up to date if you are not familiar with the series. Also, part way through the podcast, professional voice-over personality, Jim Cunningham, reads a snippet from the first chapter of the book.
