Synopsis

The first book in an exciting new YA mystery trilogy about a teenage savant on the trail of her family's killer, from the multi-talented Ning Cai, international magic celebrity and author. 

When parkour champion Maxine Schooling wakes from a three-year coma, she has no memory of how her parents and little brother were killed the night she was attacked. Using her new-found photographic memory, she covertly helps her hacker BFF with the police investigation of a savage serial killer on the loose. In her race to track down the Singapore Spectre, Max finds herself embroiled in a conspiracy involving stage illusions, a secret exposé, and a controversial megachurch headed by a powerful man. 

For over a decade, Ning Cai was known as a multi-award-winning stage illusionist and escape artist. After a brief period of retirement, she returned in 2017 as the mentalist Ning: Mind Magic Mistress. Her memoir, Who is Magic Babe Ning?, was shortlisted for the 2016 Singapore Literature Prize.

"Ning Cai conjures a potent blend of heart and humor alongside danger and darkness." 
- Gwenda Bond, author of the Lois Lane and Cirque American series

- E.C. Myers, award-winning author of Fair Coin and The Silence of Six
