Early Review: Club Deception by Sarah Skilton

Jul 8, 2017

A glamorous romp through the scandals and secrets of LA's most exclusive fictional magician's society, CLUB DECEPTION.

Claire Fredericksson is the beating heart of CLUB DECEPTION, LA's most exclusive magician's society. She's the Queen Bee of Magician WAGs (Wives and Girlfriends), and the genius behind her philandering husband Jonathan's award-winning magic show. Claire's life is upended by the arrival of two new women to the closed group of 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 erupts 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, and close-up card handlers, this novel weaves a tale of murder, fame, and many, many illusions.



Club Deception is a work of illusory goodness. Skilton caters to readers with an interesting, in depth description of tricks and lingo. The Club Deception world of magicians is brought to life in a cloud of intrigue and the undiscovered.  This was a slow read for me, but as the characters began to reveal themselves I found the pace did not bother me. I wish the intensity of the prologue had been felt throughout the story instead of in the beginning and at the end. That being said, Claire's character was fantastic!  She was intelligent and gave depth to the story.  I look forward to reading more from Sarah Skilton.
