The Ambitious Card is the first book in the series focusing on the magician Eli Marks. The book sees a series of psychics being murdered and Eli is one of the prime suspects. It doesn’t help matters when the beautiful psychic that he has been seeing ends up as the next target of the killer, and that he is also scheduled to die with her. To expose the true killer and keep everyone safe, Eli must use every trick up his sleeve to reveal the killer before it’s too late.

The series continues with The Bullet Catch which sees Eli decide to head to his high school reunion. He knows he shouldn’t, but he does anyway and soon becomes entangled in two deadly encounters with his former classmates. The first one sees a fatal mugging that leaves his old crush’s husband dead. The second is when a classmate who is know a Hollywood movie star has fears about attempting the Bullet Catch in an upcoming movie and goes to Eli for help. Juggling these two situations and keeping himself safe may be the greatest trick Eli has ever performed – if he can pull it off.
