The Illusionistby Dinitia Smith
Synopses & Reviews
The Illusionist is the sensuous and haunting tale of Dean Lily, an amateur magician whose arrival in Sparta, New York, upsets the landscape of this small town on the wane. Dean, a master of the sleight of hand, is also a master of seduction and charm — which becomes apparent as he woos and wins the hearts of more than one of Sparta's female citizens.
But the enigmatic newcomer has more to hide than the tricks of his trade — his mysterious identity and his closely guarded privacy arouse suspicion and jealousy — and while he cures Sparta of its midwinter ennui, he also unleashes a destructive force that rocks the foundations of this town to its core. Inspired in part by a true story, The Illusionist is a fiercely erotic novel that thwarts conventions of gender and love.
