Review:

Inside this beautifully designed (by Deborah Kerner) package of shaded pages and unusual fonts is a gorgeously written thriller about perception and perversity in a city famous for its unusual takes on both. Photographer Kay Farrow prowls the streets of San Francisco by night, because she's an achromat: she suffers from total color blindness, a much more serious (and much rarer) condition than the red-green variety. But Kay's affliction has also enhanced her artistic talent: she takes terrific black and white pictures that bounce off gallery walls and into books. The murder and mutilation of a young male street hustler she has become close to while shooting for a new book changes Kay's nocturnal roamings into a search for truth and justice. And the extraordinarily gifted David Hunt (who under his real name, William Bayer, wrote those Janek novels--Switch, Wallflower, Mirror Maze--which became TV movies starring Richard Crenna) fills his wonderful book with details of everything from magic and martial arts to bread-making.

From the Publisher:

"The Magician's Tale is truly original -- atmospheric, seductively written, and compellingly suspenseful."
-- Richard North Patterson
