Sleight of Hand PDF Þ Sleight of Epub /

Gregarious Vegas entertainer Wally Lederer hasn't always enjoyed the attention of center stage something he learned about himself over thirty years ago when he was in the slammer serving time for picking pockets He claims he's turned his life around and his lucrative and legitimate showbiz career seems to support this But will the police believe he's a changed man now that Jay Wilkins a childhood friend is accusing him of stealing a valuable artifact? More important does respected attorney Barbara Holloway believe him when he pleads his case to her? Wally swears he's innocent There's no way he would jeopardize years of hard work for the fleeting thrill of minor deception But when Jay is found murdered Barbara knows Wally is in serious trouble the police have named him as their prime suspectBarbara begins to dig up the dirt and is shocked to learn that Jay's wife is now missing and that Jay himself was far from being the upstanding businessman he claimed to be Before long new evidence points toward an unlikely killer and Barbara must decide if protecting her client by revealing the truth will destroy another life she means to save

    Wally Lederer had been accused and had served time in jail for theft Five years later he was freed and vowed to never go back to his old stealing ways He promised his wife he'd change because if he failed Meg would readily divorce him Over the years he'd kept to his promise and lived a good clean life as an entertainer One day he chanced upon an old friend Jay Wilkins and the two had a drink in his friend's home Things didn't go well between the two when Jay accused Wally of stealing his golden horse statue So he asked for his friend Frank Holloway's help about this matter but the old man refused said that he no longer practiced criminal defense His daughter Barbara stepped in When they were about to prove Wally's innocence Jay Wilkins was soon found dead murdered And every finger pointed to Wally given his history and recent fight with the victim Was Wally guilty as charged? Or not?I've read a couple of Barbara Holloway novels before and as always the author Kate Wilhelm reminds me of my favorite author Sidney Sheldon Her novels always makes my brain work like that of a CSI detective I tend to analyze every detail doubt every character look for loopholes determine the suspect and in the end be surprised with the twists Somehow I was able to easily identify with Barbara Holloway the lawyer because she strive hard to help innocent people and uphold their interests and integrity Her relationship with her father was also something to look forward to Wally on the other hand was commendable for his determination to change I liked that he was able to prove that not all ex convicts were destined to go back to prison over and over againBut than that I was moved by the grace directness and humor of Kate Wilhelm's writing and world building Sleight of Hand is another suspense mystery that's sure to make you think deeper and deeper as you enjoy devouring the pages from start to finish
