      First Sentence: When she saw the telephone pole with the yellow plastic base again, Olivia Fletcher slammed on the brakes of her mail truck, bringing it to a skidding halt.FBI Agent Jessica Blackwood’s boredom on stakeout is irrevocably broken by a woman appearing at the door threatening to kill the baby she’s holding. The same day a major earthquake hits the East Coast, and a video is televised of well-known Peter Devon, dead for eight years, predicting the location and date of the earthqua [...]

      Good thriller with our protagonist, now in the FBI, formerly a cop, and raised by a well-known magician, bringing her many skills to bear on a complicated case. The beginning is a tad slow but the book really picks up at the mid-way point once the disparate pieces of the story start to really take off. The main character is a delight; she has so much going for and against her that it's worth reading just to figure out what she is going to do next within the parameters of the story. This plot is [...]

      I have been reading this series from the beginning and was eagerly awaiting the next book featuring Jessica Blackwood. Black Fall definitely didn't disappoint! This time around, Jessica gets involved in a weird convoluted case involving catastrophic predictions from a dead man and riots on the streets of Washington DC. That is just the tip of the iceberg.What I have loved most about this series is Jessica. She comes from a family of magicians and uses her knowledge and her experience to her adva [...]

      Black Fall is the best Jessica Blackwood novel yet! I loved it!! The story captured me right away and I couldn’t put it down. Our favorite magician turned FBI agent is back to solve another seemingly impossible case. After an earthquake hits the east coast, a video appears online of physicist Peter Devon correctly predicting the date and location of the earthquake. Peter has been dead for 8 years. How did he know? Did he know? Who else is involved? Is this a trick? During her investigation, Je [...]

      I thought this series will end here. It was good, but not as awesome as Angel Killer. I'm intrigued how Jessica and the Warlock's battle will end.

    6. Vicki Andrew on said:

      Third book in this series ended with me wanting and hoping for the next book to come out quickly. These are fun books, no deep social message just a fun escape. Enjoy

    7. Misty Lambeth on said:

      Thank you and Andrew Mayne for allowing me to receive this book in the giveaway, it was excellent. I was afraid not having read the first two books I wouldn't pick up on this one, but actually it was easy to slide into to the characters. Definitely a good read!!

    8. Bradley Paul Valentine on said:

      I’m a fan of the Jessica Blackwood books in general. But by the third book, certain issues have me obsessing more on what’s wrong than what’s right. I won’t even bring up that the beats of the plot and character challenges are exactly the same from book to book because, let’s face it, that happens a lot in these types of thrillers. Except I can’t think of another series quite where it’s such a template. Again, that’s not even what I have a problem with. Or I should say I’m not [...]

      An earthquake rocks the east coast and a video surfaces of a man predicting it. One small problem, he's been dead for eight years. To the layman, the act would appear supernatural. Fortunately, the FBI has Jessica Blackwood, magician turned agent. She's tackled other larger than life cases in the previous two books, and quickly dismisses the prediction as a trick. But it's just the first of many, and she's the only one equipped to figure out what is going on and who could be behind it.Some event [...]

      I won a copy of Black Fall from a Giveaway.I've been reading this series from the start and always felt the premise had amazing potential. My issues had always been that the bizarre and stupendous tricks poised to stump authorities in the previous novels, forcing Jessica Blackwood's involvement in the cases were generally too unbelievable to believe.Also, I never really took to Jessica. I don't hate her or dislike her, I just don't admire her. Despite her unconventional life as the granddaughte [...]

    11. J.D. Cunegan on said:

      Andrew Mayne ups the ante with each Jessica Blackwood book, and the series' third installment -- Black Fall -- is no exception. This novel throws natural disasters, government distrust, conspiracy, and religious cults at the reader, weaving a tale that zigs, zags, and ultimately ties into the previous installments in a satisfying way.By combining elements of mystery with magic -- Mayne is a magician himself, as is protagonist Jessica -- Mayne is able to do things few others in the genre can. The [...]

      Getting better and betterI have read all 3 Jessica Blackwood novels in a row and they keep getting better and more suspenseful, I can't wait for the next one! Jessica Blackwood is a strange but likeable character, an anti-hero in the style of Bruce Willis' John McClane in Die Hard - the person who doesn't really want to be there and doesn't want the spot light, yet is just that much smarter than everyone else, they don't have a choice if they want to fight and ultimately catch the bad guys. The [...]

    13. Matt Walton on said:

      Let's be honest. If you're thinking about buying Black Fall, you've probably read Angel Killer and Name of the Devil. If this is you, my abridged review is that it's more of that greatness, except with the improvement that can only come from an author gaining more experience from writing. My question for you is why are you reading this review instead of the book? For my full review, read on.Andrew Mayne has a fantastic writing style that rather than starting with pages upon pages of exposition, [...]

      I was looking forward to again read about Magician/FBI Agent Jessica Blackwood. I just love these books and this is another great one.Jessica is the daughter of two famous magicians and knows all the tricks of the trade. That is why she is so good at solving some of the toughest cases coming throughThe Warlock who was in the previous two books, is locked in prison. So, when a whole town disappears, she knows its not him.Investigating into the case with her friends, she thinks a cult is the one b [...]

    15. Steve on said:

      Andrew Mayne's third Jessica Blackwood novel shows us how a mystery series can keep the reader's attention throughout a trilogy. The adventure and mystery that the title character finds herself in this time is centered on a politically charged issue that leads to a life or death race against time.Mayne's ability to keep the reader riveted from the first page to the last is on display throughout. I literally couldn't put this one down. It came out on Tuesday morning and needed a new novel to read [...]

    16. Keith Curran on said:

      AGAIN, IT JUST STOPS!This, the most convoluted of the series, again does not end. It also just stops. No explanations. No answers. No last, huge, endgame trick, foiled. Just "everyone with the answers is gone". The author is a genius, his prose is stark and amusing. But, just when he needed to up his game, he downed it. I still loved reading it, but in the last ten pages, he rushed to unsatisfying conclusions. Why?

    17. Cynthia Hunt on said:

      I keep thinking there's no way the next Jessica Blackwood can be as good as the last, but Andrew Mayne keeps proving me wrong. You can't put Black Fall down once you start reading. The action, the suspense, and Blackwood's determination to figure out how each illusion was created and your own to figure out how she figures it out pushes you forward, page after page. It's hard not to put in spoilers, but this book is well worth the reading, and if you haven't read the first two books in this serie [...]

      Great page turnerUnfortunately I’ve come to the end of the road in this series. Well written, great character development and plenty of plot twists! I’m sure more are coming, as the ending is open and the issue of a certain individual is unfinished. All three of these books would make great movies. Highly recommended.

    19. Bronwyn on said:

      Could not put it down!Even though there was a lot of brutality in the story, it isn't that far from our current news. It is easy to see how a few people can influence groups. Misdirection and fake news can be overcome with analysis and intelligence. Very entertaining and thought provoking read.

    20. Sandy on said:

      I'm not a huge fan of magic, but I really enjoy the Jessica Blackwood series. Mayne does a fantastic job of opening the reader's eyes to magic, integrating parts of the craft into this series, and has deepened my appreciation for the art. Jessica is an engaging character, and the story is well crafted, fresh, and kept me interested and curious throughout.

    21. Kathleen Gray on said:

      There's an awful lot going on here= maybe too much-but it makes for a page turner where you're not always sure what's going to happen. I'd not read Mayne or the Jessica Blackwood novels before (thanks Edelweiss for the ARC) but even though I didn't have the back story, I didn't have any problem leaping in and enjoying the ride. I like the concept of an illusionist working for FBI and figuring out what's up. Sometimes that strayed into the slightly more unrealistic than I would have liked but May [...]

      The warlock is back?What happens when you use information cruise missiles to turn our country upside down? Find out as Jessica finds herself in the middle of yet another crazy plot.

    23. Christine on said:

      3.5. I enjoyed this book. My only objection is that Agent Blackwood at times makes really bad decisions. Again, this book wrapped up really quickly for me. A lot of tension and BOOM, it’s over, without any drama.

    24. Hugh Butler on said:

      Really great heroineShe's fierce and fun and funny, smart and skilled and dedicated beyond our fondest hopes but we will never doubt or betray her for she will save the planetBecause she can

    25. Darlene Bonci on said:

      Waiting eagerly for the next Jessica Blackwood novelI just read all three novels one after the other. Very entertaining. Smart, amusing, humble heroine and clever story lines. Hope there are more coming.

    26. Peggy Kohler on said:

      After reading "The Naturalist" and "Angel Killer" I found this one lacked the excitement, intrigue and creativity of the previous two. In fact, parts were rather boring. Also, not enough Damian!!Disappointed.

    27. Sara Rhodes on said:

      This was pretty good except I realized when I was three quarters the way through, it is the 3rd in a series!! I thought it was the 1st in a series dang it. But if you like a good fast paced fun mystery, read his 1st book and read this one 3rd like I should have done!!

    28. Kenny Roderick on said:

      Great RideMayne has another winner here - a fast thriller with enough guessing to keep tensions tight. I appreciated the absence of family drama in relation to the last novel, kept the plot clear.
