Epigram Books Fiction Prize 2016 Longlist

Synopsis


The first book in an exciting new YA mystery trilogy about a teenage savant on the trail of her family's killer, from the multi-talented Ning Cai, international magic celebrity and author.

When parkour champion Maxine Schooling wakes from a three-year coma, she has no memory of how her parents and little brother were killed the night she was attacked. Using her new-found photographic memory, she covertly helps her hacker BFF with the police investigation of a savage serial killer on the loose. In her race to track down the Singapore Spectre, Max finds herself embroiled in a conspiracy involving stage illusions, a secret exposé, and a controversial megachurch headed by a powerful man.

For over a decade, Ning Cai was known as a multi-award-winning stage illusionist and escape artist. After a brief period of retirement, she returned in 2017 as the mentalist Ning: Mind Magic Mistress. Her memoir, Who is Magic Babe Ning?, was shortlisted for the 2016 Singapore Literature Prize.

Praises

"Ning Cai is a wonder."
- Neil Gaiman, internationally celebrated author of The Sandman and The Ocean at the End of the Lane

"A fast-paced YA thriller, packed with mystery, magic and a touch of romance."
- Lang Leav, bestselling author of Sad Girls and Sea of Strangers

"Ning Cai conjures a potent blend of heart and humor alongside danger and darkness."
- Gwenda Bond, author of the Lois Lane and Cirque American series

"Good mystery stories and magic tricks both rely on deft hands, artful distraction, charming onstage characters, and a flashy finish that leaves you wondering how the author pulled it all off-and Ning Cai puts on a great show!"
- E.C. Myers, award-winning author of Fair Coin and The Silence of Six
