Strained. I tried very hard to suspend disbelief while reading Brad Meltzer’s novel titled, The Escape Artist. Whether it was my failure to cut Meltzer slack or his straining credulity at almost every key plot turn, the outcome was my reading a novel that I never came to enjoy. On the positive side, protagonist Nola Brown was a very interesting character. The Houdini connection was fascinating. Those two elements were not sufficient for me to overcome a plot that strained logical reasoning multiple times.
Rating: Two-star (I didn’t like it)
