Curses and Cons. Magic and the Mob. Cassel always thought he was an ordinary guy, until he realized his memories were being manipulated by his brothers. Now he knows the truth-he's the most powerful curse worker around. A touch of his hand can transform anything-or anyone-into something else. That was how Lila, the girl he loved, became a white cat. Cassel was tricked into thinking he killed her, when actually he tried to save her. Now that she's human again, he should be overjoyed. Trouble is, Lila's been cursed to love him. And if Lila's love is as phony as Cassel's made-up memories, then he can't believe anything she says or does. When Cassel's oldest brother is murdered, the Feds recruit Cassel to help make sense of the only clue-crime-scene images of a woman in red gloves. But the mob is after Cassel too-they know how valuable he could be to them. Cassel is going to have to stay one step ahead of both sides just to survive.

"Following the revelation that Cassel Sharp is able to transform anyone into something else, living or dead, both the FBI and the mafia-like Worker Families are interested in utilizing his special talents. While secondary characters could be slightly better distinguished, Jesse Eisenberg is a perfect match for the troubled teen Cassel. Unsure where to turn, afraid that he has a black heart and cannot choose to do good, Cassel wavers from confidence in his conning abilities to fear of the lengths his family will go to use him. His good heart is revealed in his refusal to be with the girl he loves because she has been forced to love him. Eisenberg keeps listeners engaged with Cassel's emotional journey. J.M.
