The most daring paranormal thriller series of the last decade becomes a legal thriller in Smoke and Mirrors! Serial killer Adam Genblade is on trial for the murders that ravaged Coral Beach last September, but public perception of his guilt begins to waver when murders fitting the exact same M.O. are committed while he is still behind bars. Is this the work of a copycat killer… or is the reality of Genblade’s guilt all just a magician’s trick of smoke and mirrors?
