Summary
Jonathan Creek is a master of illusion. Deviser of magic, creator of miracles, Jonathan creates spectacular stage stunts from his home ? a mysterious windmill in the heart of the country. His brilliant analytical mind penetrates the darkest corners and cracks the trickiest of puzzles. But no showman, he lurks backstage while his boss Adam Faust steps in the limelight. Then Jonathan meets unorthodox crime journalist Maddy Magellan, who soon discovers another use for his extraordinary talent ? solving murder by magic. The hottest partnership since Mulder and Scully, Jonathan and Maddy investigate crimes which seem to have no rational explanation. He is a bit of a nerd but he also a bit of a quick-witted genius. Maddy Magellan is an investigative crime writer, and the pair join forces to solve seemingly impossible crimes. There?s a fair element of the Columbo in here ? how did-they-do-it as opposed to whodunit ? but with plenty of twists, so it?s never quite that simple

Contents
  • The Wrestler's Tomb : A celebrated artist has been killed, with a beautiful model bound and gagged by his side. The police are baffled ? so it is just as well that Jonathan Creek accidentally spears Maddy?s hand with a cocktail stick ... Jack in the Box : Veteran comedian Jack Holiday has committed suicide. But how did a man with crippling arthritis manage to hold a gun to his head? And how was Jonathan duped into another of Maddy?s "grisly murder investigations"? -- The Reconstituted Corpse : A plastic surgeon is murdered. The police suspect Zola Zbzewski, his ex-lover who is publicizing her book on how he gave her the perfect body. But then Zola is found dead in baffling circumstances ... No Trace of Tracey : A teenage girl disappears at the mansion of ?70s rock god Roy Pilgrim. In the bizarre world of former rock legends, Jonathan seems a lot happier than Maddy; but then she was always more of a Percy Sledge girl. -- The House of Monkeys : Elliot Strange?s husband has been murdered ? in a locked room with bars on the windows ? and the chief suspect is a gorilla! Cue Jonathan and Maddy ..
