Eli Gottlieb's suspenseful second novel looks intensely at the bonds of male friendship. Hailed as "the work of a master" (Denver Post) and "a brilliant work of art" (Charlotte Observer), Now You See Him is propelled by its stark, lucid language and skillfully drawn characters. Nick's grief and confusion are genuinely moving, and readers will easily sympathize with his long-suffering wife and family. Though the Toronto Globe and Mail and the Vancouver Sun thought the novel overwritten and predictable in places and Entertainment Weekly claimed it devolved into the realm of the soap opera toward the end, most critics praised it as a poignant and compelling account of lives torn apart by secrets, lies, and madness.
