"Jonathan Creek is the genius behind magician Adam Klaus' stage act. He hides his brilliant mind behind a shaggy unassuming appearance, but he has been found out - by a pushy, investigative journalist Madeline Magellan. The second series begins on Halloween when a best-selling author is killed by a ghost. Then Jonathan and Maddy ponder if a man has the power to stop time, before investigating the impossible murder of a woman, killed by a man who committed suicide a few weeks earlier." -- Back cover.
