The Conductor of Illusions

  • The Conductor of Illusions is a well-composed symphony of words. Arditi writes with compassion for his tormented character and we see the inner workings of not only Kandilis’ career, but of his mind. We are left to wonder if we should be rooting for his success or demise. A scrupulously researched and complex story that keeps you riveted…A great read.”—Andrew Neiderman, author of The Devil’s Advocate and the V.C. Andrews franchise
