I don't think I've ever read a book with more twists than a plate of rotini. The story's antagonist is a magician/illusionist, and every misdirection that he produces ends up in another twist to the story. You don't know what to believe or how it's going to end, until the last word you read. Excellent storytelling and character development. Teaches you a lot about illusion, too.
