|Plot Summary of Marked by Magic|
Why did Mark Songis hand his wife Jane the glass with the bloodstain on it? Why did he take the canister from the porch and put it back into the closet? Who was in the car that parked across the road almost every day and watched the house? Why were the locks changed so many times? Who was the lady in the market at the corner of their street that wrote on Jane's finger with a magic marker each and every time she went in to buy groceries? Was it all connected to each other and her brother, Mitch Mistols, how did he fit in? What was the continuing silence that Mark had? Yet, to her he talked. To the lady, Maria, at the market he conversed. She wasn't sure if it was an affair, but they talked a lot...an awful lot about things that he wouldn't tell Jane about. Then it was her turn and she meets Mitchell Andrews. Mark will not give Jane a divorce. Then there was the dead body of one young, teenage girl found in the creek a mile behind their home. She had been murdered. Then there were two cars that watched the house every day...
