So the young performer who calls himself Harry Houdini must be content, for the time being, working for the internationally renowned Keller, the Dean of American Magicians. But tragedy strikes at the inaugural performance of the masters most astonishing illusion, the Floating Lady, when Kellers levitating assistant plummets abruptly to the ground, apparently to her death. Yet an investigation soon reveals that it is drowning, and no fatal fall, that has killed the unfortunate young lady. An intriguing impossibility to be sure. And it is the great, albeit unsung, Houdini--with the aid of wife Bess and brother Dash--who must solve the deadly conundrum, leading them all into a maze of twisted schemes, grim deceptions, and bloodletting that is no mere stage fakery.
