Description

A masterful re-imagining of the lives and loves of Harry Houdini, from the author of the Richard and Judy bestseller The Cellist of Sarajevo.The whole world knows me as the man who killed Harry Houdini, the most famous person on the planet. But there is a secret that no one knows, save for myself and one other person who likely died long ago…This is the spellbinding story of Harry Houdini – his life, his loves, his feats of daring – and misfit Martin Strauss, the man who killed him with an ill-timed punch to the stomach. But in magic, nothing is quite what it seems. Is Strauss the killer of the greatest showman the world has ever seen, or is faking his own death the greatest trick Houdini ever pulled?
