Description
"An elaborate, fun, fast-paced murder mystery."-- Kirkus Reviews Scooter King understands illusions. In the midst of the Roaring Twenties, he performs them behind the scenes at his mother's séances, giving the impression that Madam King communicates with the dead. Scooter also admires Harry Houdini and can hardly wait to see the famed magician escape from his razzle-dazzle Burmese Torture Tank. But when Scooter stumbles upon a dead body while visiting Houdini's tank, it's no illusion. Who could the murderer be? As Scooter sets out to unmask the killer, the mysterious worlds of mediums, séances, and magic are revealed. . . . "Mystery lovers will get a kick out of this rollicking whodunit featuring swashbuckling soothsayers, outlandish séances, magic tricks and more. . . . As if staging a magic show of his own, Lawrence builds suspense and adds plot twists right up until the climactic conclusion." --Publishers Weekly
