This is a hardback -- Throughout Houdini's career, there was a fascination with death as the one inescapable bond. No man risked death so daringly, no man was so pursued by its shdaow. He exposed mediums who claimed to communicate with the dead, yet prayed that one would be genuine. This book reveals secrets to some of Houdinin's most puzzling tricks and includes extensive anotated biography that reviews all of the important literature on the man and his magic.
