Death threats became an everyday occurence, but the group would pose an even greater danger to Houdini's legacy.
As exciting as any good thriller, the book traces the art of the Master Magician's life from desperate poverty to worldwide legend and initiates the listner into the arcane world of professioanl magic. Z38
