The Secret Life of Houdini presents a theory that Harry Houdini acted as a spy for the U.S. and British governments. Author Kalush gave a lecture on his theory at the Magic Collectors convention in Virginia. Those in attendance said while the idea sounded far-out at first, Kalush apparently has some pretty strong evidence to support his case.
The Secret Life of Houdini is due for release on October 31, 2006, and can be pre-ordered now on Amazon.com.
This is one I'm definitely look forward to!
UPDATE: Author Bill Kalush informs us this is NOT the final cover art for The Secret Life of Houdini. This is a temporary publisher mock-up used for promotion.
