Houdini invades Russian fiction

I wasn't able to find a relevant plot description, but according to the mighty Arthur Moses -- who specializes in tracking down Houdini foreign editions -- this new Russian novel features Houdini as a character.

Not much more I can say about this, apart from that it was released in January and can be purchased now at

Spaseeba Arthur!


  1. This is a russian translate of the Jack Blacksmith's book "The Circus Freaks". The novel tells the story about Houdini's diary which helps FBI agent Alex Smirnoff in the investigation of crimes mysterious sect "Children of God".

    1. Fantastic. Thank you so much for the plot summary. Sounds pretty good!
