Cover art for The Witch of Lime Street

Thanks to Crown Publishing and author David Jaher, today I'm excited to reveal the cover art for David's upcoming book, The Witch of Lime Street: Séance, Seduction, and Houdini in the Spirit World. This is the first major book to cover Houdini and Margery and their famous encounters. It will be released on October 6, 2015.

History comes alive in this textured account of the rivalry between Harry Houdini and the so called "witch of Lime street," whose iconic lives intersected at a time when science was on the verge of embracing the paranormal.

Screenwriter David Jaher's extraordinary debut centers on the ensuing showdown between the world's greatest unmasker of charlatans and the nation's most credible spirit medium. The Witch of Lime Street, the first book to capture their electric public rivalry, returns us to an oft-mythologized era to deepen our understanding of its history, all while igniting our imagination and engaging with the timeless question: is there life after death?

The Witch of Lime Street: Séance, Seduction, and Houdini in the Spirit World can be pre-ordered now in hardcover, audiobook, and for the Kindle at (U.S.) and (UK).
