A strange occurrence in a small magic shop sets into motion a series of events that leads to the impossible. After all, it’s no easy task to return from the grave—even for Houdini. But with the help of a few hand-selected if unwitting accomplices and the guidance of a secret notebook penned years ago, the impossible could become reality. And when modern science finally catches up to Houdini’s vision, the legendary magician who once escaped from ropes, handcuffs and straightjackets, may finally escape the bonds of death. To help him accomplish this, however, the Great Houdini will have to rely on the person who doubts him the most.
The author says, "I’ve tried to make all the historical references as accurate as possible, so Houdini buffs should be happy to see that connection and to explore the world of ‘what would happen if Houdini returned, as promised, to this life?’"
Houdini's Return: The Metamorphosis of Ehrich Weiss is available at Amazon.com.
UPDATE: Now available in a print edition.
