The Houdini Inheritance by Emma Carroll

Today sees the release of The Houdini Inheritance by Emma Carroll. Aimed at young readers, the book has a nice premise and a nice cover. This is one I'll be adding to my shelf of Houdini fiction.
The English seaside, 1920s

A world famous escape artist . . .
A suitcase full of secrets . . .
And a death-defying stunt . . .

When Harry Houdini comes to visit the seaside town of Sidford-on-Sea, Glory and her friend Dennis are first in-line to see him. He is there to perform a daring trick: he will jump off the town pier in chains, pitching himself into the water below. But when Glory outsmarts the infamous Houdini, she is suddenly sucked into his world, and finds herself tasked with looking after his precious trunk - the one that contains all his secrets.

With Houdini in danger, Glory and Dennis are thrown deep into an adventure that takes them all the way to Coney Island in America, and the dark underbelly of its amusement parks . . .

Purchase The Houdini Inheritance at and Author Emma Carroll is on a UK book tour. Below is a list of stops. You can also follow her on Instagram.

How do you feel about Houdini fiction? Is it harmless fun that honors Houdini? Or does it further muddy the facts of Houdini's life? I've thrown this question out as a POLL on my Patreon.
