Description:
Kelly s mesmerizing reimagining shines a light on the kind of love that burns strong even after death. "People" A richly lyrical and thought-provoking novel with closing twists that feel as impossible, inevitable, and satisfying as magical, in short as one of Houdini's own illusions. "Publishers Weekly" (starred review) Before escape artist Harry Houdini died, he vowed he would find a way to speak to his beloved wife Bess from beyond the grave using a coded message known only to the two of them. When a widowed Bess begins seeing this code in seemingly impossible places, it becomes clear that Harry has an urgent message to convey. Unlocking the puzzle will set Bess on a course back through the pair s extraordinary romance, which swept the illusionist and his bride from the beaches of Coney Island, to the palaces of Budapest, to the back lots of Hollywood. When the mystery finally leads Bess to the doorstep of a mysterious young photographer, she realizes that her husband s magic may have been more than just illusion. In surprising turns that weave through the uncertain days of the dawn of the twentieth century and continue into the dazzling 1920s, "Mrs. Houdini" is a thrilling tale that will take you deep into the heart of one of history s greatest love stories asking what drives people to believe in something bigger than themselves even as it reveals the famous magician s most remarkable feat of all."
