During Yuletide 1911, a brutal Midtown murder shocks the denizens of New York City. After a mutual friend is wrongly accused of being the killer, young sleuth Nate Fuller, along with his famous mentor Harry Houdini, is determined to solve the case. For starters, Houdini and Nate are certain their friend has been framed. But why? By whom? And how can they save him?
In their new adventure, old New York's acclaimed detecting duo brave the rough-and-tumble streets of the Lower East Side, where colorful, conniving characters abound, and the only thing certain is danger every step of the way.
Hearing the scream, Nate flew down the back stairs and dashed into the kitchen, expecting to find Marina bleeding uncontrollably. Or on the floor with a broken bone sticking out of her skin. Something ghastly and life-threatening.
