Reviews

"Absorbing and prodigiously researched . . . Houdini's and Conan Doyle's life stories, together and separately, have been told before, but Masters of Mystery is a worthy addition to the long shelf of existing work about these remarkable men." --Seattle Times"Veteran celebrity biographer Sandford brings together two fierce yet mutually respectful antagonists on the subject of spiritualism...A fascinating account of an unlikely relationship." --Kirkus Reviews"Rivetingly chronicles the eternal persistence of humbug, chicanery and that inextinguishable human trait we call 'hope.'" --Arthur Magida, author of The Nazi S ance"A must read... a fascinating insight into Houdini's daily life and his unique relationship with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle... provided a great amount of new relevant historical facts and details that have been heretofore hidden from Houdini followers... Sandford's reverse engineering of Houdini's thought process makes the reader feel they are in the company of the Houdini and his contemporaries... I couldn't put the book down." --Geno Munari, President, Houdini Picture Corporation, Houdini, Houdini Magic.
