Carter Beats the Devil
Glen David Gold
They shook hands yet again, and Houdini settled into the cab. As it pulled away from the curb, Carter waved, and Houdini rolled the window down, yelling 'And remember - from now on, you're Carter the Great'.
"Wholly original...Gold's real aim is to recapture the lost era of the great illusionists and escapologists... and his plot - garish, crude, infernally clever - is precisely honed to the task: it is a triumph of misdirection, a nest of boxes constantly springing fresh surprises."
"A fire-breathing, lion-taming celebration of the golden age of magic... Stupendous yet warm, wonderfully detailed and true to life, Gold conjures the mystery, romance and exuberence of a time before televised entertainment with a verve worthy of any virtuoso performer."
