Book- Houdini Unbound: Espionage in Russia
It’s 1903; America is besieged by a rapacious Russia and a power-mad Germany.
President Theodore Roosevelt has just learned that the Russians have stolen the U.S. diplomatic code, and that the Germans have a nest of spies in the Russian royal court.
Into this maelstrom steps the young and innocent Harry Houdini.
His brilliant illusions have convinced Nicholas and Alexandra, the Russian royals, that he has genuine magical powers.
When they invite Harry and his wife Bess to become their spiritual advisers, Roosevelt enlists Houdini as a spy for the U.S.A.
Suddenly, Houdini is performing on a world scale, and the stakes are much higher than even his own life: the life of his wife and the peace of the world hang in the balance.
This story, never told before, is "based" on true events.
