Mystery

Looking for a good mystery? Then look no further than Daniel Stashower's THE FLOATING LADY MURDER which delivers a great mystery filled with action and intrigue. THE FLOATING LADY MURDER begins with a magician performing a seemingly impossible feat. A young woman floating tens of feet in the air, but something happens that causes her to fall to her death. Did she die from the fall or was there another cause? As you read you will discover that the woman may have already drowned...but what does this mean for the magician? Is this a murder or an accident?

Daniel Stashower does a terrific job of setting the scene. He builds the suspense to the point where you can literally hear the scary music before a particularly grueling part. Though the crime seems like it is unreal, you will find that the explanation itself is fascinating.

THE FLOATING LADY MURDER is a perfect addition to the Harry Houdini Mystery series.

SUMMARY

Struggling young performer Harry Houdini is working for the renowned Kellar "Dean of American Magicians" in turn-of the-century New York. When his master's astonishing Floating Lady illusion goes horribly wrong, Houdini, along with his wife Bess and brother Dash, must solve the deadly conundrum and figure out how the young lady died from drowning rather than a fatal fall... 

Another thrilling title in the Harry Houdini Mysteries series from award-winning author Daniel Stashower!
