Learn the true stories of Houdini – the American self-liberator, Europe’s eclipsing sensation, the world’s handcuff king, exposer of fraud, original prison-breaker, and master magician. Long after his death, Houdini continues to inspire generations of children who dare to dream of the impossible. Bill Pack goes beyond the myth and brings to life the true story of this American icon, including the story of his death, and the revelation of Houdini’s baffling magic and escapes.
