With wit, charm, and historical detail, multiple award winner Rhys Bowen makes early twentieth century New York come vividly to life in The Last Illusion.

Irish immigrant and PI Molly Murphy is thrilled to have a ticket to see the illusionists that are all the rage. Indeed, Harry Houdini himself has returned from Europe for a brief run on Broadway. But Houdini can''t even take the stage when, to the crowd''s shock, the opening act saws into his assistant-for real.

The stunned performer accuses Houdini of tampering with his equipment, and he''s not the only one critical of "The King of Handcuffs" who, by raising the stakes in his shows, has put other acts out of business. With everyone on edge, Houdini''s wife hires Molly as an investigator and bodyguard...but how can she protect a man who risks his life every night?

RHYS BOWEN is the New York Times bestselling author of the Anthony Award- and Agatha Award-winning Molly Murphy mysteries, the Edgar Award-nominated Evan Evans series, the Royal Spyness series, and several stand-alone novels including In Farleigh Field. Born in England, she lives in San Rafael, CA.
