Doyle HP Lovecraft And Harry Houdini But HP Lovecraft and Harry Houdini but pursuit of the mystery and personal limits and demons felt right on The basis of the story was exciting and the strings of the mystery were satisfactorily tied I even loved the endingredemption comes in so many forms and this story we have each character finding their own redemptionIt s a great mystery and historical account of attitudes and feelings from turn of the century New York and one that I highly recommend to any mysteryliterary fan If Stephenie Meyer and Dan Brown had a baby that baby would have grown up into Thomas Wheeler and it would have written this book The writing is clunky and in places it s absolutely nonsensical The plot is difficult to follow which is a shame because I think it could have been fantastic The whole time I was reading it I ust kept thinking it was so close yet so unbelievably far away My chief issue with the novel was the treatment of the female characters Each time a woman is introduced to the novel or even to a scene her breasts are mentioned I m not kidding it s got to be 99% of the time Instead of using her legendary skills to distract hospital guards Marie uses her body and pretends to be a prostitute Naturally Marie was the love interest of than one member of the Arcanum Not one female character escaped being sexualized not even Houdini s wife who was probably my favorite Every time Marie was sassy or took initiative it felt completely pasted S of deceptively disparate but decidedly connected murders And as he calls upon the scattered members of the Arcanum for aid he also finds himself embroiled in a story of war as old as time itself Not of a struggle between countries but between darkness and lightPeopled with the twentieth century’s most famous and infamous figures here is an extraordinary tale in which the stakes go beyond the realm of humankind into the divine From the Hardcover editi.
