Harry Houdini-stage magician, spiritualist debunker, illusionist, pulp hero?
Blurring the lines between history and fantasy comes "Houdini and the Spear of Destiny", a tale of two-fisted pulp that teams the legendary magician with his real life friend Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes, for an action-packed tale of occult adventure. While investigating a spiritualist medium, the daring duo encounter the infamous Aleister Crowley, who hopes to avoid a world-wide calamity by resting control of the legendary Spear of Destiny, which pierced Christ's side at the Crucifixion, and can give its owner power over the entire world!
Now the race is on for this potentially powerful artifact. To find it and outwit Crowley, it will take every skill in Houdini's amazing bag of tricks!
