The Witch of Lime Street: Seance, Seduction, and Houdini in the Spirit World - David Jaher

I sit here almost hoping that Mina is not revealed, by Houdini or anyone else, to be a fraud. I really don't know how this true story ends, so I'm almost hoping that, at worst, it's never really proven one way or another, even if things end with a high suspicion that it was all a fabulously-orchestrated hoax. Mina's credibility has held together so far--I love her, fraud or not--but that guy Houdini...he was no slouch either. great book!
