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

now it seems less likely, but I thought, originally, that this would be a book I would finish on Halloween Night...which would fit in perfectly with the Houdini angle; I peeked at a small section near the end of the book only to confirm that it deals wit Houdini's final fate, and it does (a fate I aready knew). meanwhile, Mina's final status as either Real Deal Medium of the Ages (aka Witch of Lime Street), or Big Fake Signifying Nothing is still up in the air. if she ultimately went down in history as a charlatan...well, all I can say is, she puts on a damn good show!
