Houdini's rise from obscure dime-museum performer to the brightest star of "Big Time" is only part of Kellock's story. His personality and his private life are fully as fascinating and romantic as his public career. Kellock's intimate account is based on the recollections and document of Beatrice Houdini, his wife and only person party to all his secrets.
