Was their perfect marriage their greatest illusion?
It is 1929, the height of the Spiritualist frenzy. Houdini, the world’s first Superstar, has been dead two years – yet surely if anyone can break through from the Other Side, it’s Harry. When his beloved wife, Bess, hints that he already has, she is accused of rigging the séance.
Broke, broken and hounded by the press, she flees to a private sanitarium. Does she really believe her husband can reach out to her from the Beyond, or, haunted by her own hallucinations, can she even tell the difference? And most important of all, can she survive Life after Harry?
