Summary
"Anna Van Housen has a secret. A gifted illusionist, Anna assists her mother, renowned medium Marguerite Van Housen, in her stage show and séances, easily navigating the underground world of magicians, mediums, and mentalists in 1920's New York. As the illegitimate daughter of Harry Houdini--or so Marguerite claims--sleight of hand illusions have never been a challenge for Anna. The real trick is keeping her true gifts secret from her opportunistic mother: because while Marguerite's own powers may be a sham, Anna actually can sense people's feelings and foretell the future. But as Anna's powers intensify, she experiences frightening visions that lead her to explore the abilities she's tried so long to hide. And when a mysterious young man moves into the flat downstairs, introducing Anna to a society that studies people with gifts like hers, she begins to wonder if there's more to life than keeping secrets"--Page [4] of cover
