THE FLOATING LADY MURDERS
A Harry Houdini Mystery
Name of Detective:
Theodore "Dash" Hardeen, my young brother
Appleton, Wisconsin. Pay no attention to those who say I was born in Budapest, Hungary. I am as American as you are.
Justly-celebrated self-liberator and eclipsing sensation of the world stage.
How did you get involved in sleuthing?:
As the world's foremost conjuror and escape artist, I am naturally fond of puzzles.
Obdurate theatrical managers and booking agents.
None, I am entirely unique and original, although in matters of detection I am partial to the methods of Mr. Sherlock Holmes.
My striking good looks and Adonis-like physique -- or would it be considered immodest to say so?
My beloved wife Bess is the one bond from which I shall never attempt to escape.
"Let me say that in a long life which has touched every side of humanity, Houdini is far and away the most curious and intriguing character whom I have ever encountered. I have met better men, and I have certainly met very many worse ones, but I have never met a man who had such strange contrasts in his nature, and such remarkable reserves of physical and mental courage." -- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
