Description
Set in 1878, this winner of Britain's James Tait Black Award is a haunting novel about two rival stage magicians. A masterpiece of illusion and storytelling magic, this fiercely compelling tale reads like The Alienist interpreted by Robertson Davies. Priest ventures beyond the boundaries of rational belief to illuminate human nature in its most altered states.--Christopher Fowler, Time Out.

In 1878, two young stage magicians clash in the dark during the course of a fraudulent séance. From this moment on, their lives become webs of deceit and revelation as they vie to outwit and expose each other.

Their rivalry will take them to the peaks of their careers—but with terrible consequences. In the course of pursuing each other's ruin, they will deploy all the deception their magician's craft can command, the highest misdirection and the darkest science. Blood will be spilled, but it will not be enough. In the end, their legacy will pass on for generations to descendants who must, for their sanity's sake, untangle their puzzle.
