Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Harry Houdini and Stratton are tasked with the cases that nobody else can solve. It challenges their sense of what is real and what is not. Houdini is a skeptic, while Doyle believes in the unseen. Their diverse viewpoints make solving crime a challenge and often Stratton is put in the middle.

The legendary life of Harry Houdini remains as much of a mystery as his death. Modern magicians marvel at his death-defying performances. His breathtaking escapes and astonishing illusions have never been equaled - or fully understood. Now, in this active investigation, magicians and scientists will try to unlock the secrets and mysteries he took with him to the grave.
