Grande spettacolo di magia, questa sera a New York, con un trio di illusionisti guidato nientemeno che dal fenomenale Houdini. Ma anche nel numero più collaudato qualcosa non quadra, se la ragazza lancia un grido raccapricciante e scorre il sangue. Perché il sensazionale Scarpelli la sta davvero segando a metà. I primi sospetti gravano su di lui, che invece accusa il più famoso collega di avergli manomesso l'attrezzatura. In sala tra il pubblico, la detective privata Molly Murphy è rimasta sconvolta come tutti i presenti, e all'orrore si aggiunge la sorpresa quando la moglie del "re degli escapisti" la ingaggia per proteggere il marito. Intanto, però, la vittima non si trova in nessun ospedale, e anche il sublime Scarpelli è sparito... Non c'è trucco, non c'è inganno? Tutt'altro. Sarà un arduo compito per Molly discernere tra cosa è reale e cosa non lo è, in quel mondo di specchi in cui perfino la morte potrebbe essere una tragica illusione.

Description :  Un invito a un matrimonio in Transilvania. Prospettiva non proprio allettante per lady Georgiana Rannoch, ma certo sempre meglio che dover sopportare il fratello e la cognata in visita a Londra. E poi, a chiederle questo favore è stata nientemeno che la regina in persona. Trentaquattresima in linea di discendenza per la successione al trono, e anche la più squattrinata ereditiera d'Inghilterra, Georgiana rappresenterà per l'occasione la famiglia reale nel leggendario paese dei vampiri. Motivo di una richiesta così bizzarra? La futura sposa, principessa Maria Theresa, è stata una sua compagna di scuola. Tutto bene, se non fosse che il tenebroso castello dei suoi ospiti le riserverà qualche emozione forte. Come il rivolo di sangue intravisto sul mento della vecchia amica. O l'improvviso decesso di un convitato durante la cerimonia. Qualcosa allora Georgie dovrà inventarsi per salvare le nozze. E per impedire che il voto solenne suggelli l'unione eterna fra due non-morti...
