When a mysterious beautiful lady comes to them asking for help, Danny and his father will confront the ethical dilemma between spiritualist séances and faked séances performed by stage magicians like them.
He will learn to reconcile himself with his grief and guilt, learn the secret of Uncle Brady’s identity, and assume his place at center stage as a talented magician in his own right with the help of the mysterious beautiful lady.

“This is the type of story I was hoping for from these anthologies: a blend of fiction and magic history. Mason knows her magic history (the title is from a Harry Kellar quote) and she knows San Francisco.”
