Killed Merlin the Great?
Murder at the 51st Magicians Convention.
He had a “flypaper memory” for tricks, says Max the Mysterious, escapologist and suspect (like The Great Grindle, knife-thrower).
An enigmatic grave, an “astral investigator” working a crystal ball and tipping-table, and the decisive factor, a would-be socialite doctor who makes the discovery.
A very brilliant affair, from Link and Levinson.
