Publisher's Summary

Two 19th-century stage illusionists, the aristocratic Rupert Angier and the working-class Alfred Borden, engage in a bitter and deadly feud - and the effects are still being felt by their respective families a hundred years later.

Working in the gaslight-and-velvet world of Victorian music halls, they prowl edgily in the background of each other's shadowy life, driven to extremes by a deadly combination of obsessive secrecy and insatiable curiosity. At the heart of the row is an amazing illusion they both perform during their stage acts.

The secret of the magic is simple, and the listener is in on it almost from the start, but to the antagonists, the real mystery lies deeper. Both have something more to hide than the mere workings of a trick.

What the Critics Say

"A brilliantly constructed entertainment, with a plot as simple and intricate as a nest of Chinese boxes...a dizzying magic show of a novel." (The Washington Post)

    "Not like the movie (but still good)"

    An interesting story which relates to the film by Christopher Nolan but has enough significant differences to make it worth consuming and considering independently. It's well performed and there is a wonderful part which tracks a boy ageing to manhood with the voice shifting in step to great effect.
