It's hilarious, escapist fun, a spooky puzzle and an entertaining whodunit! Psychic Jenny Davenport is murdered at a lodge that once belonged to The Great Marvel, a famed "Illusionist." Who should turn up as the investigator but another dingy psychic, Claire Voyant, who solicits the help of a bunch of weirdos: Bella Donna and her nasty ventriloquist dummy, Chester; Anne Boleyn, who has a terrible fear of axes; and Ernst Slater, the man with the x-ray eyes. Toss in some bumbling police, a fish-out-of-water niece, a crazed hermit, a walking lampshade, and a ham actor, and the results are an hysterically funny, genuinely scary one-of-a-kind lampoon. A sure-fire audience pleaser from the popular author of The Butler Did It and The Night of the Living Beauty Pageant.
