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 the 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 reader 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.Hide synopsis

This book was not as good as the movie, but it was definitely interesting. I reads like two diaries. The two Magicians are warring with one another just like the movie, but it is over causing one's wife to miscarriage instead of killing her like seen in the movie. When you read the first diary you ...
Having gotten the book after reading the movie, I found that the book was more of a science-fiction/fantasy exploration than the movie, but both were good in their own rights. The main difference is that, in the book, the story of the two feuding musicians falls within the story of the eventual meeting ...
I bought this after seeing the movie, hoping to clear up some plot points that left me wishing the movie were longer (now, that's a great kind of movie). Frankly, I think the movie improved on the story a bit. Although it's a captivating story, the book needed some serious tightening up. The movie ...
This is an excellently written book that paints a vivid picture of the two main characters and their struggles. I enjoyed that the reader is shown the lives of both the main characters - the reader is able to expereince some incidents from more than one point of view. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel ...
