The world of Victorian magic, spiritism and sordid secrets is recreated in eerie detail. And through it all, the reader is asking himself how his attention is being manipulated so that he can be deceived.
"An illusion has three stages."
- Set up (my hands are empty, my sleeves are too, the cup is solid ...)
- Performance (the prestidigitation)
- Prestige (the product of the magic, the rabbit)
