Shelf Control is a weekly book meme @ Bookshelf Fantasies in which we write about one book that we want to read and already own. Read our hostess Lisa’s choice for this week over here.
In the summer of 1921, thirteen distinguished guests gather for a weekend party and seance at a stately Devon manor house. Their host, the Earl of Axminster, is found murdered in a locked room. Two of the guests, mystery writer Arthur Conan Doyle and the Great Houdini, apply their talents to solving the ingeniously crafted and cunningly executed crime. (Goodreads)
