Ed Ifkovic takes the "locked room" mystery on a clever, historical spin in ESCAPE ARTIST. Edna Ferber is just one year shy of twenty, but people in her small Wisconsin town still think she is too young to be working as newspaper reporter. That doesn't stop the young woman, however, from interviewing celebrity magician Harry Houdini when he swings through the town. Then, a local girl goes missing--while locked in a room at school. The police are completely confounded, so Edna and Harry investigate the mystery.
