            While performing before Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, the world's greatest escape artist Harry Houdini becomes pitted against a formidable foe: Rasputin. A powerful mystic, Rasputin has made puppets of the Tsar and his wife Alexandra. To save the nation from ruin, a small band of p...atriots recruits Houdini to expose the imperial spiritual advisor as a charlatan. Houdini wages an epic battle of wits and wills with the charismatic fiend. The American magician's daring and ingenuity are put to the test in an adventure that takes him from the grand palaces of St. Petersburg to the frigid wastelands of Siberia.Along the way, Houdini makes allies and enemies of a host of real-life figures, including the mischievous imp Princess Anastasia, the colossal former boxer and royal bodyguard Jim Hercules, the crossdressing conspirator Prince Yusupov and the sinister Black Sisters, practitioners of the occult who scheme to use Rasputin for their own ends. Meticulous research brings these people and the Russia of 1911 to life.Rasputin is one of history's most fascinating villains, at once a barely literate Siberian peasant and a Nietzschean superman, a Christ-figure to his followers and the Antichrist to his foes, a faith healer and a debaucher of enormous sexual appetites. He has at his disposal an army of goons, femme fatales, Gypsies, hypnotized assassins and fanatical members of the mysterious Khlysty cult.However, Rasputin's greatest strength is his own extraordinary personal magnetism. Gathered around him is a circle of female devotees known as the Little Ladies. To help Houdini bring Rasputin down, the magician's feisty wife Bess infiltrates this coven. She falls under Rasputin's spell and Harry must rescue her from his clutches.As in Houdini's movie serials, he escapes from one peril after another: buried alive under six feet of snow; trapped in a burning barn by Rasputin's henchmen; chained to a rack in the medieval torture chamber of Ivan the Terrible.

            Shaking Tent: No Turning Back
             

            Shaking Tent: No Turning Back (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            • RRP: $46.50
            • $46.50
            • In Stock US

            Shaking Tent by Anne Michael, is a historical fiction based on true events, mysticism and culture including the actual, emotional, gut-wrenching apologies of the Pope, the Government of Canada and many other religious faiths. The reader wants to do something, anything to find rec...onciliation while journeying through the novel. It will make your cry, make you mad and make your heart swell with pride. The novel was first inspired by a personal photograph of a double-mouthed fish, taken by the author while attending a wedding in Port Washington, Wisconsin in 1979; and further motivated by an event in 2016, when a half billion fish went belly up in the waters around Chicago causing significant inquires. The story begins in a courtroom in Chicago, Illinois, continues to a courtroom amidst the oil sands of Fort McMurray in Alberta, Canada, evolving to an actual mansion in Illinois belonging to an Indian princess and back to Chicago. Once you begin reading, the story is a page turner introducing surprising elements beyond imagination. Truth is stranger than fiction. Every person should take the responsibility to pass this story through the generations of their family. The main characters, Bexley Hargrove, Obigon, Snowbird and Maude mirror the efforts of the Erin Brockovich and Sherlock Holmes searching for reconciliation for culture and environment. Two worlds collide in the mindset of the First Nation's culture, the little people roaming through strange hoodoos, fairies living in trees, heartaches, a budding love story, and intense family loyalty. Bexley Hargrove, a successful corporate lawyer at a prestigious law firm in Chicago, teams up with a Canadian law firm fighting for the rights of a twelve year old great-granddaughter, whose life is in limbo after her parent's death. The one-hundred-year old great-grandfather's claim to her guardianship is questioned after he contracts a rare cancer. Unexpected family reunions unveil deep secrets, harbored for nearly a century, a
