Dead men may tell tales! December 1889: While attending a performance by a famous Chinese magician, Lady Evangeline St. Claire and her partner, Rhiannon Moore, can only watch in horror as Wu Wang's bullet-catch illusion goes horribly wrong, resulting in his very public death in front of hundreds of witnesses. However, an investigation raises more questions than answers, prompting Evangeline and Rhiannon to enter the sometimes dangerous world of the variety theatre. Here they find performers and promoters who may be involved in the Great Game of international espionage between Russia and Britain. When they are recruited by Her Majesty's government to uncover the truth about the mysteries behind the magician and his murder, they find the backstage can be a fatal place to those who pit their wits against...The Curse of the Jade Dragon.
