Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
The sixties are going well for Edgar Stephens and his good friend the magician Max Mephisto. Edgar is happily married with children and was recently promoted to superintendent. Max has found fame and stardom in America, though he is now back in England for a funeral and a prospective movie job. But Edgar's new wife - former detective Emma - is restless and frustrated at home, knowing she is the best detective on the team. When an investigation into a string of disappearing girls starts, Emma sees her chance to get back in the action. She begins her own hunt, determined to prove, once and for all, that she's better than the boys. She's not the only one working toward that goal, though; there's a new woman on the force out to make detective. When two more girls go missing, both with ties to the same group, the stakes climb higher than ever, and Max finds himself drawn into a search of his own. Who will find the girls first? And will they get there in time?
