From the writer of the 'James Clyde' book series comes a heart-warming, middle-grade story about a world-famous magician called 'Orson the Great'.
When ten-year-old Orson Whitlock is given a deck of cards by his father on Christmas Eve 1970, he falls in love with magic. This present kickstarts Orson's meteoric rise to the top of his profession.
By Christmas 1972, Orson is an established magician and performs to audiences in some of the most prestigious theatres around the world.
His blissful life is soon turned upside down, however, when he discovers a family secret going back generations. Orson is dragged deeper into a world of secret societies, deception, strange disappearances and unrest.
Events take a further unexpected turn when a brilliant, but feared, magician known as 'Daxton the Destroyer' challenges Orson to a contest for the most sought-after title in magic.
Teaming up with his assistant Agatha Anderson, Orson must put his skills to the test and confront his most formidable opponent yet - or face losing everything that he holds dear.
