    Achaotic story line that the previous stories, also this one involves the circus world and the argot can get a bit confusing and add some density to the story that doesn t help all the time The murderer was an interesting one and one that I didn t figure out so easily, it was a great set up for a murder mystery just feel that it was overcrowded with the slang of the world, and their explanations, then the jumping about from place to place and trying to track people.One character Stuart Achaotic story line that the previous stories, also this one involves the circus world and the argot can get a bit confusing and add some density to the story that doesn t help all the time The murderer was an interesting one and one that I didn t figure out so easily, it was a great set up for a murder mystery just feel that it was overcrowded with the slang of the world, and their explanations, then the jumping about from place to place and trying to track people.One character Stuart Towne was in this story, won t give away his secret but the fun thing is that this is the name that Clayton Rawson wrote a series of short mysteries under So, we are briefly introduced to his alias in this mystery If you had to skip one of these stories, you could pick this one However, if you are really interested in circus stuff then you should read it

    I love magicians and circuses and like to get behind the scenes to see what life is really like behind the magic and the makeup The Headless Lady did that but in stilted kind of way While the author uses circus and magic terms, he also feels compelled to translate them, either through character dialogue or explanations in parentheses I had the feeling throughout the book that author Clayton Rawson was just too self conscious about being a proper author The novel is also dated in its stereo I love magicians and circuses and like to get behind the scenes to see what life is really like behind the magic and the makeup The Headless Lady did that but in stilted kind of way While the author uses circus and magic terms, he also feels compelled to translate them, either through character dialogue or explanations in parentheses I had the feeling throughout the book that author Clayton Rawson was just too self conscious about being a proper author The novel is also dated in its stereotype view of women and racist view of blacks who are referred to as bucks

    The Great Merlini is on the hunt, after a mysterious woman breaks into his magic shop and steals the Headless Lady apparatus He soon tracks her to the Hannum Brothers Circus, only to learn that the owner is newly dead in an unexplained auto accident Merlini joins his many circus friends to investigate, despite the dangers of an unknown murderer and the rural cops, many of them on the take, and some of whom suspicious of him Another great story from Rawson.

    I m always a sucker for the magician detective subgenre.A woman takes a Headless Lady display from Merlini s magic shop In order to track her down, Merlini and the narrator join a circus, and get involved in a murder plot.A very good mystery with lots of atmosphere.
