There's a magic show downtown, tonight. Prosperio the magician has one hell of a final trick, which leaves audiences screaming for more, but is it illusion or a bloody miracle? Strung out detective Dick Winthorpe and muckraking reporter Clark Reynolds are going to get to the bottom of Prosperio's act . . .. even if the journey to truth destroys them.
