Where To Get This Card: The Cahill Files: The Houdini Escape


"Janus escape artist Harry Houdini was famous for his death-defying acts. On stage, he dazzled audiences by escaping from tanks of water while handcuffed, or bound in a straightjacket. Off stage he infuriated his family's enemy--theVespers --by becoming one of the only Cahills to survive multiple assassination attempts. However, the Vespers never forgive and rarely forget, which is why they had agents follow Houdini for the rest of his life. According to Cahill legend, theLucians were responsible for the magician's mysterious death. But if there's one thing we learned from Houdini's spectacular act, it's that nothing is exactly what it seems."


What secret message did the Vespers leave for Houdini?

Answer: Time to die
