I stumbled onto a book called The Glorious Deception at a book store. I didn’t buy it but the link goes to it on Amazon.
From what I read on the description it’s about a Magician who posed as a Chinese male but after his death it was revealed he was really a caucasian. Even then his apparent “real identity” was fraudulent. I’ll wait until after I get a job before I think about buying the book. Has anybody else read it?
From what I can gather even his on stage accidental death seemed suspicious.
