Overview

The year is 1895, and Danny Flint is a young man living in the shadow of his controlling father, a famous stage magician whose fortunes are fading. Uncle Brady, Professor Flint's trusted assistant and business manager and Danny's best friend, cannot stay in the same hotel as them--Uncle Brady is African-American. Danny is grieving over his mother's recent accidental death, for which he feels he is to blame.

When a mysterious beautiful lady comes to them asking for help, Danny and his father will confront the ethical dilemma between spiritualist séances and faked séances performed by stage magicians like them.

He will learn to reconcile himself with his grief and guilt, learn the secret of Uncle Brady's identity, and assume his place at center stage as a talented magician in his own right with the help of the mysterious beautiful lady.

Every Mystery Unexplained was published in David Copperfield's Tales of the Impossible (HarperPrism), which also included stories by Ray Bradbury, Joyce Carol Oates, and Kevin J. Anderson.
