Book Description:

While Harry Houdini didn’t rise to fame as a screen actor, silent film makers of the day sought to capitalize on his fame. The Master Mystery was Houdini’s first such attempt, and it was embraced by the viewing public, leading to other screen roles following.

The hero (or superhero) is Quentin Locke, scientist, agent of the U.S. Justice Department, and not surprisingly, an escape artist extraordinaire.

The Master Mystery follows agent Locke through many pitfalls, in true serial fashion, as he is tasked with uncovering a band of thugs and a peculiar metal robot (reportedly the first robot in film) with a brain, called an automaton, which has been robbing potential inventors of their patent rights.

All in good fun by today’s standards, we find our hero escaping a straightjacket, a diver’s suit, and an electric chair to name but a few, and of course winning the hand of the daughter of one of the industrialists along the way.

Reviews (Rated: 2 Stars - 1 review)

Reviewer: - September 21, 2014
Subject: The Master Mystery
Certainly action packed but unfortunately lame. The story is about 10 chapters too long and becomes ridiculous. You could listen to the first 10 chaperts, pick up the last six and still get the gist of the missing chapters. Roger Melin does a great job with the narration, which is sadly wasted on this story. Definitely a plot written for a silent movie with the main character played by Houdini.
