MEET the Great Merlini ! Mer-lini (just in case you missed Death from a Top Hat] is a retired professional conjurer, proprietor of a magic shop and amateur detective extraordinary. Once more, with nimble-fingered sleight of hand, he shakes up a dangerously explosive mixture of Murder, Magic and Mystery. When Merlini is on a case anything may be expected to happen . . . even footprints on the ceiling. Surprise follows surprise with crackling, rapid-fire action as Merlini sorts out this exciting cast of characters: SIGRID VERRILL blonde, lovely, and possibly a damsel in distress. ARNOLD SKELTON who has something strangely wrong with his face.
