Houdini vs. Margery book

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

So I had given up on The Witch of Lime Street by David Jaher, which was first announced way back in 2007 for 2010 release. I was starting to think the entire thing was bogus. But it looks like it's on the level and now aiming for a 2012 release. Sweet.

The Witch of Lime Street will haunt bookstores in 2012

One thing I'm wondering is whether this book will be pro or con? There's something about how the original article described it as being about "Houdini's attempt to discredit Margery." Odd to think there are still pro-Margery forces out there, but when you start talking about communicating with the dead, well, people can get freaky. Does anyone here know David Jaher?
