An aristocratic, Oxford-educated lawyer, Harry Jones would never have met Cedric Hill—a mechanic on an Australian sheep ranch—if it hadn't been for the Great War. Imprisoned in a remote Turkish POW camp, Jones and Hill devised a Ouija board, and as the author of Conan Doyle for the Defense recounts here, they used a clever ruse to beguile and outwit their captors in a bold bid for freedom.

"Fox tells a brisk story filled with colorful background on the magic, spiritualism, and psychiatry of the day."—Kirkus Reviews
