By Margalit Fox. From Susan Howard's review at Best Evidence: "During World War I, Ottoman forces took two Allied soldiers as prisoners of war: Harry Jones, an Oxford-educated barrister turned British soldier, and Cedric Hill, an Australian pilot with an interest in magic. The two concoct an elaborate ruse to deceive their captors and escape. The methods of their con: a homemade Ouija board and the archetypal and familiar quest for a lost treasure."
