In "Memory of a Murder," a young man becomes involved in a love triangle with a jealous magician and his beautiful assistant.
The poster is an advertisement for...Constantine, Prince of Illusion.
While Harry is standing outside the Pageant Theater staring at the poster, the manager comes out to post a "Help Wanted" sign. Before he can finish, Harry talks himself into the job.
Constantine's act involves knife-throwing and other illusions of violence, with which he is assisted by the lovely Marietta.
Even though Harry finds the act distasteful, he becomes smitten with Marietta. Then, he discovers that his predecessor, Nino, was in love with Marietta, too. Constantine didn't like Nino, so he killed him out of jealousy. It was Nino's grave that Harry saw Constantine digging in the cemetery!
Will Constantine go after Harry this time, Or Marietta?
