From The Smart Kid:
Next to the box, stood a book: Handcuff Secrets by Harry Houdini.
Matthew Janson has an interest in magic tricks. He’s already demonstrated a coin trick to the counselor. When she enters his bedroom, she sees this book on a shelf. (It is referred to later in the novel too.)
Published in 1910 by the famous escape artist, this book is in the public domain. You may download a copy at this link:
