Not unusual for Houdini, actually. What is unusual is his involvement with a certain man in a bat costume. Yes, another Elseworlds Batman story in the world of Gotham By Gaslight.

This story is narrated by Houdini. An interesting twist has been added to Batman lore. If Houdini is a contemporary, then Wayne could not study his posthumous writings. Thus Batman is not very good at picking locks or making escapes. Not to give away the plot other than it involves missing children and a very interesting twist on the Joker (who shows up in style but not name). It also adds an interesting twist to the life of Houdini, a man who spent a great deal of time debunking the supernatural.
