Barnum!: In Secret Service to the U.S.A. (Hard Cover)
Combining elements of espionage and intrigue, the historical fiction BARNUM tells the imaginative tale of P.T. Barnum, the world's greatest showman and America's best secret agent. When brilliant inventor Nikola Tesla leads a faction of the world's richest men in a plot to destroy America, Barnum must assume his role as an undercover government operative and assemble his team of talented circus freaks to thwart the devious plot.
Joined by a midget strongman, a teenaged human fly, a manhating mesmer, an empath who can speak with animals, the notorious Siamese twins, Chang and Eng, and a sword-swallowing rubber man, the master showman uses futuristic technology and his own uncanny abilities to stop the evil madman bent on world domination.
