The year is 1923; the moon has fallen out of the sky and crashed into the ocean, knocking the planet out of its orbit into a collision course with Mars. As the human race stares at its collective death sentence, scores of competing psychic mediums rise to power by seeking help from the spirit world to save Earth. A Most Complex Form of Ventriloquism follows two rival mediums involved in a love triangle with a ghost, and Houdini, who stages a competition to debunk the hordes of charlatan mediums preying upon the fears of the weak and vulnerable.
