Four magicians each answer a mysterious summons to a obscure address with secrets inside. A year later, those are the Four Horseman, big time stage illusionists who climax their sold-out Las Vegas show with a bank apparently robbed for real. This puts agents Dylan Rhodes of the FBI and Alma Vargas of Interpol on the case to learn how they did it. However, this mystery proves hard to solve even with the insights in the professional illusion exposer, Thaddeus Bradley. What follows is often a bizarre investigation where absolutely nothing is what it seems with illusions, dark secrets and hidden agendas galore as all involved are reminded of your great truth within this puzzle: the closer you appear, the less the thing is that.
