Hidden in Plain Sight is the most complete manual for marked cards ever published. Author Kirk Charles, a longtime professional magician, has written a book that explores this most powerful of all magical tools in great detail. From the history of marked cards to more modern developments in "reader" technology, Charles breaks down the advantages, disadvantages and nuances you'll need to know. You'll learn about commercially available decks as well as how to prepare your own custom-marked pack.

Additionally, Charles delves into the psychology involved in performing with a marked deck. From strategies for misdirection to key cards, stacked decks, and mnemonics, Charles explores every angle of the tips and tactics that can enhance tricks with any marked deck.

For the beginning card conjurer, an entire chapter of easy-to-do miracle material has been included. These tricks require little if any sleight-of-hand, yet pack a wallop when performed. Even amateurs, armed with a marked deck and these "Instant Miracles" will be amazing spectators in no time!

Best of all, Hidden in Plain Sight details the workings of the finest marked cards on the market, the Boris Wild Marked Deck. A lengthy chapter, written by Boris Wild himself, details the nuts and bolts of his stellar system, and includes two blockbuster tricks that will fool not only laymen, but magicians as well!

For the serious student, a lengthy bibliography has been included, leading the reader to further information and uses for marked cards.

This is a good history of marked cards. It covers different styles, handling, and some very neat effects you can do with your deck of choice. Boris has a section where he discusses his Deck. I got my first marked deck 55 years ago and know my way around probably above average. I rated this 5 stars because it really is the most comprehensive book I have been through. Kirk Charles has done an outstanding job with his research. Also, the handlings are above average and the illustrations are first rate.

I can't believe I haven't heard more about this book, especially at this price. It has a great history of marked decks that you can buy or make, and some great effects to go along with it. I had hoped to buy Boris Wild's "Transparency" when I can afford it, but in the mean time this will keep me plenty busy for a pittance.
