A compendium of Sherlock Holmes inspired bizarre and story-telling magic utilizing playing cards, pendulums and other common objects. This collection of four routines will take you and your audience to a world of London fog, Victorian mystery, and self-working wonders.

Written in Paul's usual engaging and entertaining manner, the routines featured use nothing but self-working techniques which allows you to concentrate on performance and setting the right atmosphere.

Routines featured are:

Dr. Bell's Party Piece: Arthur Conan Doyle's inspiration for Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Joseph Bell was a master of deduction, observation, and memory. But how, exactly, could he memorize a freely shuffled deck of cards in mere seconds?!

Jack the Ripper's Picture Book: A pack of cards reputed to have belonged to the infamous Jack the Ripper display a chilling characteristic!

Seance for a Clock-Maker: A brutally murdered clock-maker crosses the boundaries of space and time to communicate with your volunteer!

The Curious Case of the Fairy Rings: Two silver rings, supposedly given by the Cottingley fairies to the girls Elsie & Frances, demonstrate a strange quality!

This is top quality story-telling and spooky magic. Paul has pushed his imagination and writing ability to new levels to create stories that are both compelling and genuinely chilling. The PDF itself is centered around a dinner party held on December 31st 1922, where the host introduces his weird collection of Sherlock Holmes inspired artifacts to his unsuspecting dinner guests. All routines are fully scripted and fully explained, with subtleties and performance advice.

These four effects are indeed put to a Sherlock Holmes background story (you are at a dinner party watching him perform these "feats of deduction"), but they will appeal only to the beginner or someone only casually interested in doing a few quick tricks for a party. The first one, where you appear to memorize a deck in seconds, is the only one that seems interesting--and it requires something you might already have but it's not guaranteed, so you may have to purchase something else to perform it.

The other three effects likewise require props but you can make them or find them fairly easily. I sincerely doubt this will fool anyone with more than a passing knowledge of magic tricks, yet if you are looking for something for a spooky night of mystery that requires little if any practice, you'll find a cheap choice here.
