The hottest trick in close-up magic! Now with new REALISTIC-LOOKING burnt cards!

Coin magic meets card magic in a burst of flames! A card is selected, signed and returned to the pack. A borrowed and marked coin is wrapped in a piece of tissue paper and placed on top of a deck. The spectator touches a lit match to the tissue paper and it bursts into flames. When the smoke clears, a HOLE HAS BURNT THROUGH HALF THE CARDS and the marked coin is found resting, directly on top of the signed card! And the deck can be examined! This absolute reputation-maker is very easy to do and resets in a second.

Comes complete with very special Bicycle cards and an instructional DVD featuring ADDED INFORMATION and NEW BONUS HANDLINGS! (Flashpaper not included.)

Along with the "Classic Handling," the bonus material on the instructional dvd includes the "Turnover Pass Convincer," the "Any Thought Of Card" handling, the "Added Prediction" handling, and even an "Eerie Revelation" routine that allows you to perform the legendary Haunted Pack as a warm-up to the Classic Handling with no extra gimmicks or preparation!

"'In A Flash' has never, and I mean never, failed to just flat freak people out!"

This is not your regular card trick Report this review

In a flash is one of my favorite card tricks for table hopping, walk-around and close up encounters in general. It is visual, involves fire (which always grabs people's attention) and the final condition of the deck creates a lasting memory in the spectator's mind. Even more good news for the real-world performer: it resets almost instantly. Wonderful trick!

Amazing fire Report this review

Fire gets huge reactions. This is a great bit for strolling acts. As with all presentations, you will need to practice the moves, patter, and presentation. You can easily adapt the moves and ideas to other presentations. This is not a beginer trick. You will need to master some card manipulation. Did I mention the fire?

visual and fire! Report this review

While this routine is very visual it is best suited for table/restraunt magic. NOT STAND up. However, having said that, if you are looking to combine coin magic, card magic, and everyones best friend fire, then this is for you. great visuals and sankey at his best

In A Flash Report this review

I purchased this trick without the DVD so I can only speak on the effect itself. Your performance will really sell this trick so practice it a lot. From my experience doing this trick, it gets great reactions. The only downside is that you have to purchase flash paper separately. If you perform this, it will be one of those tricks that people remember you because of. Add to Cart!

This trick is a real worker. Never fails to get the attention as an opener, and never fails to provoke a reaction.

Guaranteed amazing reactions Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
This is one of my most requested effects right now and it is super simple to perform and requires almost no sleight of hand and when you light up the tissue paper (you know what it really is) you're sure to get some gasps from the audience and when you go to the bottom of the hole in that deck and show that it's their freely selected and signed card they absolutely freak out.

Excellent. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 9th, 2010
This is the effect I seem to get remembered for; people describe me to their friends as 'the guy who put a coin through a deck of cards in a fireball'! It's a great trick and very easy to do. You should certainly buy this because it is a reputation maker!

Love the effect, not so much the new gaff Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 23rd, 2013
This is my third "In A Flash" deck, which tells you something. It is easily my favorite close-up/walk-around effect. The look on the spectator's face as the coin appears to melt through the deck is priceless. Everybody loves fire magic, and this is a sure-fire winner anywhere flash paper is allowed.

I use the line, "If you like card tricks, than this one is my favorite. And if you don't like card tricks, than consider this a coin trick."

One thing to note for those who purchased the original version of this several years ago--the gaff has been slightly modified. Ostensibly, this was to better simulate a burn patttern. But I suspect part of it also had to do with making this more difficult to counterfiet, as was ubiquitious on a well-known auction site during this effect's heyday. I think I prefered the original, but once you have the ash from a few performances, nobody will question whether or not the deck is actually burning.

Finally, I recently purchased Jay Sankey's "Identity Theft Project." He has a routine there that uses a borrowed quarter and suggests going from that routine directly into "In a Flash." That's a good idea that I look forward to trying soon, as I love it when one effect can flow into another seamlessly.

First of all, this illusion is very good. That being said, here is a comment on a previous review. I am doing this out of absolute intrigue and for the benefit of anyone who writes, at all. This is meant for Christopher Nicholson of Sterling Viginia, in particular. I agree with your spot on review Christopher. That being said, I will now give my comments on your review. The words "then" & "than" are similar looking, yet they have very different meanings. The word "then" gives reference to time, whereas the word "than" gives reference to choice. For example... "I'd rather eat this, (than) that"... as opposed to... "We should do this, (then) that". Sorry for the seemingly rude English lesson, but I simply found it too humorous that you chose to use the words "ostensibly" & "ubiquitous" in your review, yet continually and incorrectly used the word "than" in place of the correct word "then". A common mistake. All too common. FYI Christopher, you mistakenly added an extra "i" to the word "ubiquitous". It is not "ubiquitious". As I said, I agree with your review. Just wanted to clarify something I see EVERY single day. I mainly see it from judges, lawyers, police and politicians. Sorry if I seem like I am picking on you. Not intended at all. This review is here for a reason. Trust it. Achilles
