When the CIA commissioned a top secret undercover operation in 1953, against the backdrop of the Cold War, they enlisted the help of famous magician John Mulholland to write two manuals on sleight of hand and undercover communication. In 1973 all documents related to the mission were destroyed, Mulholland's magic manuals were thought to be lost, until recently a single copy of each document was found...This is the first publication to reconstruct John Mulholland's manual from the original pages. With chapter headings such as Handling of Powders, Surreptitious Removal of Objects and Special Aspects of Deception for Women, working examples and detailed, hand-drawn illustrations. The Official CIA Manual of Trickery and Deception is a fascinating read into a world of wizardry and spycraft. For example, do you know how to use cars for transporting bodies, cigarette papers for surreptitious notes, fake coins to hide poisonous powder? Read on and become an accessory to espionage!
