“An enchanting account of espionage and wizardry at their blackest.”
-Peter Earnest, Executive Director of the International Spy Museum
“Melton and Wallace have achieved the ultimate mastery of the shadow world where CIA’s smoke and mirrors meet Hollywood’s art of magic, deception and illusion. Like any good stage show, the never-before-disclosed techniques are spellbinding. The history of espionage is expanded by this factual, fascinating account.”
-Tony and Jonna Mendez, Masters of Disguise
“A legendary ‘lost’ piece of magic history…It’s James Bond meets Harry Houdini!”
-Lance Burton, Master Magician
“Entrancing! I was amazed to see how the magician’s trade can be twisted to aid in the dark arts of espionage.”
-Jeff McBride, Creator of The Magic and Mystery School
“Espionage and magic! A special thrill to read the once-classified CIA magician’s manual.”
-Danny Biederman, author of The Incredible World of SPY-Fi
