tells the story of two boys whose innocent love of card tricks develops in adulthood into a dangerous game of hustles, street cons and murder. Published anonymously in Chicago in 1902, the book describes in great detail, original and brilliant methods for conjuring effects, whilst at the same time revealing the authorâs true intent, a full exposÃ© of the underground techniques used by hustlers, card cheats and con artists.Performers Guy Hollingworth.
