A harmless matchbook could be used to conceal a toxic pill which could be nonchalantly dropped into a target's drink whilst simply lighting a cigarette. One of the most important and recurring lessons is the implementation of everyday objects for trickery. Try to give good hand jobs. These are the 10 best lessons coupled with s-era illustrations from the manual. The pen is mightier and deadlier than the sword.

Back cover copy Magic or spycraft? Realizing that clandestine officers might need to covertly deploy newly developed pills, potions, and powders against the adversary, the CIA hired America's most famous magician, John Mulholland, to write two manuals on sleight of hand and covert communication techniques.
Mulholland's manuals were thought to be among them--until a single surviving copy of each, complete with illustrations, was recently discovered in the agency's archives.
The manuals reprinted in this work represent the only known complete copy of Mulholland's instructions for CIA officers on the magician's art of deception and secret communications. Review quote "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.
