Here’s what the experts are saying…
“Aunt Mary’s Terrible Secret is too good to share. I have used this routine in paid performances for many years. I am as sorry to have to share it with the fraternity as I have been sorry to have to share it with the originator himself. Perhaps by buying this book， I will obtain retroactive permission for my past performances.” — Michael Weber
“Quite simply， this is a highly commercial routine. It combines money， gambling， audience participation， and uncanny control over the cards to produce a routine that audiences love and remember.” — Darwin Ortiz
“David has given the serious performer a truly masterful three-act professional performance piece that will leave his unwitting participants completely entertained and at a total loss as to any explanation.” — Roger Klause
