This was the first book in the series and it caused a complete sensation. This book attracted a great deal of attention and many wonderful feature reviews. For example
Peter Zenner: Martin, has excelled himself with the production values. It looks beautiful; maybe it is the most attractive looking book I have ever seen. If you are interested in Canasta then you will have to buy the book.
Bob Gill: I’m not sure that there have been other books quite like this. You know those reviews you read which say of novels, ‘I couldn’t put it down ’til I’d read it through from cover to cover’? Well, I’ll cheerfully admit to devouring this volume at one sitting until well into the early hours; it’s it a comparative rarity in contemporary magic publishing: a rattling good read.
Sal Franchino (USA): It is superbly produced. The binding and cover are absolute dynamite. Thank you for such a good work. It is a delight to receive a product that lives up to its promise and delivers value!
