The final volume of weird and wonderful magic!
A lucky coin that becomes as scarred as its owner, a murdered woman kept alive in a photograph, dice that tell the future just for starters, a Chinese magician who gets his revenge in the most horrible of ways, an obscene thing which hides beauty and reveals hypocrisy -- and that's just the beginning of what you'll find in Five, the last volume of the strange magic series!
13 routines of bizarre, touching, weird, scary, and entertaining magic!
And that's just the beginning of the things you'll discover in -- and enjoy performing -- Five!

- Show just how quickly prison walls can be an inbreachable fortress in the darkest of circumstances!
- Explain that Satan just ain't all that bad; it's just his marketing that's evil!

- Prove how obscenity is just the beginning of something more insidious!
