Jack Yates & Ken de Courcy

Accusation by Jack Yates & Ken de CourcyFrom the introduction:
"Accusation" is a court-room drama, not exactly legal, of course, but realistic enough to cause the accused to lie and the witnesses to commit perjury! If the trick does not have impact, it will be your own doing.
The Effect: From a list of criminals a spectator mentally selects a name and, from then on, 'becomes' this person. He also selects the crimes he will be accused of in the course of the examination. He also selects one, two or three witnesses who are put in the 'witness-box'. Despite the lack of clues, the performer reveals the criminal's name and his crimes. ...

Minds in Duplicate by Jack YatesMinds in Duplicate contains a number of routines designed to be presented as telepathic demonstrations between the performer and his partner. Each effect carries conviction, and not one of them calls for the long rehearsal and extensive memorisation of codes common to this class of work. Maximum effect is secured with minimum trouble. With the material in this book alone, thought-reading reputations can be made.

Jack Yates

Jack's Pack by Jack YatesJack Yates was a very clever and innovative magician who has somehow stayed below the radar and is completely unknown - undeservedly so - to many particularly in the US. Jack's Pack is a clever stacking method for finding any card in a deck by way of using numbers, names, words, etc.

Edited and with additional notes by Ken de Courcy.

Jack Yates

Card Caprice by Jack Yates"Jack's Wallet" is an ingenious way of predicting a freely-chosen card using an unfaked wallet, the sort you probably possess already. It is a 'stand-up' trick without the need for a table, the type that is becoming more and more popular.

The second effect, "Jack's Line-Up", is a mental masterpiece that, properly performed, will stagger an audience whether it's done impromptu or as part of a regular cabaret act.

Here are the more detailed effects:

JACK's WALLET: Briefly, a spectator selects a card. It is not forced. The performer allows another spectator to remove a sealed envelope...
