In The Play of Shadows: The Tarot Effect by TC Tahoe

29 effects with Tarot cards.

Here is what Richard Webster had to say about it:

In the Play of Shadows" is a goldmine...

Until now, it's been hard to find powerful effects that use Tarot cards. For me, effects with Tarot cards should include a fascinating story, and any moves need to look natural.

Complicated sleights and Tarot cards do not go well together. I have seen magicians destroy all credibility by performing feats of finger-flinging with Tarot cards. T C Tahoe obviously knows all this. His book is full of powerful effects, created with simple moves, and every one of them has a delightful story designed to intrigue, captivate and entertain the spectators.
