This ebook is all about John Quine's startlingly good "keeper" concept. The Keeper is a Straddle Faro that shuffles the entire deck but retains the second from top card in situ. But, that's just the tip of the iceberg...

This ebook is a reprint of the "keeper" material from both The Card Magic of John Quine (which was mostly Tom's material) and BS timations. The rest of the ebook is made up of "keeper" material from Precursor, The Minotaur and a whole bunch of exciting new stuff! If you can do a Straddle Faro Shuffle, you can do The Keeper. To be frank, as Harry Lorayne pointed out, Mr. Quine's original handling was a little flourishy, so the handling used in this ebook is Harry Lorayne's "My Second Keeper" from Apocalypse.

I saw Tom Craven performing the Keeper Card tricks in a recent lecture; we were ALL blown away. If you want to fool your magic friends, THIS is the way to go. The material is not too hard, but packs a wallop. Highly recommended.
