This trick is an extension of a trick published under the same name by Robert E. Neale in his book “Life, Death, and Other Card Tricks,” pages 267-270, Hermetic Press, Inc, Seattle, Washington, 2000.
My version employs a condensed and somewhat altered patter taken from Mr Neale’s presentation, and it adds extra phases to the routine. The trick is marketed with the kind permission of Mr. Neale.
Four young women seek lodging at a European inn. Each receives her own room, thus filling up the hotel and leaving no room for Death. But Death arrives, and the lack of a room leads to some unsettling consequences.
What you receive:
Four aged and hand-made cards in an aged book box
An instruction manual on parchment-like paper, containing a suggested story
