Steven Steele Mona Lisa's Secret
Christian, it was great meeting you at the World Magic
Seminar. I got home and the first routine I opened was
Mona Lisa's Secret. It's now in my close-up act and I have
to say, it has gotten the best reaction of any routine
I've placed in my act in years. To say it kills would be a

This is the cleanest approach to a Brainwave Deck ever, and now also available in Parlour size.
You take a red deck out of a red card case (also available in blue back version).
You can show all faces as you really have a complete deck.
Let your spectators name any card they want, or - even better - ask three different spectators for three different cards.
No force, no stooges, no sleights!
You spread the deck to find the three named cards.
Take out the three cards and place them in front of the deck.
Turn over the deck and spread it openly to show a complete red deck.
Then - one by one - turn over the chosen cards to show that they are all blue!
This is by far the cleanest, fairest and easiest Brainwave effect. Other presentations are possible, perhaps you can also reveal a single card only. You could even spot the selected cards from the back as the backs are marked. Your creativity will be your limitation.
