The Official CIA Manual of Trickery and Deception

Cue old TV show intro: “In 1953, the Central Intelligence Agency contracted illusionist John Mulholland to create a secret dossier of stealth and misdirection to be used by operatives in the field. All copies of the document were believed to have been destroyed in 1973, but a single copy remained….” Believe it or not, that’s the real story behind The Official CIA Manual of Trickery and Deception ($17). Reproduced by intelligence historian H. Keith Melton and retired CIA officer Robert Wallace, this aging document — many of the “secrets” seem more mischievous than malicious in modern context — has been enhanced with improved illustrations and an extended introduction.
