The psychic Mafia
He claimed to be clairvoyant! He astounded audiences by seeming to bend objects and make them defy gravity without touching them! He conducted seances at which participants were sure they had touched the dead!
M. Lamar Keene enjoyed the riches and fame that often accompany the life of a sought-after medium. He came to be known as the "Prince of the Spiritualists". Yet every miracle Keene performed was a fraud, a lie, and a trick played on willing, gullible victims. In his powerful and nakedly honest book, The Psychic Mafia, Keene admits everything, explaining that he isn't the only fraud prowling the world of the paranormal, making huge sums exploiting the lives (and wallets) of those who believe: bereaved widows, desperate parents, separated lovers, and families.
Originally published in 1976, and long out of print, this classic work is a fast-paced autobiographical account of a confessed charlatan who was one of the first "mediums" to admit his deception. Keene details the tricks many use in the seance room to perpetrate ghostly apparitions, floating objects, talks with the dead, and more. His is an incredible look at the tricks of this lucrative trade by a man who rose to the very top of a popular business and then chose to give it up when guilt overcame him. He shed the chains of deceit for the sake of his own search for the truth.
