Will Dexter: Secrets of the Conjurer's Craft

Comments: I'm not positive, but this appears to be a condensed version of another Dexter book, This is Magic - Secrets of the Conjurer's Craft. That book is over 200 pages and has four more chapters - 7) Up in the Middle of the Air; 12) Think of a Number; 13) The Sealed Mystery; and 14) Is It Second Sight?
