Close-Up Assassin is an 88-page, softcover book devoted exclusively to the magic of Richard Sanders. This book comes packaged with a performance-only companion video, designed to give the reader a sense of how the material looks in real-time, and, while still available, has never been reissued with a DVD in place of the tape.
