I picked up this book while browsing through the gift shop at the Spy Museum in DC. While initially bought for a few laughs it is actually disturbingly graphic from how to build a false bottom on your couch (good for hiding a person) or even to throw incriminating evidence in a pot of baked beans (if the police show up unannounced, but I guess that means you should always have a thick stew on the stove if you're involved in illegal activities). You can even learn how to make a two-way mirror if you need to do some spying of your own.

Another interesting sidenote: the author is a former IRA soldier, so you know he has some experience in hiding stuff. I was thinking I could offer deep insight about this book being an interesting read in this time of increased government surveillance but I'm not that smart.
