Whatever it is you want, I know of a guy who can make it all happen for a hundred bucks, says Susan Erasmus.

The end of all your troubles is in sight. Whether you want to learn to play the guitar, get your husband back, get a good job, win a court case, cure diabetes or cancer, or have a wonderful sex life, help is at hand.

Or so the little pamphlet on the windscreen of my car told me.

I just remember the place sounded exotic and so did the name of the 'prophet'.

Astonishing spells
On the astonishing list of changes this healer could bring about in your life were many things which under normal circumstances would require the co-operation of others: your boss would like you; your troubles with the neighbours would recede; you will pass your drivers’ licence test; your in-laws will think you are wonderful; your terminal disease will be cured.
