Not if the blurb below is true.

Here's a sample presentation:
Hand your deck to a spectator. Invite him to examine and shuffle it while your back is turned. The spectator follows your instructions and freely chooses and notes a card. He then puts his card in the card case and closes it.
So no one besides the spectator knows the value of the card locked away in the case.
You turn back towards the spectator and explain that you have the memory of an elephant. You take back the pack of the 51 remaining cards, which you quickly look over. You think for a few seconds, and then announce that the one card missing is the queen of spades.
Ask the spectator to open the case and take out the card he had hidden away there. It's the queen of spades! Incredible!
How the devil have you been able to memorize the entire deck in just a few seconds and figure out the only missing card? Your spectators will be mulling this one over for a long time!

Yeah this has to be some very fancy gimmick... It's what he does haha. I think it will be well thought out at the very least.

The magician has to touch the card box before they look through all 51 remaining cards to deduce the missing card. I think should be included in the description.
