The people will only see the deck’s front, and the break will only be visible to you. 
Take the packet (the half) at the break, and turn it face up on the top. 
ONLY ONE MOVEMENT
Put your right thumb under the packet on the break. 
The index finger, middle finger and ring finger are on the top, so turn over the packet and put it at the front showing the card. 
The picture shows the deck all ready turned. The spectator's card is on the top of the half packet that is face down.

Then showing the card as the picture shows, ask: “Is this your card?” They will say no. 
Remember: The card was left in the first position on the top of the deck that is face down. 
Now turn over the whole deck, leaving face up the packet that before was face down and leaving face down the packet that before was face up.

Ask: “Is this your card?” They will say no. 
The spectator's card now is the first from the bottom of the packet that is face up.
Take the packet that is face up and turn it face down putting it on the other packet (that is face down).
The spectator card is on the top, but nobody can see that it is there. Try to do this movement normally and with agility. 
In this moment you have control of the card. 
Control the spectator's card on top of the deck.
