In the book Paul Curry Presents there is an excellent effect entitled Mission Incredible. This is particularly effective when it follows a previous effect called The Problem of Thirteen. Unfortunately Mission Incredible requires something more than a normal pack. In the version to be described any pack may be used.

Look at the spectator and say, "Would you be surprised if that last card was the King?" Again deal the King face down onto the table inviting the spectator to turn it face up. As he does so and finds the King, secretly turn over the pack which brings the remaining twelve spades to the top. You will usually have time to right the faced pack at this point as the misdirection is very strong as the spectator turns over the King. Having righted the pack spread it across the table face down. Finally turn the cards over slowly one at a time revealing that the spectator is turning over the King, count the top twelve cards face down onto the table as you say "If you were correct that would be the Queen, the Jack, ten, etc and so on until the Ace is reached which you turn face up, and saying, "I was right with the Ace, how well did you do?" Have him turn the twelve cards face up one at a time, and as he does so you have ample time to right the faced pack, and spread them on the table to conclude a simple but very effective trick.
