4 : A Further 36 Cases of Murder and Mayhem for You to SolveBook - 2004
Got a few minutes to kill? Test your powers of deduction with 36 of the best quick-read whodunits in the fourth installment of the popular Five-minute Mysteries series.
Here's the idea: take about five minutes and read a mystery. The stories -- some about the crime, some about evidence left behind, or perhaps the getaway or the investigating detective, and so on -- are told with all the clues you need to solve the question posed at the end.
A sampling of the mysteries to solve: How the Peeping Tom coroner helped solve the mystery of the dead hermit. The dead mobster who cast a suspicious shadow. The fuzzy witness and the case of the dead cattle herd. The bagpipe-playing truck driver's insurance scam. Plus 32 more fascinating mysteries to solve.
The cases presented are rated from easy to moderate to challenging. Some of the mysteries will unravel faster than a dime store sweater while others will remain "on the books" for a long time. Or at least until you go to the back of the book where the solution to each mystery is revealed.
Five-minute Mysteries 4 is a treat for puzzle and mystery fans and a rare opportunity to step into the shoes of law enforcement and outsmart the criminals.
