3 : Another 40 Cases of Murder and Mayhem for You to SolveBook - 2004
40 more felonies to solve.
Here is the perfect book for when you have a few minutes to kill. Test your powers of deduction with 40 of the best quick-read whodunits in the third 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 the 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.
The problems are yours to solve: How did the courtly investigator expose the insurance cheat? What clues at the scene of a murder-suicide actually point to a murder-murder? What egregious mistakes were being made by airport security? Plus 37 more brain-teasing situations.
The cases presented are rated from easy to moderate to challenging. Some of the mysteries unravel quicker 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 3 is a treat for puzzle and mystery fans and a rare opportunity to step into the shoes of law enforcement and outsmart the criminals.
