One-Minute Mysteries and Brain Teasers
Could you figure out how a stopped clock wouldn't give the time of the robbery which caused the clock to stop? Or how someone could find the owner of a wallet with illegible identification? If so, you've come to the right books. Inside are dozens of sleuthing cases to solve, from crimes to natural mysteries. Each case gives a brief synopsis (hence the name "One-Minute") and a humorous, if inaccurate, illustration. If you need help solving it, simply refer to the clues in the back of the book; don't worry, they won't give away the answer too easily. According to the author, these puzzlers are best solved by teams of amateur detectives, but feel free to give them a try by yourself.
