Hello and Happy New Year!
Nothing new to report on the book front yet I'm afraid. I'm still waiting for an editor to be appointed. But, in the meantime I thought we'd have a bit of fun :D
Yesterday I went to my favourite bookshop in nearby Penn village (this amazing place) and, among the bargains I picked up, was this - The Complete Home Entertainer.
It's a great little book published around 1940 and is full of puzzle, games and things to make and do. But imagine my delight when, in a section called 'Rub Up Your Wits' (!) I came across a section of murder mysteries for us amateur sleuths to solve! It was the clincher for buying the book to be honest.
So, do you fancy having a go at solving a crime? If you enjoy it, I'll post some of the others (there are 10 of them).
We begin with The Loan Office Murder. Click on the images to see a larger version of each page. I'll also include zoomed versions of the illustrations - if that helps!
I'll publish the book's answer in my next shedpost.
Leave a comment with your theories!
