Dead Men Do Tell Tales: 60 Mini-Mysteries to Test Your Detective Prowess
Do the "Barroom Crawl," in which a man walks into a bar—and doesn't walk out. Take a shot at "Billiard Blues" to discover murder right on cue, and "Hang On" to find a telemarketer permanently disconnected. These witty whodunits will challenge your knowledge of trivia with mysteries involving literature, art, music, history, baseball, and other pop-culture subjects.
A murder-filled crossword puzzle without the squares, this collection features hints and solutions at the end, along with suggestions for further reading. The puzzling vignettes can be enjoyed alone or in groups, and as the author notes, "They're fun. They're educational. They have dead bodies in them."
