Solve crimes like a detective, find clues where nobody else would think of looking, trap suspects with their own words, and ignore facts that appear to be significant but are only distractions. Better than a police academy course, all 80 of these simple stories will show you how to find the culprit while everybody else is completely confused. You'll make your town's Christmas merrier when you find out who shot Santa Claus. Figure out which family member poisoned the man of the house while he was watching the Super Bowl, and which housekeeping staffer hid a ruby necklace in a liquor bottle in plain sight. As you explore these fascinating whodunits, you'll enter a bizarre, glamorous, and dangerous world of mobsters, millionaires and heiresses--even detectives themselves. In case you can't outwit the bad guys, just turn to a special section of solutions to each mystery, including an explanation of each clue. Sterling 352 pages, 102 b/w illus., 4 3/16 x 5 1/4.
