Description

When you have a few minutes to kill.

Armchair sleuths can test their powers of deduction with 37 of the best quick-read whodunits in this sixth volume of the popular Five-Minute Mysteries series.

Here's the idea. Readers take about five minutes to read a short mystery. Next, they must solve the question posed at the end by putting themselves in the shoes of the detective to examine the evidence and figure out who done it. All the clues they need are found somewhere in the story.

A sampling of the mysteries in this volume:

  • There are 50 identical trailers on the highway, and one has been stolen. What is it that makes one of the trailers suspect?
  • Two lovers are found dead of carbon monoxide poisoning and a note indicates suicide. What makes the investigator believe this is a murder case?
  • A family produces a new will. What makes the lawyer suspect it a forgery?

Cases are rated easy, moderate and challenging. Some mysteries will unravel faster than a dime-store sweater while others will take longer to solve. Solutions for all, however, are revealed at the back of the book.

Five-Minute Mysteries #6 is a treat for both puzzle aficionados and mystery fans, offering a rare opportunity to step into the shoes of law enforcement professionals.
