A body in the topiary garden. Death at a clairvoyants’ convention. The mysterious accident of the boating lake.
Only Medea Thorne can solve these puzzling cases. She’s one of the world’s greatest detectives, after all. But every brilliant detective needs a clever sidekick, and that’s where you come in.
As Ms. Thorne’s assistant, you’ll meet colorful characters, including deep-sea diver Perserverance Cragspur, ghost hunter Augustine Artaud, and Lawrence Fanshawe, who brought pickled cucumbers to the Annual Perfect Pickled Foods Festival. But who put poison in the jam? Who changed the crosswords clues to death threats? And which member of the Aesthetes Society is guilty of murder?
Each case is sumptuously illustrated, and you’ll have to pore over both the stories and the art to find all the clues. You’ll be challenged to solve a variety of puzzles and engage all your deductive skills.
Prepare yourself for a whirlwind adventure full of wit, elegance, and a touch of the macabre.
