Who-Done-It Book Club - Fall 2024 - Cain's Jawbone


with Christa Galipeau

Calendar Next available session starts Oct 3, 2024 at 6 pm, runs for 9 weeks

Six murders. One hundred pages. Millions of possible combinations… but only one is correct. Can you solve Torquemada’s murder mystery?

In 1934, the Observer’s cryptic crossword compiler, Edward Powys Mathers (aka Torquemada), released a novel that was simultaneously a murder mystery and the most fiendishly difficult literary puzzle ever written.

The pages have been printed in an entirely haphazard order, but it is possible – through logic and intelligent reading – to sort the pages into the only correct order, revealing six murder victims and their respective murderers.

Only three puzzlers have ever solved the mystery of Cain’s Jawbone: do you have what it takes to join their ranks?

Please note: this puzzle is extremely difficult and not for the faint-hearted.

Join us as we break this book down and try to find out who-done-it.  We will be meeting once a month for the year, or until we crack the code.  We will meet the first Thursday of every month starting in October through June.  Books will be ordered in August and dispersed once received.
