For those sharp-witted sleuths who braved and bested the rigors of The Baffle Book, presented here are 15 further brain-teasing miniature investigations, brought to you by Messrs. Wren and McKay - puzzles sure to set your Meerschaum smoking and your suspicious mind abuzz.

Once again our intrepid authors invite readers to dust off their deerstalkers and join them on a series of old-fashioned mysteries. Each case is presented as a brief dossier studded with clues (and the occasional red herring) and followed by a handful of pointed questions designed to lead armchair investigators to the solution.

A simple diagram, a charred scrap of paper, the tire tracks of a team of bank robbers - so little to go on, but just enough for an observant, dedicated gumshoe. Follow the clues, build your case, and expose the culprit! (As always, the answers are printed in the back - upside-down to deter you from giving up too easily.)

[The creative team of Lassiter Wren & Randle McKay, 'Originators of the Detective Puzzle Form', flourished in the period 1927-1930. Their Baffles were an immensely popular feature of Clues, a detective monthly from Street & Smith, publishers of The Shadow, Doc Savage, and other pulps. They were also the authors of Master Strokes of Crime Detection and other books designed to make the reader 'Observe, Deduce, and Reason Out' (the Wren-McKay mantra)].
