Case #1 – Derailed:

  • The Case
    • Two men are seated side by side in a commuter train, one dressed in gray and the other in black. The man in gray hands something to the man in black. At the next stop, the man in black pulls out a gun with a silencer, shoots the man in gray dead, and leaves the train.
  • The Mystery
    • What did the man in gray hand the man in black? Why did the man in black kill the man in gray?

Case #2 – Postage Due:

  • The Case
    • P.J. Etherton’s one-of-a-kind postage stamp was being auctioned in his library. The stamp was first inspected by the world’s foremost expert, and then passed around to all of the bidders. When the price soared to a million dollars, one of the bidders, Brutus B, asked to inspect it again. Looking through a magnifying glass, he announced, “This isn’t the 1867 Z grill. It’s an F grill–almost identical, but worth only a hundred bucks!”
    • The expert agreed. “This isn’t the stamp I inspected. A switch has been made!”

      Immediately, the security guard left the room and called the police. Everyone was frisked and the room searched thoroughly, but the prized stamp was nowhere to be found. The puzzling crime made headlines!

      “I know Brutus stole it,” P.J. Etherton growled. “He’s a known thief and forger. A collector will pay a pretty price for it, even if he can never show it off in public.”
  • The Mystery
    • What happened to the stamp? What is the perpetrator’s plan?

Case #3 – Good Help Is Hard To Find:

  • The Case
    • Old Harry Ashton’s young wife and the housekeeper are together in the downstairs library. Suddenly they hear a scream from Harry’s bathroom upstairs. The housekeeper drops her dust mop and runs up the stairs, followed a second later by the wife. Both run through Harry’s bedroom into his adjoining bathroom. Harry is on the tile floor, a fatal wound in his chest. There is no knife in the bathroom or the bedroom.
    • Later that night, the housekeeper sneaks upstairs and recovers the weapon hidden in a hall closet. The police eventually discover the sequence of events and arrest the housekeeper–but not for murder.
  • The Mystery
    • Who killed Harry? How did the weapon get from the bathroom to the closet? What was the housekeeper’s role?
