Over half a million copies sold Six murders. One hundred pages. Millions of possible combinations but only one is correct. Can you solve Torquemadas murder mystery? In 1934, the Observers 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. Dare you take it on? Please note: this puzzle is extremely difficult and not for the faint-hearted.

Övrig information

Edward Powys Mathers (1892 1939) introduced the cryptic crossword to Britain in 1924 through the pages of the Observer. Known as Torquemada, he was acknowledged as a brilliant translator and a critic specialising in crime fiction. In 1934 he published a selection of his puzzles under the title The Torquemada Puzzle Book the final hundred pages of which contained the novel-cum-puzzle Cains Jawbone. The book is being re-issued with the assistance of The Laurence Sterne Trust and Patrick Wildgust, the curator of Shandy Hall.
