Ominous shadows. Dark, rain-drenched streets. A hard-boiled detective in his trench coat. That's the magic and atmosphere of film noir—and the fun behind this unique, interconnected book of puzzles. Meet Larry Logic, a small-town cop with detective skills to rival Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe—except Larry solves crimes using keen logical reasoning instead of his fists. Solvers can test their own abilities as they help Larry crack his cases. Each group of puzzles tells a mini-story in which all the answers combine into one final whodunit. See if you have what it takes to solve alongside Larry Logic!
