Overview

Everybody on the Vineyard knows Sam. Though it makes him blush when folks tell him so, he's a local hero, the chief of Martha's Vineyard All-Island Regional Police Department. So dedicated is he to his profession, he's been known to ferret out crime even when it doesn't exist...which leaves him mildly embarassed and chuckling to himself.

Yet Sam has no special abilities - except the basic ones of creativity, observation, and logic. Which are all you need - plus a pencil - to solve the twenty-four brand-new picture mysteries in this fifth episode of the notorious Crime and Puzzlement series. Of course, a sense of humor helps, too, especially when trying to unravel cases like "The Peek-a-Boo Girl," "The Night of the Crabs," and "Incident on the Ferry." Most of all these cleverly devised capers take place on the near mythical island of Martha's Vineyard, longtime home of Paul Karasik. But anyone can have fun solving them -whether you're from Paris or Peoria!
