This book is great fun for pencil puzzlers such as myself. I like that it uses the same characters for each puzzle and assigns a character to the reader as well. It uses graphics, maps, and extraordinary charts to assist in solving which I like much better than the standard logic chart because it keeps it interesting. In the story it separates the puzzles into 12 "weekends" which will keep the reader on a timeline if they are the type to set the book down for months at a time. On a scale of 1 (easy) to 5 (expert) the puzzles in this book range from 2.5 to 4 in my opinion. I did however, fly through this one too quickly to get long term satisfaction from it. I would welcome a sequel.
