The Scotland Yard Puzzle Book

The Scotland Yard Puzzle Book

Pit your wits against the brilliant minds of Scotland Yard, from the bestselling author of Bletchley Park Brainteasers, Sinclair McKay.

The mist sits low and thick just below the London sky line… Big Ben looms in the distant darkness… A lone figure, overcoat pulled tightly around him, is walking with purpose, pipe in mouth, hat sitting low on his head. An amber light shines out from a lamppost. Mystery hangs heavy in the air…


There is no image as timeless and fascinating as that of the 19th Century Scotland Yard detective. Their purpose: to uncover the crime and bring the criminal to justice, simple. But their work involves some of the hardest problem-solving imaginable and requires the highest levels of mental agility. Can you solve the puzzles these feats of detection have inspired?

Since it opened its doors in 1829, Scotland Yard has used the science of detection to solve the most macabre of murders and catch the most audacious of thieves. The Scotland Yard Puzzle Book takes a look through the history of this famous institution and recreates some of the most complex conundrums its detectives have ever faced. Technology can now shine a light on some of the most difficult cases, but the analytical mind needed to crack the clues remains as essential as ever. Do you have what it takes to be a Scotland Yard detective?
