The World's Most Fiendishly Difficult Literary Puzzle
Edward Powys Mathers (aka Torquemada) wrote Cain's Jawbone in 1934, and to this day, only 3 people have ever solved the 6 murder mysteries hidden within its hundred pages. So, nope, calling it The World's Most Fiendishly Difficult Literary Puzzle is not an exaggeration.
Of course, the "puzzle" part of that statement represents more than just an expertly-written storyline and strategically placed clues. Those 100 pages of Cain's Jawbone? They arrive printed in "an entirely haphazard order." You'll have to pull out and resort every one of them, sifting through millions of possible combinations, if you hope to solve the crimes, and earn yourself a beyond-the-grave high-five from Torquemada.
And, sure, you can team up with your friends and go after Cain's Jawbone together.
As long as your friends are the humans Cornelius and Victor, not the bots at OpenAI.
