Mysteries to Die For: Season 6
In the English language, there are a few, very special words that can function as nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs. One word goes further, creating new words from old.
That word is JACK.
The brandy distilled from hard cider was the first applejack, the word now synonymous with a children’s cereal. There is the nefarious one-eyed jack of playing card fame. Animals from the jackdaw to the jackrabbit to the elusive jackalope roam all the ranges. There are the ever growing number of people named Jack, birth named or nicknamed, heroes to villains. The way the word “jack” is used in the English language is truly unique, inventive, and too numerous for us to count.
For your puzzle solving pleasure, Mysteries to Die For presents: Things That Go Jack in the Night.
Pepper jack cheese. Lumberjack. Wolfman Jack. Jack be Nimble. One-eyed Jack. Jackass. Jacking Off. Jackalope. Jack-in-the-box. Jackknife. Jackpot. Audio jack.
Twelve stories arranged for you to deduce the truth. Twelve “jacks” that should definitely not be taken at face value. It’s a race between you and the detective to find the killer amid the jack in the night.
Hott Book Review of Mysteries to Die For presents: Things That Go Jack in the Night:
I’ve devoured short mystery books since I was a child. I always loved the Two-Minute Mysteries and other similar books I could stash in my bag to rescue me from boredom or the dreaded art of socializing.
So I was thrilled a few years ago when my favorite podcast, Mysteries to Die For, did a series of classic mysteries that were edited a bit and then performed on their show. I really enjoyed listening along and trying to guess the culprit, or answer, before Jack. (Not that it’s fair at all to Jack, since he’s TRYING to entertain us with his musical expertise, follow along in an intricate mystery, and solve a mystery to boot!)
As that podcast has developed they’ve stopped performing the classics and have morphed that initial series into new mysteries by current authors. Still just as fun and engaging, but ones I may not have read or watched previously. (Can you say, that rings a bell?!)
While I do absolutely love the podcast and am a faithful listener I was excited to see that the new mysteries are available to read, as well. Because, let’s face it, if I’m listening to a podcast, it’s because I need to be doing something else and 100% of my attention can’t be on the mystery, as much as I’d prefer it to be.
I sat down with this fun book, I grabbed a Kindle copy, and didn’t look up. Even though I’d listened to several of the episodes, these mysteries were all fun, interesting, and palpable. They had clear suspects and clues, and while some were easier to discern than others none felt like they didn’t fit. (I do hate it when I’m left with questions I think should have been answered.)
If you love short mysteries or just want to try out a new mystery author don’t miss Mysteries to Die For: Season 6 Things That Go Jack In The Night!
