Friendly hints and fascinating history accompany every fiendish puzzle, so that—as you wrestle with wordplay, grapple with geometry, and scrabble for survival—you’ll meet whip-smart thinkers of yore, eccentric novelists, and a poodle with allegedly supernatural powers. Will you make it out with your puzzling pride intact?
