The Best Short Story Mysteries Since Encyclopedia Brown


Lemony Snicket’s new book File Under: 13 Suspicious Incidents has puzzling mysteries that will keep you on the edge of your seat and will leave you wanting more!

Lemony Snicket is a detective. Even though the small town of Stain’d-by-the-Sea where he fights crime is half abandoned, there seems to be a lot of strange mishaps. Snicket faces odd cases including the kidnapping of a dog, claims of supernatural appearances, and the theft of blueberry pies. Although Snicket is only a kid, more people come to him with mysteries than the two police officers in town. The officers are old, and as dumb as a bucket of nails.  

Lemony Snicket’s advanced vocabulary gives the mysteries a unique twist and makes them challenging to solve. This book has thirteen mini stories about Snicket’s crime filled life in Stain’d-by-the-Sea. But beware, these suspicious incidents are incredibly hard to solve and you might find yourself looking in the back of the book for the solutions pretty quick.  I was only able to solve two out of the thirteen mysteries, but you might be able to do better! Pick up a copy yourself and see if you can solve Snicket’s mysteries!
