The Manual of Detection - Jedediah Berry

Judging a book by its cover can be dangerous business, but The Manual of Detection is a serendipitous instance where image and product are equally remarkable. When Charles Unwin is promoted from Clerk to Detective, we, the readers, are whisked along on the handlebars of his bicycle with little explanation and only the standard issue Manual of Detection as a guide. From the first line, we are enveloped in a world where details may be clues, clues may be red herrings, and red herrings may be the most important of all. This book is a fantastically imagined dream to be read over and over again. So come along for the ride.
