Six murders. One hundred pages. Millions of possible combinations... but
only one is correct. Can you solve Torquemada's murder mystery?

In 1934, the Observer's cryptic crossword compiler, Edward Powys Mathers (aka Torquemada),
released a novel that was simultaneously a murder mystery and the most
fiendishly difficult literary puzzle ever written.

The pages have been printed in an
entirely haphazard order, but it is possible - through logic and intelligent
reading - to sort the pages into the only correct order, revealing six murder
victims and their respective murderers.

Only two puzzlers have ever solved
the mystery of Cain's Jawbone: do you
have what it takes to join their ranks?






































Please note: this puzzle is extremely difficult and not for
the faint-hearted.
