Amityville Horror

“Well, Smith,” said Officer Jones, recently promoted to head of the Amity Police Department, tells you. “we’ve got another case for you.  A message from a new criminal group. They call themselves the Witty Mafia. They attempt to obscure their crimes using riddles and puzzles. Here’s the latest one.”

CASE:

Thirteen Amazonian artifacts had disappeared from the Natural History Museum.
The small carved fish were worth a fortune, and could be hidden nearly anywhere.

LOCATION:

Evidence and leads from interrogations led the police to the public library, where the artifacts were being hidden.

EVIDENCE AND INFORMATION:

We know that the evidence is inside a book.

The puzzle that was left for the police:

Let this note be your reference,
Your guide for where to look.
You don’t have to search the
world for a book.
You may feel heartbreak,
Like you lost your first beau,
Just remember that old cliché,
And you’ll know just where to go.

You ponder for a while, and then a smile slowly spreads across your face. This smile leads to a hearty laugh.

“Elementary,” you say. “This witty Mafia should be applauded. But they let it slip. The artifacts are hidden:”

Where?

    Probably an encyclopedia/world book (search the world). Then look in volume s or c (Old cliche – other fish in the sea)

  • Dude

    The old saying is ‘there is more than one fish in the Sea. Look in world book encyclopedia under the letter C and there it is.
