Never Judge a Book …

Everyone remembers Paul Drake from Perry Mason–the Paul Drake Detective Agency. Well, many years ago Paul had to hire a new assistant. He had three candidates and he decided to give them a little quiz. He said, “Look, Guys, there’s a crime that needs to be solved and there’s a clue in one of the public libraries in Bakersfield. The clue is stuck inside a book, between pages 165 and 166. ” And two of the guys jump up and bolt out the door. The third guy just sits there. Drake says, “You got the job.” Why did he get the job? What did he know that the other two ding-a-lings didn’t know?

  • Ruthie Jean

    He never told them the name of the book.

  • Julie

    The odd numbered page is always on the right side, so the clue would have to be either between pages 164 and 165 or 166 and 167.

  • You’re correct, Julie!

    It would be impossible to hide anything inbetween those page numbers since they’d be on opposite sides of the same page.

    You’re today’s winner!!!
