A melancholy Dr. Broth, professor emeritus of non-Euclidean, paleolinguistic astrohistoriography, strolls the topiary gardens of a campus arboretum. He has just returned from a conference on the Hyde-body problem, and his luggage -- one bulging attaché case -- did not appear at the baggage claim. Unfortunately, it contained the only copy of his just-finished manuscript, his life's work...lost! Now join the delightful, puzzling, and hilarious adventures of Dr. Broth, the humble gardener Ollie, and their more-or-less trusted companion McGuffin (a time-traveling alpaca), as they hurtle through time and space in search of Dr. Broth's treasured manuscript. Visit postapocalyptic Chicago, Mercury, ancient Greece, revolutionary France, New York a few years ago, the Peru of the Incas, and a Scotland about to be overrun by clones, among many other places neither you nor any reasonably sane person would look for lost luggage. Of course, McGuffin is never too sure where, or rather when, his time traveling will land him -- and you won't be either as these marvelous characters dash off into the mind-boggling unknown. With 80 original puzzles varying wildly and unpredictably in difficulty and format, everyone from brain-teased veterans to young intrepid detectives will find a treasure trove of worthy challenges in these pages. Quite simply, as Dr. Broth would agree, there's never been a puzzle adventure like it. Let the search begin!
