This is true: 12 emerald-studded numbers, each handmade and one-of-a-kind, have been buried in 12 holes across this fine land. These treasures will belong to whoever digs them up first. The question: Where to dig? The only path to the answer: Solve the riddle of The Clock Without a Face, McSweeney’s newest book by the author, Gus Twintig.
The call comes in from the shadowy Ternky Tower: 13 robberies, one on each floor, all the way up to the penthouse, where obnoxious importer Bevel Ternky has been relieved of the legendary Emerald Chroniker, his priceless, ancient clock. Readers must conduct their own investigations, scouring detailed illustrations for hidden clues and knotty puzzles. All the answers can be found within these 13 floors: whodunit and how . . . and where they are now.
Twelve treasures sleep in the soil. The race is on!
