Julian  Press - Find the Culprit – The Curse of the Black Marksman


Four new cases to solve – the waiting is over for all of Press’s fans!

The series:
Join in and become a detective! With the gripping cases of the Liquorice Gang, sleuths dive into the world of guess-as-you-go crime stories. Every single page requires you to look closely and compare what you know if you are to discover the clues crucial to solving the cases set out in the short texts and detailed illustrations. Excitement and the fun of unravelling mysteries are guaranteed, even for less experienced readers!

At the opening of Dr. Rubinstein’s last will, the relatives are unpleasantly surprised: the message the deceased imparts is that the will first needs to be found. The detectives and the readers have a lot of searching to do until finally the inheritance is found in the form of gold coins. But according to the will found with them, they don’t go to the relatives, but rather to the city animal shelter, the scene of the second case. Here the Liquorice Band is witness to the theft of a spotted dog. The detectives need to track down the perpetrator before they can discover the research lab hidden in a beauty salon.
The third case presents a nasty environmental scandal. A bicycle repair shop doesn’t seem to be kosher somehow. It’s also odd that the owner has just become engaged to the daughter of the owner of the brewery whose label is on the barrel full of toxic substances just found in the woods.
In the fourth case a quiver with five black arrows is stolen, and this reminds the prince of the curse of the black crossbowman. When a black arrow lands in a pumpkin directly in front of the prince’s nose, there’s no holding back the Liquorice Gang.
