Things are not always what they seem - until they are, then you might wish you had never asked!

Praise For…

"Martineau introduces 11 unexplained phenomena, ranging from alien invaders and UFOs to crop circles and spontaneous human combustion. Cases are introduced via narrative spreads followed by companion pages of case file notes that include evidence, witness statements, locations, and current explanatory theories. ...this should have great browser appeal."
-- Booklist

"This energetic, hands-on sleuthing primer provides readers with facts, prompts, and visuals to hone their investigative skills as they speculate on intriguing and inexplicable phenomena. Martineau follows succinct yet conversational descriptions of known information surrounding each of 11 mysteries... Among the alleged incidents examined are stories of Bigfoot encounters, benign specters, cursed objects, UFO sightings, incidents of spontaneous human combustion, and unsolved disappearances. ... Bundling together mystery and history, this volume offers armchair detectives a thought-provoking tutorial on deduction and conjecture."
