Hello everybody!

Another day, another email from the Mystery Man!  Here are the clues:

1) Our beloved detective has a cousin with a stutter!

2) That’s not a real clergyman!

3) Inspired by Brown’s? 

Figure out the clues, and look for the right discussion thread!   Remember, please don't post on that thread, but keep contributing to other threads.  Good luck!  Please, talk about Christie on the discussion boards, but no spoilers!

    I'm glad that you enjoyed the story (we will not mention the title, of course), Graybear!  These clues are meant to be fairly clear for people who've read the tales, but even if you haven't, you can figure it out with a little creative searching on the Internet.

    This is the first time I have been able to join in on a mystery man game (being on late shifts this week is helping!) and I'm loving it.  There are some holes in my AC knowledge but this is allowing me to fill in some of the blanks.

    There's going to be a mix in the clue difficulty levels.  Some days are going to be more challenging than others.
  • This is great !!!  :)

    This is from one of my favorites. I see a commonality in the found clues but no idea how they relate to and point to the final answer!!! Love the challenge!

    I know what the book is, but I can't find where to look. I'm a bit stupid and these sorts of puzzles. The picture of the soldiers from the first day is the only one I've managed to find.

    a clue please
    We shall not hunt together again, my friend. Our first hunt was here — and our last ... They were good days. Yes, they have been good days...

    So, I am pretty sure I know what story is being referred to here, but I have looked on every single thread that refers to the book, and no soldier boy. I found the other three soldiers so I can't decide if I have the story wrong or not. After having given it some thought, I think I know how to phrase this question to see if I can confirm if I have the right story or not.
    GKCfan, I believe the story in question is a short story that makes specific reference to the most famous character created by the author you are a fan of. Am I right? I searched for the story title on this website but that search produced no results, so I have searched through every thread that mentions the title of the book it comes from but still nothing. Suggestions?
