    Found a 1936 first edition of this in a box of old books in a flea market in Maastricht. Though I'd never seen a copy before, I knew what it was instantly, having recently read a blog about it. My luggage was already full of books and souvenirs; I left it and resumed sightseeing. And over the course of the day walked by that stall three more times, eyeing and pawing the book each time, and finally buying it after haggling the vendor down to 8 euros (copies online are around 100).How to rate a bo [...]

    This was a fun mystery that I found while I was weeding the fiction collection at the library. The book is a collection of news clippings, evidence envelopes, police reports, photos, and other bits - the reader is encouraged to read the all the reports and notes, look in the envelopes, and try to solve the mystery along with the detective.

    The book was put together well. Was fun to see photos of the evidence & crime scene, read the police reports & detective's interviews and solve the crime. My suspicions were correctjust didn't see the why :D

    Ho scoperto l'esistenza di questo libro leggendo la nota dell'editore contenuta all'interno di "Acqua in bocca", il romanzo in forma epistolare scritto a quattro mani da Andrea Camilleri e Carlo Lucarelli. Murder off Miami è stato indicato da Camilleri come l'ispirazione per la scelta della cifra stilistica del romanzo dei due autori; si tratta infatti di un giallo del 1936 steso in forma di dossier poliziesco. Io che vado pazza per queste cose e che prendo per oro colato tutto ciò che dice Ca [...]

    Found that book in a book exchange and took it with me on a whim. Today I finally had time and freinds over to try it and that book made for a nice evening.The evidence presentation was very atmospheric. Only the riddle was a bit to easy for me and my roleplaying steeled friends. I am astonished that the book managed to age more than 30 years and find its way to these bookcrossing shelves without anyone before us opening the solution chapter, which we had to cut open with a pair of scissors.

    Neat to see how the whole 'non-traditional book'/'books with things in them' idea began.It really is a case file with no personality or behavioral comments, so it reads very dry.While the insight into 1930s society was interesting, the solution was clear to me very early on.Recommended for those who will appreciate the origins of the 'book plus.'

    We're not talking great literature here, but this book with its physical clues and police-file format is just a great load of fun. There were at least three of these reproduction editions available at the time and now I wish had bought all of them. But, you know, they were expensive and I didn't have the cash to throw around. . .
