Readers around the world love mystery stories. One reason mysteries are

so popular is that reading them is a kind of game. Readers try to find

out why something happened or who did something. The mysteries below are

solved by a police detective named Dr. Haledjian. As you read each

story, you will watch Dr. Haledjian study the problem. You will learn

all that he learns. See if you're as good a detective as Dr. Haledjian.


The Case of the Telltale Clock


Police found the body of Buffalo Fenn in his apartment. The electric

cord of his clock was tied around his neck. The clock had stopped at



Police Inspector Winters had Pete Skones, Buffalo's longtime enemy,

arrested for questioning.


Pete claimed that on the morning of Buffalo's murder, he had been

playing cards with friends. The friends said he never left the hotel

room where they had been playing all night.


A week passed with no new clues to the murder. Then Nick the Nose went

to see Inspector Winters, who had Dr. Haledjian in his office.


Nick grinned. "I know something", he said, "I know someone who saw

Buffalo's murder. Broadway Ben."


"Ben," said Nick, "had a room down die hall from Buffalo. He was passing

Buffalo's room when he saw Buffalo's door was open a little. He didn't

hear anything at first except the ticking of Buffalo's clock. And

suddenly the ticking stopped.


"Then Ben heard a man scream. He hid in a doorway at the end of the

hall. Two minutes later he saw Pete Skones run out of Buffalo's room and

race downstairs.


"Ben was so scared after he read what happened to Buffalo that he hasn't

looked at a clock for a week. He's hiding, but I can take you to him if

you pay me $5,000."


"Don't pay, Inspector Winters," said Dr. Haledjian. "Nick is lying."


How did Dr. Haledjian know Nick was lying?


The Case of the Murdered Brother


Dr. Haledjian finished examining the body of Mike Page, which lay on die

red carpet of his fashionable home.


"Mr. Page was beaten to death with the handle of that gun," the famous

detective said.


The gun had been found near die body. Sheriff Monahan was carefully

examining it for fingerprints.


"I've telephoned his brother at his office," die sheriff said. "I only

told him he'd better hurry home. I hate the job of telling him that his

brother has been killed. Will you do it?"


"All right," Haledjian agreed as he watched die body being carried to an

ambulance. Then he sat down to wait for John Page.


The ambulance had driven off to the hospital when John Page rushed

through the front door. "What happened? Where's Mike?"


"I am sorry to have to tell you this. He was murdered about two hours

ago," said Haledjian. "Your cook found the body in the living room and

telephoned die police."


"I cant find fingerprints on the gun that was used to murder him,"

interrupted the sheriff, holding the gun wrapped in a cloth. "I'll have

the laboratory examine it thoroughly."


Page stared at the outline of die gun through the cloth. Suddenly he

grabbed the sheriff’s arm. "Find the monster who beat Mike to death.
