    Maybe the numbers are buried in various Dunkin Donuts and I-Hops across the land!

    For those heading to Ohio to check out that potential digsite, Gus is saying they should be clearly marked:
    The Clock Without A Face - news - QUESTIONS ANSWERED, ANSWERSquackQUESTIONED

    If you think you've found the location of one of the buried numbers, how will you know the exact spot to start digging? Is it marked somehow? April 19, 2010 | jewel seeker

    That's interesting about the timeline "12:30 til 4:00ish"

    I was wondering how the old ladies had been working on the puzzle book for two years during the time it was being written?

    OK.

    Can you imagine buried treasure in a cemetery! (possibly, normal digging place.)

    People driving in with shovels? Starting to dig while auntie Sally's service is going on across the way? (other people digging in the shrubbery may be a diversion from being upset about a family death.)

    I live in the area right across the state line and spoke to the township gal in the office, the township cares for the cemetery. And she said the township knows nothing about allowing ANYONE other than the staff to dig holes on the property, much less around their nicely manicured "eye".

    Seems to me that is too easy a solve for such an elaborate puzzle book. Lots else going on within those pages.

    I will be driving around there soon just looking at things since I know the area well and can possibly spot something out of the ordinary.

    Please people, don't upset auntie Sally's family. The neighbors of the cemetery keep close eyes on the traffic there and the local police are very, very bored most of the time.

    They would love, love, love to tuck this story under their belts. Arresting treasure hunters from around the country for digging in their local cemetery.

    Onward. Let's solve some more clues. If I hear any interesting local arrest stories I will post them here.

    Given the blackboard on the first floor I'm almost thinking the author pulled a Stadther and put them in trees. I just hope he didn't continue to pull a Stadther and make an unsolvable hunt that goes into bankruptcy.

    Do you think the numbers are actually buried, or will a treasure hunter simply find directions on how to obtain the number?

    Buried. Buried. In the ground. There is no one to obtain them from. Emeralds were stolen, stashed, and now it is up to you to unstash them.

    don't want to disrupt the tone of this board, but this book immediately reminded me of the book MAZE by Christopher Manson which came out in 1985, when I was 4. MAZE has proven to be one of the most important and influential books in my life, and has shaped both my dreams and the way I view reality. No lie. My family drafted charts on giant tracing paper to try and figure out the secrets to MAZE for years, with little success. Years later, I figured more out, but the contest was long over. Now I hope it is time to do this kind of thinking again! I hope you know about MAZE, Agustus Twintig, because it may behoove you to know that if this crime has been pulled off well, it may take years to solve.

    Mr. Ruddy: There is a proud tradition of books this may remind you of, and Maze is a shining example among them. That said, Maze was a puzzle, with a contest, with a prize. Words like "puzzle," "contest," and "prize" are a mockery of all the cases I have confidentially assisted lo these many years. In the mystery currently afoot, there is no authority for you mail guesses to. There is no prize funded by some insurance company. There is no expiration date. There is no fine print. There are no rules.
    Rather, there are a dozen emeralds scattered across the country, waiting to be unearthed. They will belong to whoever comes upon them first. If an escaped circus monkey stumbles upon an emerald and fashions it into a handsome cuff-link, that monkey will have "won" the "contest." If Halliburton pulps the entire state of South Dakota and sifts the wreckage, searching for emerald residue, Halliburton may end up with one of the precious numbers. And if a sharp-eyed, wise-minded reader studies the clues, plans an expedition, and brings a shovel, he or she may just be able to find an emerald first, defeating the combined efforts of Halliburton, circus monkeys, and even perhaps RD himself. I urge you to make haste.

    Just playing...

    Second floor, Krieger Manzarek...Manzarek-Krieger, used to play with The Doors. Second floor is all doors...

    I think I either need to take a break or I'm on to something.

    I also get the feeling there are 39 clues...

    I'm not happy about the plan to pass out clues like candy at the various book tour sites. That's simply not fair, and also I worry over the number of people privy to the locations of the emeralds, who are also planning to pique buying interest by revealing clues to the locations. People are people, and the motivations to be 'generous' can be intense at a book tour, just to pick one human failing/virtue.

    I wrote two emails to the author, expressing this opinion. To actually plan to give out extra clues at the book-promotion tour sites is a mistake. It doesn't imbue the hunters with confidence that the playing field is on the level.
