any ideas on how to crack to code for Q2

3. The first trick for me on Q1/Q2 was finding the right kind of cipher. Luckily for me, my companion book had just shown up and there was a strong clue in it as to the right cipher.

## cipher

Are we talking about the three letter kind?

5. I don't think so... Do you have the companion book?

Yes, I do and have reread it over and over looking for something.

7. There is a certain letter that pops out more than others in Chapter 8. In the companion book, there is a cipher with an admittedly lame description that mentions using that same letter, which is a big key to determining the cipher type. If you figure out the cipher but need some help figuring out what he's describing, PM me!

I thought I had tried every which way for a rotate cipher with no luck. Will go back to the drawing board!

I could not find any reference to this, so I bounced around and solved it.
