    from the email:

    Because of the development with selling the eagle and the onset of summer we have decided to take a brief break from releasing clues. As of June 3rd nobody has submitted a correct answer for chapter 2. Our next set of clues that we will be releasing in August will contain parts of the winning sequence, so with the clues already given we anticipate another winner coming up in the fall. We will continue to release answers to submissions within the 2 week period of them being sent.

    Not to worry, I have or will have solved chapter 2 before August. The question is, will I have to wait until the fall to claim the eagle?

    Go out and enjoy the sun. But not at the equator, because that will make you mad.

    I don't mind... I've been waiting about 2 years for the first clues to come, so I might as well be a bit more patient... the good thing is that we can go and enjoy summer now, not having to click on FB all the time

    I suppose we shouldn't think too hard about these clues. Just enjoy the book.

    Chapter 1:

    The following paragraph appears to me to describe the Space Needle (revolving restaurant key).

    Brad felt his face redden a little, but the old man’s brown eyes were twinkling, (stars=space) and it was clear that he meant no harm. Brad forced a tight smile and held out his hand to shake the old man’s. Brad Martin. I’m not much of a Coopie, like the lady said, but I did come up here to follow up on this story. He held up the newspaper clipping. She sure got me on that one.
    The wrinkled corner of the old man’s mouth turned up in a grin, and he squeezed Brad’s hand with surprising strength. (the space needle is known for its surprising design strength) Charlie Proctor the third, but everybody just calls me Chuck in these here parts. Nice to meet ya. May I? (May 1 is May Day, known for May Poles. A good visual clue at how the space needle looks).


    Was it intended? Who knows. Was it part of a solution? I can't find one, but again, who knows. Fact is, it's interesting.


    Then we have this prose in Chapter 2:

    "Maxie found that exciting and wanted to come"
    "
    Normally as amateur detectives we work as a team, but we let her come..."
    "There were several places where a sizeable package..."
    "Babs chimed in, closing her eyes in ecstasy"

    Ron's dirty mind? My dirty mind? Clues, or just interesting writing? Who knows.

    Elsewhere in this book there is what appears to be a particularly gross allusion to the planet Uranus and lots and lots and lots of other hidden stuff.

    Say what you want about the clues and the practical solvability of the hunt, but the writing in this book is a fascinating read.
