    I wonder if there is a meaning to the word "due" being used instead of "do"?

    Starting at the beginning will not due this time........due instead of do, secantroam, 53, mission impossible. Sure is looking more like a winner for this chapter late next spring.

    I wish this one had some punctuation. As written, the "due" part of this clue could be read to imply either (a) "due" is important because it stands out or (b) "not due" implies that "due" is NOT important.
    So the due part doesn't seem to be actionable, even if you did think you knew what it was referring to, because the "not" in the wording is ambiguous as to how/if it relates to "due".

    Enjoying these clues in general though. They do seem a little more subtle than the last chapter, which ought to reward people who dig deep.

    Still haven't found C2's J and Q, although I'm starting to get more comfortable with the idea that they actually are there, obscured in some manner. I can see a number of places where their location is hinted at. I've been unable to decipher that part of the symbolism though to actually pinpoint where precisely is being pointed at. This book has a lot of secrets.

    'Due' = 'Do'

    'C' = 'Sea' (First word of chapter/last word of chapter)

    Something with first/last appears to be going on.

    It's good thinking doc.

    But it gets back to what I posted above. The clue is "NOT due". On the surface, that may imply that do=due is NOT important, might it not? Therefore the reference "not due" (clearly a homophone for "do") may be indicating that similar homophones (i.e. c=sea) are NOT important either, and in fact are red herrings.

    Doc,
    I am curious the 'Due' = 'Do'. What is the first/last conection between the two? Also have you considered Dew=Due=Do?
    Just thinking while drinking a soda.

    Lobster, I was also looking for the J and Q and might have found them. Some of the clues hinted at going back and forth. If you go back to the boy's story and continued on down the left hand side, you can find them. Not sure if this is right or not but it's a thought.

    Fairly straightforward, I think. Just a homophone, and a reference to 'C' = 'SEA'

    Just substitute the right word in the sequence: Starting at the beginning will not do this time.

    In other words, start at the end. First = Last.

    As far as the 'J' and 'Q' from Chapter 2--they're flat-out missing. Don't try to fill in the blanks with something that isn't there. We need to figure out why they were missing in the first place.

    You will never find JQ in the text nor will you get a response from the author on a valid explanation which is why I will not purchase the book again this year and give it as gifts
