    I guess if I want a silver eagle I should be scanning through text... but instead right now I am finding myself playing connect-the-dots with Q.17 sudoku puzzle.

    I think...the starting come from two clues.
    To begin, skip over then go back
    The word OveR happens four times. Maybe its not that hard.
    A clue is hidden within a line of kryptos... Which partner Slowly or flicker or other?
    Judge a man by his questions.. Two things to get.. Man and questions.
    In fact, I'm sure men repeat questions...refusing to give up. The curse of the Dutchman has struck again.

    I suspect this will be won soon. Using my approach(es) and having a good idea about where to start, the number of possible remaining combinations are very limited thanks to the key restrictions given. And I suspect that that goes for pretty much any method that anyone is using at this point.

    If someone out there actually has the right general method (and they have avoided errors), they should have this won relatively soon.

    There are only five times that "this" happens.

    I really don't want "this" to be those five horizontal lines spread throughout the chapter, doesn't sit right with me for some reason.

    I had a very quick glance at the chapter today and I believe there is an occurrence of five times between Mick and Nadine where they answer each others questions... with a question.

    I know, I know, it sounds silly... just throwing it out there. Much to my disappointment it will most likely end up being those horizontal lines... sigh.

    I noticed the five lines too, but I don't think its that.

    My problem is that no matter what method I use, I can never get all of the clues to fit, just most of them.

    I had a bit of a lightbulb moment this morning. Think I haven't been taking an easy enough approach... may take a while though to find the right sequence!

    With so many different methodologies I'm now thinking the answer isn't easier than we think.its been almost a year now so I guess it can't be that easy

    The verbage "you think" is found on page 70 but not sure if that clue was a location clue or meant to mean something else. Regardless, it was insulting and should have never been used.

    Any ideas about the last clue about "themes"? ... definition of a theme is a repeating idea throughout a story and there is lots of repetition in the text. Kind of links in to that old clue about "not doubling up on it".

    Was the theme clue referring to the storyline theme or the theme of the clues so far? See, even the clues have no clarity which is why its been a year on this chapter.
