“A RIEDEL Clue” – One B!


My Kind Of Mystery” sleuths, here we are in round two!  If I gave a book title or major prompt, it would be an internet search instead of a riddle.  Rather than wait for clues to make us certain;  these are intended to be worked out.  :-)  Most thought my final riddle last year was hard;  about an author who was struck down as a pedestrian.  I tested it on Google.

If you reworded it simply to search “author hit by a car”;  articles with Stephen King’s name came up immediately.  E-mail any guesses that come to mind:  AlyshaeB(at)hotmail(dot)com. Being incorrect has no effect on our game and I say right away whether or not you’re close.

India Flag Stamp

*******  Which mystery legend, débuting in 1910, was born in India?  *******

The next pieces I’ll add is that this person, who is no longer living, was considered British.  This stamp  commemorated India’s independence from England, in 1947.  We were all wiggling free.  ;)

Their birth name is not the one this author used.  The one we know is a pseudonym.  That helps fact-checking at least, when you are on the right track.

Lastly, If you were thinking an Indian or Hindu author:  steer in another direction.  This is a popular, mainstream, English language author.

This might not seem like a great deal of detail but I suspect it will bring you to the right wavelength.  There is one clue on our post that is a valuable giveaway!  One I hadn’t planned, which isn’t within the text.

Any ideas?  Does this clarify something you were pondering?  If not, I promise the third clue in 48 hours, will be plainer.  It is my guests who decide if puzzles are easy or tricky.  It’s been hot around Manitoba, so the next game might as well be a breeze!  ;)  As easy as possible without being a one-click internet search.

Sunday, July 19th is my cat, Spirit’s eleventh birthday!  I think of our kitties as my children, so join us in wishing him well.  :)

If round three is necessary, I will leave a more telling clue on that special day.  Perhaps by then, the rest of our group will see our riddle is running.  Yes Neer, in our first game your country is highlighted!  It is beautiful.  The way schools are way up on mountainsides in unbelievable.

    Hi Carolyn

    Have sent you a mail and hope it is the correct answer.

    Yeah, schools on hill-tops and mountain-tops and rosie cheeked children playfully climbing up (while our old bones groan) are a beautiful sight.

    • You are correct! You must have tried hard to ensure a clue related to your country wasn’t missed! People can ask comment with questions or clarification if they like and e-mail any number of guesses. There won’t be any more rounds, because someone has solved this riddle with the clues that you have. Lots of time for people to join your name in the draw until Sunday!

      Are you a teacher or a Mother? Are the mountains in the cities too or just towns? That looks like a really high altitude country. I guess everything has to balance on it.
