The Book of Unexplained Mysteries
Written by Will Pearson (Weidenfeld & Nicholson)
Everybody loves a good mystery and sometimes the questions can be as intriguing as the answers.
In this fast-fact book Will investigates twenty unique mysteries, all of which pose questions in a broad spectrum of strangeness. Some, like the sudden disappearance of the sailing ship Mary Celeste's passengers and crew, have gained universal currency – but modern science reveals one possible twist to the story. Others are less well known…Was the Wow! Signal an alien radio transmission from deep space, or was it just the ambient resonating frequency of a passing comet? And can you solve the riddle that will lead you to a $2 million treasure?
Whether it be the history-changing enigma of long-lost civilisations like Göblekli Tepe, sensational serial killers, or the perennially elusive Shugborough Code that neither Dickens nor Darwin could crack, each unsolved mystery presents the reader with its own unique challenge. Play Sherlock to my Watson, and see what you think the answers are…

Cut with eye slits, the smock had a circular white symbol with lines through it emblazoned on the front. It looked like the crosshairs of a gunsight…’
‘…Some incredible stories, like the strange Gollum-like creatures who once lived in the Rising Star Cave in South Africa (yes, really). This book is well-written and fun.’
