Hi, Super Sleuths!

As a reminder, this month’s prizes for the Super Sleuth of the Month (The Sleuth with the most correct answers in May) are a $10 Amazon gift card and a copy of Liz Johnson’s new romantic suspense Stolen Memories.


It is another fabulous Thursday and we have the Super Sleuth Challenge Answer. Hold onto your seat!

The location is West Seattle. The restaurant is Subway. The day is Sunday.

A family comes in to order a meal for dinner. While the wife is ordering for the family, the husband disappears into the restroom. He is gone for quite a while.

The wife knocks on the door to see if he is okay. She wanted to know what was taking him so long.

No answer.

Finally, the family leaves the restaurant. A short time later, the husband exits the bathroom with a large black trash bag. He leaves the restaurant.

One of the employees goes to the bathroom to find the key stolen, the sink wadded with towels and water running.

What do you think was stolen? 

A. Packages of frozen french fries from the freezer.

B. A refrigerator unit from the kitchen.

C. A toilet tank from the bathroom.

D. A table from the seating area.

Apparently, the toilet tank is worth $55o! Can you believe that?

It strikes me that this isn’t the most brilliant burglar either. Who brings their family to a burglary without asking them to drive the get-away car?

And where exactly do you pawn a toilet tank?

Thanks to those of you who joined our sleuthing this week. Stay tuned for next week’s Wednesday addition of the Super Sleuth Challenge!

If you were allowed to be any detective or super sleuth in history, real or fiction, who would it be?

    So was the tank thief nabbed?
    I like Sherlock Holmes, but since its author was into (and incorporated) some occult stuff, I’ll go with Agatha Christie’s Hercules Poirot. A close runner up would be G. K. Chesterton’s Father Brown.

      They didn’t say in the article if the thief was nabbed yet, but how funny! I think if I was a Super Sleuth I would want to be Kate on Castle, Catherine on Hawaii-Five O, or maybe Laura Holt on Remington Steele.

    I always liked Miss Marple.

    A toilet tank. Really?? Somehow it just seems so unsanitary or maybe like insanity, LOL.

  3. If I could be any super sleuth, it would be Sherlock Holmes.
