Missing Piece

by Antoine Bello

The 'sport' of jigsaw puzzling is introduced; with all the competitiveness, obsession, back-biting, and wheeling and dealing of 'sport' - plus , ultimately, all the danger of a whodunnit with a deadly twist. May appeal to all who have laughed at the intensity of a football or golf fanatic!

I got out 'Keeper of the Flame' from my briefcase, a puzzle by the New York maker, Squarecut Puzzle Company, which I often used in trials. Libby, my best recruit so far, had finished all 520 pieces in 21 minutes and 50 seconds. Could Spillsbury beat that?
