Solve puzzles, crack codes, and follow the clues to reveal the plot of a conspiracy thriller in an exciting cross between an escape room and a novel, where you are the hero.
Join the Extraordinary Investigations Unit and take on your first case, the mysterious disappearance of researcher Louis Morgan, last seen on the trail of a secret cache of Nazi gold.
From the dying days of World War II to the modern day, this interactive puzzle novel sees you uncover a twisted tale of espionage, deceit, and murder - a missing investigator, a lost treasure, a sinister conspiracy.
Each chapter of the story is revealed through an Evidence File containing notes, photos, fragments of documents, maps, and newspaper articles. Hidden within the book's pages you'll find cleverly-designed puzzles and clues through which the story is told - offering hours of intriguing investigation.
The book is filled with a variety of challenges - ciphers and codes, visual puzzles, translation, number and symbol puzzles, as well as questions requiring online detective work. Regardless of the type of puzzle needing solved, the book includes a 3-tier hint system to ensure you'll never get totally stuck.
Whilst the book contains no explicit or violent imagery, the unfolding story explores adult themes of conspiracy, corruption, and murder, and may be unsuitable for children under 13.

Extraordinary Investigations: The Morgan File is super realistic! For sure, it’s called a ‘Puzzle Novel’, but I’m not sure where the history ends and the fictional ‘novel’ begins? Which feels so refreshing! I love learning new things whilst I play and The Morgan File strikes that balance that very well.
