Hm, very intriguing. Was the idea of this originally based on those books... erm... they were all about solving mysteries. Each book had like 5 cases to solve, and one dealt with a guy getting hit in the head with a golfball, but it turns out he lied because there's no way he could have been hit in the forehead when he was looking at his mirror... or something.

I think the series was called "You Be the Judge." I could be wrong, though.

Anyways... was this game inspired by those?

The app is an interactive version of the Crime & Puzzlement books (book 1 to be exact) by Lawrence Treat. I think he did in fact also author (or co-author) a series under a title similar to "You be the judge", yes!

The app includes interactive versions of all 24 mysteries from Crime&Puzzlement 1. Here is a video trailer if you'd like to check it out: http://youtu.be/QXkAkYApFfk

I have Crime & Puzzlement. Each case has a short text writeup with a picture of the crime scene. The player then tries to work out what truly transpired by answering multiple choice questions.

Your book sounds interesting. I would download it if it is ever made into an app...
