We set this out after we took the photo for the catalog, and were amazed over the next three days as everyone in the office pitched in during coffee breaks to complete it - as each of us was thus reminded just how relaxing and involving a good puzzle can be. And this is a really good one, made a little more difficult because there is no image to go by, only a mystery story to read and gather clues from. Great for family together time, and especially fun for movie and mystery fans of the great Alfred Hitchcock. 1000 pieces Finished size 29" x 23". Recommended as a lot of family fun.
