What you need to know before your trail

Clayton Stumper is an enigma.

He might be twenty-five years old, but he dresses like your grandad and drinks sherry like your aunt.

Abandoned at birth on the steps of the Fellowship of Puzzlemakers, he was raised by the sharpest minds in the British Isles and finds himself amongst the last survivors of a fading institution.

When the esteemed crossword compiler, Pippa Allsbrook, passes away, she bestows her final puzzle to him: a promise to reveal the mystery of his parentage and prepare him for his future.

Yet as Clay begins to unpick the clues, he uncovers something even the Fellowship have never been able to solve – and it’s a secret that will change everything..

Travel Guide


Given the nature of the story, there are a lot of vague and fictional locations in this book. However, it’s a trail set in London around the Fellowship of Puzzlemakers and one man works at GCHQ in Cheltenham which is perhaps the best example of where puzzlemakers and puzzlesolvers actually work!

The locations here are where we go on the trail of clues to find out where the main character comes from and who he is.
