This is actually a book test, by Val Andrews on ideas by Richard Himber and Larry Becker (the second paragraph of any chapter has as the longest word the same - particular). The book is actually a novel on how Sherlock Holmes soved the Chung Ling Soo's death mystery, with an interesting theory. It is a nice read, more than a great book test.
The book contains two copies of the instructions for the book test routine.
The book is really hard to find.
