Why does the grandfather clock always stop on Thursdays? To these and many other questions, previously considered to be outside the realm of science, trained researchers are now turning their eager attention — and close behind them, tracking and stalking, comes that arch-exposer and expositor of backroom secrets, Magnus Pyke.”
