S.earch Book 2

*** UPDATE *** After a lot of headscratching and pondering book 2 was found by Joseph Tavano

I have updated the clue information below to show how I think it's location was worked out.
We are off again, this time the search area is Boston.

@MyTheseus has suggested that this might point to the City of Squares in Boston otherwise known as Cambridge
Second clue
Third clue.

Picture of Blaise de Vigenère which leads us to the Vigenère cipher to decode the letters in the second clue, using Monkey as the keyword gives us - "Home of the engineers"
Clue four

Possibly relating to Wavy Gravy the Hippie Clown

If you rake WAVY GRAVY and reverse it it to GRAVY WAVY, spend the two 5's i.e. remove the roman numeral number 5 (V's) from the name you get GRAY WAY which is a street on the MIT campus.

The L. in this clue refers to building 50 (Roman numeral again).

So looking at the map above the building is the Walker Memorial building.
Possibly relating to the Castor Genus of Beaver, as the Engineers team mascot is Tim the Beaver

Confirmed, just inside the building is a mosaic of Tim the Beaver.
A poem by Ogden Nash

The full poem is -

A flea and a fly in a flue
Were imprisoned, so what could they do?
Said the fly, "let us flee!"
"Let us fly!" said the flea.
So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

The book was hidden in an old Flue just inside the building.

  2. Also, the MIT mascot is The Engineers. Maybe it's at the Du Pont Athletic Gymnasium? https://whereis.mit.edu/?go=W31

  5. Testimony of Restoration with the help of Martinez Lexie(Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com OR +18168926958)..

    I have been in financial mess for the past months, I'm a single mum with kids to look after. My name is Renee Joan Rothell, and am from Ridley Park, Pennsylvania. A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about Mr Martinez Lexie of ( Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com ); that he can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. She advised, I gave it a try because she and some of her colleagues were rescued too by this Godsent lender with loans to revive their dying businesses and paying off bills. so I mailed him and explain all about my financial situation and therefore took me through the loan process which was very brief and easy.. After that my loan application worth 78,000.00 USD was granted, all i did was to follow the processing and be cooperative and today I am a proud business owner sharing the testimony of God-sent Lender. You can as well reach him through the Company website: http://lexieloans.bravesites.com OR text: +18168926958
