The WBs: I was considering re-deployment or transferring ownership on the detectives, as circumstances are unfortunately preventing the maintenance I should be providing. Archiving is the best option, based on the tone of the DNF logs and dwindling interest in caches in the "unknown" category that are not challenge caches. Thanks for playing!

Geocache Description:

NOT AT THE POSTED COORDINATES. PLEASE PARK RESPONSIBLY. Location is BIBB (Best if By Bike) (or hiking in) from the parking coordinates. Distance from recommended parking to solved final is approximately 2.5 miles (and that distance is indicated by the terrain rating and attributes). When parking closer or with chauffeur service, terrain would be 1.5 and the hike distance attribute removed.

That question mark on the map? Not the real coordinates, but just the virtual markers for 2 new Great Detectives and 5 sequels. You'll need to solve the puzzles to discover where the containers are. You can park once, then bike or hike in and get all 7.

Images of Richard Jury from book covers or films are rare (there was an actor named "Richard Jury," and there was a TV adaptation in Austria and Germany of the first book). The books are very entertaining, though, and one clever thread running through the series is that each title is named after an actual pub (current or former). Since we can't do a pub crawl, we can at least do a web crawl, so use your search engine to answer a few questions.
The bar called "Vertigo42" has a London address of ?? Old Broad Street.
The pub called "I am the Only Running Footman" (usually shortened to "The Only Running Footman") is also in London, at ? Charles Street.
"The Horse You Came In On" is a bar in Baltimore, Maryland. It's famous for being the last place Edgar Allan Poe was seen alive, and for being America's longest continually operating saloon. Richard Jury and friends travel to America in the book named after the saloon. The saloon was established in ????

Add the three integers you obtained together; this will give a four-digit answer we'll call "x". 4109331 minus x equals the north coordinates. 9610115 minus x equals the west coordinates.
