Rotten 27s

From Jasper Fforde's Something Rotten

Beginning of chapter 5:

The twenty-seven point procedure is the most costly and complicated piece of bureaucracy the city has ever devised...

End of chapter 43:

"You sent all twenty-eight of them forward just to hide St. Zvlkx?"

"Twenty-seven actually--one of them was real."
