2008 review - Another of my all-time favourites, this is a rollercoaster of an adventure, that never really lets us. It’s been a while since I read it, so a lot of the story was fresh and I was surprised at how wide it casts it’s net - from the initial robbery, the detail of the gnomes and the pursuit in the cinema, right down to the ‘second’ ending and the deduction surprises that last to almost the final page. A clever, atmospheric mystery that’s well worth a read, I loved it.

2013 update - It’

Another good mystery! (Honestly, my nostalgia for these books will probably never let me give one a bad rating, but we'll see.)

In this one we have an impossible museum robbery and a lady being plagued by gnomes. (Gnomes?!?!)

As with all of the three investigators novels, another fun mystery read! Young readers are especially missing out if they haven't tried this series.

Amazing!

I thought I'd start the new year off by reading a selection from one of my favorite juvenile series. In this story, Jupiter Jones and gang solve not 1, but 2 mysteries. The Investigators happen to witness the robbery of a precious belt from a local museum. They offer their detective services, but are turned down because of their youth. Around the same time, Alfred Hitchcock recommends them to an elderly friend who believes her house and surrounding grounds have been taken over by gnomes. As usua ...more

AH&T3I Update: 5 read, 23 hardbacks to go!

Robert Arthur, the creator of the Three Investigators and the writer of the first 11 titles was a genius! Ok, maybe he borrowed a little (and just a little) from the Sherlock Holmes' Red-Headed League short story, but he did not borrow enough to give away this plot or even the main story of this book. For evidence of Mr. Arthur's genius, consider this quote from page 150 in the book:

"'Well done, lads,' Mr. Hitchcock rumbled at last. 'Well done indeed

I was a big fan of the Three Investigators as a kid, and now my own kids have enjoyed reading them as well. I tried reading a couple of Hardy Boy mysteries when I was young, but found them uninteresting in comparison. Jupiter Jones, Pete Crenshaw, and Bob Andrews always had much more interesting cases to solve and they seemed more like real kids than the Hardy Boys.

While visiting a local museum the lights go out and a jewel-encrusted belt is discovered missing. Jupiter forwardly offers the assi

This is the fifth in what was called__when I was reading and collecting them__THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK MYSTERY SERIES. The real mystery here is why this isn__t entitled The Mystery of the Wicked Gnomes. After all, this isn__t the first__nor last__time the boys will encounter a treasure, and, as for vanishing . . .

Whereas the previous book in the series (The Mystery of the Green Ghost) might have used, in retrospect, some unfortunate stereotypes in its Chinese characters, this one employs a little mo

oke.. gue udah nebak ini adalah kejahatan orang kerdil karena ngga mungkin kurcaci ada
tapi gue ngga nyangka buku ini bisa tetep bikin deg-degan dan berpikir keras
kayaknya kepintaran gue masih setara sama pete dan bob, bukan jupiter
somehow pesan yang gue dapet adalah kadang masalahnya lebih rumit dari yang terlihat atau justru lebih simple dari kelihatannya..
dan it is okay mengambil kesimpulan yang salah, mungkin karena buktinya kurang atau deduksi kita yang salah
yang jelas ketika tahu kita salah

This kind of felt like a more grown-up McGurk mystery to me. Plenty of fun to read.

This one is my favorites so far. Trio Detectives solve not only one problem but two! How wide this cases for three teenagers is really surprise me. I fell in love with this story. The plot twist also ugghh I'm speechless. Jupiter's deduction skill really amazed me and if he was a real person, I'm happily will ask him how to make a good conclusion and take a peek what's on his reading list.

This series is a wonderful one for kids. The Hitchcock character only does what amounts to cameos, and sometimes, if I remember correctly, doesn't even show up at all. The ones about the Mexican bandit and the Spider stand out in my mind and I remember them quite well. Overall, they were all fun to read.

Dari trio detektif series yang pernah kubaca, untuk saat ini, petualangan inilah yang menjadi favoritku, terdapat 2 masalah yang pada awalnya sama sekali tidak terlihat berhubungan, ternyata sangat berhubungan. Pengalaman yang mendebarkan dan buku ini sangat keren

Jadi ini sebenernya akan terasa lebih menarik seandainya saja tidak terjebak Spoiler di salah satu review yang ada di Goodreads ini. spoilernya berada di kalimat pertama, woooi....

Hmm, uvažujem či sa mi táto kniha najmenej páčila preto, že som ju asi predtým čítala len raz alebo preto, že je tam "veľa" násilia.... a fakt sa neviem rozhodnúť.

I was not thrilled by this routine mystery involving a vanishing act and a magician. But, it was still good but i have read better entries in the series.

The best childhood series I read starting in the fourth grade. The best of the so called "syndicate Books" Reading them now brings back the memories and pleasure I had when reading them as a child.
