My book is the original book with dust jacket from my childhood. It has been read many times. I just re-read it for a review in an article in a fanzine magazine. For those not familiar with the vintage Judy Bolton series, that has 38 titles, this is book #17 and is the dividing line between Judy's single growing up years and her later ones as a wife; she marries Peter Dobbs in this book and in this book he also becomes an FBI agent. It isn't the best book in the series but deserves a solid 4 ...more

Interesting how one book in this series sometimes starts the day after the previous one ends.

For people on a honeymoon living in the 1940s, Judy and Peter ...more
