This one was surprising. It started out really slow, and very formulaic. However, about halfway through it picked up and turned into one of the better Three Investigator novels.

A "screaming clock" is brought into the junkyard. Rather than an alarm sounding, this clock screams. This puzzles the boys, and it goes on from there. We do have another teenage boy introduced, but this time hes from Cali just like the other boys, so no exotic cultures this time. Also, the villains are amped up a bit, jus

Membaca lagi buku ini setelah lewat bertahun-tahun :D

Kisahnya diawali dengan ditemukannya jam weker yang bunyinya menjerit oleh Jupe. Lalu ada pesan yang menyertai jam itu. Pesan dari Albert Clock sang pemilik jam menjerit untuk Rex, agar bertanya pada Imogene, Gerald dan Martha. Ketiganya ternyata mendapatkan pesan yang berbeda dari Albert Clock.

Pesan kepada Imogene:
It's quiet there even in a hurricane
Just a word of advice, politely given
Old english bowmen loved it
Bigger than a raindrop, smalle

Jupiter comes across a clock that screams-which leads the three investigators to a set of mysterious messages and another exciting mystery. This was a very enjoyable read. I didn't quite figure out what the puzzles (except one set) might turn out to be and even the puzzle leading to the denouement was very well done. This has to be my favourite in this series so far.

+ceritanya berawal dr hal kecil-hal biasa saja, berkembang mengikuti imajinasi Jupe dan mengawali petualangan Trio Detektif. seringnya anak-anak (berdasarkan ingatan saya spt sebagaimana anak2 seharusnya) selalu memulai imajinasinya dari ordinary thing.. mereka mengasah kemampuan berimajinasi dengan mengikuti permainan pikiran dan menciptakan petualangan..

I'm not typically a reader of mysteries, and especially not a reader of Alfred Hitchcock or anything remotely resembling horror / fear. But this series was introduced to me by my older brother. He had a couple of old copies from this series (published in 1969) laying around, and passed them down to my sons. I read this one to sort of get the "feel" for the series, and found it clever. Although the title denotes inclusion of Alfred Hitchcock, the author is actually Robert Arthur. Alfred Hitchcock ...more

A great book. Amazing plot. The narration unleashes the plot in a way that keeps you involved all through till the end. The last but not the least their re-encounter with the greatest opponent, the three investigators ever dealt with.
As in all other cases Jupiter digs into practically harmless things to come up with a case that ends up being so interesting that one is forced to read the book in one go. Though the clock initially seems harmless and normal to the other two investigators but over t

Saya masih ingaaat...sudah lebih dari 1 dekade dan saya masih ingat.

Terakhir saya membabat habis koleksi Trio Detektif di perpustakaan sekolah waktu SMP kelas 1. Saya masih ingat bagaimana misteri ini terkuak. Waktu itu saya menganggap cerita misteri jeritan jam ini keren sekali.

Jadi ceritanya adalah Jupiter dan kawan-kawan menemukan jam beker bekas. Saat dibunyikan, jam nya menjerit nyaring menyeramkan. Jupiter penasaran, kenapa ada orang yang mau-maunya membuat jam yang bisa menjerit seperti i

2009 review - I had it in my head that this and “Talking Skull” are the weakest Arthur books but, upon re-reading this as an adult, I don’t think that’s the case. Certainly, it’s not as sensational as the other stories and sticks resolutely close to home (coming off of the Varania trip), but it’s a solid mystery, showing the boys detecting skills perfectly, though the story itself relies quite heavily on chance. Characterisation is good - it’s nice to see Hugenay again after “Stuttering Parrot” ...more

Why I Reread This Book: I'm on an ongoing Three Investigators kick.

Goodreads says I rated this three stars on 2007-09-11. Rereading it now, I think it deserves much better; I'd probably rate it 9/10. It starts with Jupiter Jones finding a surprising item among the incoming salvage at his family business and builds quickly from there, without too many false leads. Granted, it takes a while to get all the pieces in place, and the three investigators themselves don't interact as much as they might,

I absolutely LOVED this series as a kid! Still fun to read as an adult. But of course I have never really grown up. My favorite of the 3 Investigators was always Jupiter Jones. I think I identified with him because he was a fat kid. It really shows the time (late 60's) when this book was written. Kids largely unsupervised, being made to do manual labor by adults, getting into cars and homes with strangers. I'm surprised some one hasn't tried to get them banned.

I read these as a kid and really liked them. Surprisingly, they stood the test of time and are still good books. Excellent for kids. They are similar to Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys but I liked this series better.

I think that it was cool how a screaming clock could lead to a mystery. I also was excited to read how a bad guy helped a innocent man and helped this time to solve the mystery. (He had some good in him.)

I loved these Three Investigators books when I was a kid (growing up in England, they had the almost-contemporary American allure that was missing from similar Enid Blyton adventures), so when I found this on a friend's bookshelves while staying over one weekend, I could not resist rereading it late at night (though not, unfortunately, under the covers with a torch).

This is a grand adventure: just enough action and fright to be believable, and with a solid case of clues and deduction to work on.

This is a classic that really stands up to the test of time. The second story with Huganay, who tries to double-cross the boys at the end but is a good sport when his plans fall through. Both the stories involving Huganay have the boys chasing after paintings through cryptic messages from dead men. I reread this story last week and still love it. I think it was the last of the Robert Arthur stories that I got my hands on. The first one I read by the original author was Vanishing Treasure.

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.

Going on a bit of a nostalgia kick. Man, I remember loving this book, and many of the others, when I was a kid. It's so much simpler than I remembered it being! Although I did remember the solution to the riddles...

An interesting mystery. My children enjoyed reading it.

It starts out as one story and winds it way around and around to come back to the original story. Any details and I would give the plot away.

chyba najciekawsza, po zagadce jąkającej się papugi, odsłona przygód. Mamy tu szyfry, dziwne zagadki prowadzące jedna do drugiej, tajemnice, gangi, przestępców, ciekawe łamigłówki... świetne.
