Eine der eher schwächeren Folgen.

Die drei ??? fahren gemeinsam mit Allie Jamison und ihrem Onkel auf dessen Weihnachtsbaumplantage in einem kleinen Dörfchen in New Mexico. Dort gibt es eine Silbermine, in der plötzlich Gold gefunden wird, einen zwielichtigen Minenbesitzer, der peinlich darauf bedacht ist, jeden von seiner Mine fern zu halten, eine nette ältere Dame, die sich an ein sehr wichtiges Detail erinnert und zwei zwielichtige Gestalten, die mit Macheten ihr Unwesen treiben und eine Leich

original 2010 review - Teaming up again with Allie (from “Singing Serpent”), the boys travel to her Uncle’s Christmas Tree farm in New Mexico, which is close to an abandoned mine (the Death Trap of the title). Local-boy-made-good Thurgood has re-opened the mine, then Allie and the boys find a dead body in there and clues start to pop up that indicate the corpse might have been involved in an armoured car robbery. This is really good fun, with a smart mystery at the centre of it, a good pace and ...more

The Three Investigators are re-visited by Allie Jamison, a former client, (which usually never happens in these books) as she has suspicions about a man named Wesley Thurgood, who has recently bought out an abandoned mine. Soon after, Allie and the boys discover a body in the mine, and they fine themselves drawn into the mystery of the body, an old robbery, and an ongoing scam...
I really enjoyed this addition to the Three Investigators. Allie returns, which usually never happens in these books,

After Singing Serpent, MV Carey produced a couple of sub-par 3I stories. But in Death Trap Mine she found her form again. The much loved Allie Jamison is back, this time convinced that her usually business savvy uncle and the rest of the sleepy town of Twin Lakes are being taken in by a millionaire who has come home to roost. Allie is convinced he is up to no good, although everyone else thinks he is on the level. There are also a strong characters in Allie's friend Mrs. Macomber and the crooks ...more

Gefahr im Verzug und die Polizei zu rufen dauert zu lange. Was machen die drei Jungens also? Zünden einen Schuppen an, damit die Feuerwehr kommt und den Sheriff mitbringt. Nur dumm, dass in dem Schuppen Dynamit gelagert wird. Normalerweise verhalten sich die drei verantwortungsvoller.

I love listening to the audiobooks of these books, the german voices are really great! Although the plot isn't always perfect, it was still really enjoyable and entertaining to listen to.

I read these when I was a kid and I remember loving them. I think I'll read them to my kids and in doing so, get a little trip down memory-lane at the same time...

This one actually has a dead body in it! But it isn't any more scary than the other books in the series. Some nice twists in the mystery, and good adventure. We see Allie again (from The Mystery of the Singing Serpent) and she isn't quite as annoying.
