One of the better Three Investigators. I like the ones (like this one) that go back to a lot of the original routes, where the boys call each other "First," "Second," and "Records" and spend time in their headquarters, etc. And in general I prefer the ones (like this one) that don't have any supernatural suspicions in them. I enjoyed that the boys did a lot of research, searching through old newspapers, journals, historical accounts, and maps to get the information they needed. Some of the info ...more

It also hinges on the fact that the mystery is solved, essentially, by the weather, with mudslides showing the way. The ...more

I loved all the Alfred Hictchcock and the Three Investigator stories. I loved the fort hidden through the junk. The adventure and the twists the stories took. I read every one of the series I could get my hands on when I was a pre-teen. I also think these stories would still appeal to the younger reader today.

I saved my money for 2 weeks just to buy this book. I decided to buy this book, after I read and found it very entertaining. Like it very much!

I like this one also. If I am not mistaken it involves a legendary figure in a latin american country (spanish related). Well, it was exciting.
