Readers of that age and older (maybe younger depending on reading ability) will certainly still find it enjoyable and exciting. Of course, middle aged men like myself (50+) still find this series enjoyable to read simply because it is one of the book series I used to read when I was 10 to 12 years old! Hope you enjoy it!

However, there are a number of editions of this book out there so the book is relatively easy to find online. There is even a Kindle version apparently released in 2015. Personally, I searched the online auction sites before purchasing my hardcover edition, and a number of copies of the book can be found by searching those sites. The Three Investigators series has also become very popular in Germany and there are a number of German versions of the book on the market as well. Good luck!(less)

I loved The Three Investigators Series as a kid, and loved re-reading almost all of the 30-plus books as an adult. "The Secret Of Terror Castle" is a worthy introduction — full of spooky pre-Manson Family atmosphere in the Hollywood Hills, loaded with genuine mystery and populated by humorous but likable characters. Plus, you know ... Alfred Hitchcock himself.

The story: Jupiter Jones and friends Pete Crenshaw and Bob Andrews (their ages are never given, but they seem to be about 14 or 15 years

The Secret of Terror Castle is just about a perfect book for boys aged 8-15. Robert Arthur is a woefully neglected author of great skill, and some of his finest writing is on display in the Three Investigators series.

This is the first book in the series, and as such it establishes many elements which were continued throughout. We're introduced to Jupiter Jones, Pete Crenshaw, and Bob Andrews, as well as a host of memorable supporting characters. And, of course, we are introduced to the host of t

I have to admit the five star rating is due mainly to the nostalgia of the book, but I just couldn't help myself. In this, the first book of the three investigators series, we are introduced to Jupiter, Pete, and Bob. These are three teenage detectives who form their own agency to investigate various crimes, and through a strange twist Alfred Hitchcock ends up as their mentor. Hitchcock appears in the stories as himself, so there's a bit of a real world feel to them. They have a cool secret hide ...more

Eaaa, Trio Detektif terbitan baru ini tidak lagi di-endorse oleh sutradara Alfred Hitchcock, melainkan Albert Hitfield. Siapa tuuuh? Anggap saja pseudonym-nya ya.

Copyrightnya juga entah kenapa dari edisi Jerman. Tapi sepertinya terjemahannya tetap pakai versi lama karena nama Agus Setiadi, dan Jupiter Jones-nya tidak berubah menjadi Justus Jonas seperti versi Jermannya.

Justus? Mendingan juga Jupe (tidak ada hubungannya dengan penyanyi dangdut tertentu).

Eines meiner Leseziele dieses Jahr ist es, alle drei Fragezeichen Bände von vorne bis hinten durchzulesen. Bisher habe ich mich nämlich um die frühen amerikanischen Bände, also die Klassiker, ein wenig gedrückt.

Der erste Band jedoch hat mir viel Spaß gemacht, obwohl ich die Story als Hörspiel inn und auswendig kannte, und ich freue mich auf die nächsten Bände.

I just reread this mystery I loved as a kid. The first Three Investigators mystery holds up well after all these years. In addition to being the great fantasy for kids (e.g. a secret hideout in a junkyard that was much cooler than my own middle school detective agency in a corner of my house), the spooky tone is the perfect level of spine-tingling without being too frightening, and the mystery is a clever one.

Basically, what got me started on reading. This and Archie comics induced the love/hate relationship I have with wordlings now, a relationship that is strictly not platonic, I assure you.
Throw Hitchcock into the mix, so very cool. Very original way to present a series.

2008 review - A sterling, well-written story that sets the series off to a flying start. The characters are well-drawn, the locations ably described and the genuine sense of fear and spookiness, around Terror Castle, is well evoked. The story does feel a bit slight, but that’s only to be expected as the book needs space to set everything up. Well worth a read and the only thing that dates this (it’s 44 years old!) is the fact that a silent film-star plays a major part in it. A cracking book.

A wonderful mystery.

The Three Investigators are Bob Andrews, Pete Crenshaw, and Jupiter Jones. They are from Rocky Beach, a few miles from Hollywood.
Bob is their researcher, Pete is tall and strong, so I guess that makes him muscle in the group and Jupiter Jones is the brains. They have their "office" at The Jones Salvage Yard which is run by Jupiter's uncle. It is in an old trailer the uncle forgot.
Jupiter won the use of a Rolls-Royce with chauffeur, for thirty days. They used it for their fir

Not something I would ever, ever pick up of my own inclination, this is a teen age boy detective story (the first of a series) of the 60's that my husband said rocked his little teenage heart back in the day. I have my own son who is a "mini me" version of his dad, so I always get any books Dad remembers reading in his youth. I was getting bored (again) with Adam Bede and treated myself with this bit of Halloween-appropriate fluff. Funny thing, it's not fluff. Teen novel, yes, but not fluff. The ...more

These books made my childhood. I really think that they shaped me into what I am today, so I'm very thankful to my local library for carrying these when I, in the tender age of 10, decided to start borrowing books (using my dad's card, no less; of course, he knew I was using it) I have a few favourites in the series, they will get a 5

Loved this series as a youth but remembered it being a little scary at times. So I read this before recommending it and giving it to my 9 yr old son for Christmas. It was well written and fast moving action/adventure book - and not too scary for a (or at least my) 9 yr old. Surprised it is not available on kindle since it is relevant today.

I found the book to be excellent for boys from 5th-8th grade (give or take). The protagonists are that age and the book (and series) does an excellent job of

Originally published in 1964, “The Secret of Terror Castle” by Robert Arthur is the first installment in The Three Investigators books, a young adult mystery series reminiscent of The Hardy Boys. The trio is comprised of Bob Andrews, a bookish youth who works part-time at the local library and is in charge of records and research for the Three Investigators; Pete Crenshaw, an athletic type who serves as Second Investigator; and Jupiter Jones, the erudite First Investigator.

The first book in The Three Investigators mystery series.

Originally written in 1964 (the year I was born), which I first read when I was 12 in 1976, and re-read many times since. I just love this series. It was so well crafted by Robert Arthur, that the series continued long after his death, with authors taking up his mantle - to a total of 43 books in the main series, with a further 11 books in the Crimebusters series until 1990.

The series has such a large international fandom, that the German

The Three Investigators is one of my favorite children adventure series beside Enid Blyton's The Famous Five.
It's just so hard not to get engage with the characters. The smartass yet your-choice-of-word-is-too-complicated-for-my-comprehension Jupiter 'Jupe' Jones. The athletic but -somehow- coward and pesimistic Peter 'Pete' Crenshaw. The bookworm yet meticulous Robert 'Bob' Andrew.

I decided to read this book because Celia recommend it to me cause I could find a book that would fit a category I had not yet finished.

This book fits into the category: a book with a male main character. I found this category interesting because it was really different from some of the chick flick books I have read.

My favorite quote from this book would be: " I thought you said your legs took orders from you, he called. They do, cried Jupe. I ordered them to run." r

How would you like to have to look for a haunted house worthy enough for a movie? I read THE SECRET OF TERROR CASTLE, by Robert Arthur Jr. It is the first book in the three investigators series. The three investigators are Peter Crenshaw, Jupiter Jones, and Bob Andrews.

Peter Crenshaw, Jupiter Jones, and Bob Andrews are all young detectives. The boys decide this would help promote their business so they go talk to Alfred Hitchcock, the famous movie detector

When I was in 7th grade I discovered this series about three kids who hooked up with Alfred Hitchcock, solved mysteries, had a HQ/fort that any 7th grader would kill for.
Loved the series and have read them on and off for 30 years. I'll usually find a copy of one of the books at a flea market or co-op and I'll pick it up and enjoy the time travel back to my 7th grade self.

Jupiter Jones and his friends Pete and Bob (I have read these books way too often) have formed a detective agency, with business cards and everything! Jupiter finagles his way in to see Alfred Hitchcock, and talks him into giving him a case to investigate.
The case, the first of the Three Investigators series, involves a haunted castle that was the home of a famous silent movie star modeled after Lon Chaney, I think. The actor was a master of disguise, but he has disappeared and people have repor
