Karya terakhir Robert Arthur dalam seri Trio Detektif. Pada edisi ini, diceritakan mengenai sistem penyadap yang dapat menangkap dan mengirimkan suara. Sayangnya alat tersebut agak terlalu hebat untuk jamannya sehingga menjadi kurang meyakinkan.

An easy 5 stars when I first read it at age 12. Thirty plus years later it is probably closer to a 3 star, but that averages out to a 4 star which is what I'll give it. I can remember these books as the most exciting books in the library when I was a kid. I hope my son, when he's old enough to read enjoys them as much as I did.

2009 review - The last Robert Arthur book, this has a good strong opening and maintains a cracking pace throughout. Staying close to Rocky Beach, the regular cast of characters all have parts to play and there’s a nice, nostalgic atmosphere to the whole thing. Jupiter buys a magician’s trunk at auction and discovers it contains a skull that talks and a letter which seems to lead towards a stash of stolen money. Incorporating mediums, gypsies, hoodlums and houses that move, this is great fun and ...more

It is a good book it's about a kid and his friends going to a auction that was selling random trunks that was left at a hotel . That's where it happens a old trunk came up and no one bid on it but then one of the three kids Jupiter or nicked named jup said ill pay a dollar for it so he got it . After that this old lady came up and said she will pay 30$ for it but jup already bought it and said no to the lady. Once he had a better look he saw the engraved name The Great Gulliver.Gulliver friend S ...more

I really enjoy the Three Investigator series. This one was fun. In the end the boys always discuss the case with Mr. Hitchcook, and the reader discovers how the tricks of the mystery were done. It was clever the way the crook made the skull talk, but I won't tell you....

I was fond of mysteries when I was a kid...mostly because my dad has lots of hardy boys and other books like those.
This was definitely one of my favorites.
ahammad Galib
well, it was a kid's book. I knew. but I read this because I had an unknown fascination about this series, I heard lots about this. I think kids will find it really enjoyable.

[SPOILER ALERT]
Anyway while reading this the character PETE really irritated me. Always negative with every idea. And stamp deduction of the letter of Spike Neely and its misleading, identity of Zelda the gypsy, explanation of talking skull's talking trick are certainly capable of making kid's amazed.

When the Three Investigators bought the old trunk at an auction, they had no clue that it would turn into such a hotbed of interest. But almost immediately, offers start coming in – lucrative offers – for the trunk. What is so special about this particular trunk?

The boys soon learn that the trunk belonged to The Great Gulliver, an amateur magician who disappeared a year before. The trunk contains a few of his belongs as well as Socrates, a skull which some claim has the ability to speak.

I'm always keen to read new books from the past, especially a series of books that have passed me by. In this case I have Darren to thank from the Book Zone Blog for boys. I picked up this recommendation from one of his tweets a few weeks ago. This is a real hidden gem - I always find it interesting to look back and notice the difference. In this case, the time frame in which it was written is before the internet and the rapidly changing digital world.

Book one was published in 1964 and, 43 book

Another top-notch mystery for boys from Robert Arthur. He had a gift for creating situations that fascinate children; his books gave me endless hours of enjoyment as a boy, and now they're doing the same for my son (and for me again, too; the books are as fun to read aloud as they were to read in the first place!). The Three Investigators books are, in the most complimentary sense of the word, pure brain candy - compulsively readable and re-readable, with a perfect blend of puzzles, drama, excit ...more

Skull Skulduggery

Is Socrates Skull supernatural?

The Three Investigators must solve this mystery as well as others after buying a strange magician's trunk leads them on a dangerous quest for lost bank loot. a cryptic note found in the trunk leads the investigators to a fortune teller who gives them a veiled warning. A warning that turns out to be true as a gang trails them out of their detective junkyard headquarters owned by the uncle of head detective Jupiter Jones. The question that Jupiter

I've been re-reading the Three Investigators series as bedtime read-aloud books. Most of them are good, at least for kid's serialized pulp novels. What makes them fun is trying to solve the mystery along with the three familiar characters. In this book, though, the characters were not themselves. Pete is simply fearful of everything, and that's all there is to his personality in this book. Bob's strength is supposed to be research, but he doesn't bother to do any. And Jupiter, the inquisitive ne ...more

I read many of the Three Investigators book when I was a kid, so when my sister gave me this one because of the appropriate title and awesome cover art, I decided to give it a read. It turns out it's one I actually read back in the day, though I only remembered just the faintest outline of it. One thing I didn't remember was that the books were actually "introduced" by Alfred Hitchcock and even included him as a character! Surprisingly it was not as dated as I'd imagined it would be, though it's ...more

It was an enjoyable read. The book brought me back to my youth with all the adventures that my friends and I had.

I decided to read this book because it looked interesting. my favourite character in this book is jupe/ Jupiter because he never gave up and kept thinking of new ideas all the time and from this I learnt to never give and always keep thinking even if it is tough. my favourite quote from this book was "that awful thing! do you know what it just did? IT SAID 'BOO!' 'TO ME'." because it was really funny to read.
on the bingo board it is a book published before 1980.

Bisa-bisanya! sumpah gimana gitu pas bacanya:3
aku kira ini bakalan bersangkutan dengan kekuatan gaib dari mesir-mesir gitu, bisa-bisanya mumi itu tau siapa yang dia ajak bicara hell yah!
seperti buku lainnya, buku ini bacaan ringan yang yang gak ringan (?) karena walaupun kita bisa baca sambil nyante buku ini tetep ngeberi kita konflik yang bagus dan yang pasti unpredictable, dari awal sampe akhir

The only one in the series I've read so far. Along the lines of the Hardy Boys novels, but not so tightly constructed, and with some humorously out of place references to "Alfred Hitchcock, the famous motion picture director."
Jennifer Daniel
I was thrilled to find this blast from my past at the flea market. I read everyone of the 3 Investigators books as a kid. They were so much cooler and hip than the gay Hardy Boys and don't even get me started on the virginal Nancy Drew and her father complex.
Kolan
The best childhood series I read starting in the fourth grade. The best of the so called "syndicate Books" Reading them now brings back the memories and pleasure I had when reading them as a child.
Rob
I read all of the books in this series I could get my hands on as a kid and they are kind of fun generally with a little twist at the end. An enjoyable hour reminding me of the past.
Maria
I have read most of "The Three Investigator" books so it's nice when you finally come across one you haven't read before. I liked it and was surprised how the ending turned out.
jessie monika
Even though this book is not as good as the first three, I still recommend you to read it if you like an alternative genre of detective book.
Andreas Aris
I read this novel when I was 13. I got amazed with Jupiter Jones, the smartest detective of the three. This book is very entertaining.
Mayank Saboo
Revitalized my interest in mystery fiction after a disappointing Hardy Boys book. Need to give the entire series a try soon.
Emma
Read while on holiday, I found it on the shelves of our holiday cottage and loved it!

I have been enjoying this series as much as I did when I read these as a kid.
