This was one of the better Three Investigators novels. This one involves a reclusive movie star, a witches' coven, and a trio of dastardly villains. This one was a little more "real world" than some of the Scooby Doo type monster stories (which I do enjoy.) Adding the witchcraft angle into old Hollywood really made this an enjoyable read. I could picture this as an old film starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. If you're a 3 Investigators fan I don't think you'll disappointed with this one.

2010 review - The boys are working part-time at Amigos Press, run by the smart but clumsy Beefy Tremayne. He’s just taken receipt of the potentially explosive memoirs of Madeline Bainbridge, an actress from Hollywood’s Golden era, who might or might not have been a witch. When the Amigos offices are burned down, the memoirs stolen and Bainbridge’s films snatched from a TV studio next door, it’s up to the boys to get to the bottom of things. Starting with a bang, this has a terrific pace and is a ...more

Reading one of the Three Investigators books is always a happy, nostalgia trip. I think, as a child of the '80s, I was likely on the tail end of this particular nostalgia trip, but I always used to look for these books when I went to the library and I'm having a lot of fun re-reading them. They remind me in a way of Scooby Doo episodes, somewhat. A perplexing mystery with lots of twists and turns, lots of sneaky, devious characters, and the truth is all laid out in detail at the end.

2.5 Jupiter Jones is in good form, but the mystery itself was easy to see through. I had expectations of Hitch giving the boys clues based on some film he made with Miss Bainbridge, but that didn't happen. Miss Bainbridge, a big star whose career began in the silent era, was less Norma Desmond that I either hoped or feared. (view spoiler)

WKKPL | Surprisingly accurate depiction of witchcraft for a book of its time, worth reading for those who enjoy the series but it's part of the middle set that aren't as strong as either the early books or the later ones. Should really be The Jupiter Jones Show, not The Three Investigators, because there wasn't much use made of Bob or Pete.

I have always maintained that if you are on the lookout for a book that at the same time satiates your thirst for a thriller and quest for more knowledge, then the Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators in The Mystery of the Magic Circleis just the kind of book that you want. When I first set my eyes on the title I felt like as if the magic circle would be some kind of witchcraft, but as usual I was mistaken. The magic Circle, though it deals with witchcraft is not the kind of witchcraft t ...more

This is the first Three Investigators book I've read. I never read these as a kid, but recently learned about them and wanted to check one out. This was enjoyable enough as a quick read, but probably wouldn't be anything someone would want to read who hadn't gotten into this series as a kid. I was hoping for more interaction both between the three investigators (Jupiter, who seems to be a mini Hitchcock, dominated the story) and between the three and the main source of the mystery, Madeline Bain ...more

I loved this story. MV Carey wrote some pretty weak 3I stories, but when she put her mind to it she could produce some gems. Magic Circle is a great story full of sabbats and witches. I give it a 5, even though she finds it increasingly hard to find useful things for Pete and Bob to do in her books. Her later writings could arguably be renamed the Jupiter Jones books.

It isn't the strongest installment in the series, but at least it made me nostalgic for a time when former movie stars actually faded out of public life after thirty years. That was the single most anachronistic thing in the whole book.

I read a lot of the three investigators in my early teens, when I was between 11 and 14. I think I read the whole shelf of the library, where those books were kept :) but I remember only a few ...

A good addition to the series. A few parts of the mystery are a little less plausible than usual, but otherwise the book lives up to the normal standards.
