this book gets points for moving at a pretty good clip & featuring lots of cary retlin, but the plot is a little bit on the lame side. basically. cary & kristy get into an argument over who is the better detective or something, & cary challenges kristy to a mystery war. he writes up eight clues which he hides around the school. each clue leads to the next clue. the babysitters have six days to solve all the clues & the final mystery. if they succeed, cary will stop pranking them ...more

Overall I thought the mystery was interesting. And I do enjoy Cary as a "villain" He's certainly a better villain than most other SMS middleschoolers.

However, as a person who is colorblind red/green as well, I thought the portrayal, was ridiculous. But I know this is par for the course when introducing a character that is different. I have the same rant about Dawn, as she and I are both Californians.

This was a real page turner! Good mystery, lots of suspense to keep you interested and a fast paced narrative. I'm time fan of the Baby-Sitters Club, but a lot of times the mysteries are disappointing--weak plot, no real mystery, more baby-sitting than anything else to the point where it should be a standard book! This one however surprised me with an honest to goodness whodunit for the BSC to solve, and if you like the side character Cary Retlin, I recommend this one.

A lot more believable than most of the Mysteries, and I liked the clues, so definitely one of the better ones.
