I grew up devouring the Hardy Boys and Tom Swift books, reading every one that they had in every library that I could get to. Through the girls in school and other contacts regarding adventure books for young people, I was also aware of the Nancy Drew series for girls. However, I had little to no understanding of the Judy Bolton series of mystery books.
According to the blurb on the back of this book, Judy is “. . . the attractive young wife of an FBI agent...” Like the good wife, she cooks fo

Coming back to Judy Bolton books is a relaxing breath of fresh air. I discovered her when I was in grade school and re-read them periodically. Even named one of our black cats Blackberry after hers. While I liked the volumes before Judy and Peter married better (no more mystery about IF they would marry!), the later stories always held enough backstory and new clues to keep my interest. Even after a LOT of years...they still do. I was pleasantly surprised to find so many readers here who actuall ...more

I like that the mysteries are sometimes in Farringdon, sometimes in Roulsville, sometimes in New York City or elsewhere. But these small town/cities in mystery series do sure have a lot of crime--and Roulsville is not even rebuilt yet! The usual breaks in logic, heedless plunges into danger, but nice to see Judy take the lead while Peter is laid up and Roberta acting as assistant.

Probably 3.5 stars. An early morning phone call lures Peter to the office of the new Roulsville development, where a number of accidents have occurred recently. Both Judy and Roberta beg to go with him, and since no one is there when they arrive, the go have breakfast. Returning, Peter disappears and Judy sees The Warning on the Window. Peter is found, unconscious, and his life is in grave danger. Despite this Judy is determined to investigate, especially after Roberta finds a clue.
