Okay this is one of my favorite books! Oh my word I was just reading it for fun because it is just really fun, then I looked in the cover and it is worth 3 points! So why not! Some of the questions are really, REALLY hard. So far I think I have gotten 7 or 8 right, but I am almost finished with the book! I suggest that you read this book if you like figuring mysteries out! :-)

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

These are extremely short but kind of fun. I take books like this in the car with me. You can almost read a story at a stoplight.

A book of short stories/mysteries. Would be fun to read with kids, but not so interesting to an adult.

I had the first book in this series when I was a child. I read #3 about a year ago, but tracking down #2 was extremely hard. (I had two instances of getting #3 instead of #2!) But I finally got it, so I was able to read the remaining Haledjian mysteries.

This book is severely dated (the others are as well) and relies on tired stereotypes (one of the answers to a mystery is "No woman would hang up a mink coat she'd just bought - she'd try it on immediately!".... yeah, okay), but some of the myster

It was pretty good, but some of the mysteries were so totally random that I was thinking that no one would ever get them. I was also thinking that the evidence wasn't enough to arrest someone, like a typo or a certain page number. The suspect was immediately arrested after that found one little bit of information
In this bizarro world, people make mistakes in their made-up alibi stories, but they do not make mistakes otherwise. Therefore, if somebody describes looking to the left when they meant looking to the right, and that messes up their story, they should be arrested.

Some of the solutions are a little dated in their "as everyone knows..." statements, but these mysteries are fun, quick, and easy to read.
