The Three Investigators #9 Screaming Clock and #10 Moaning Cave
This is a story which has quite a few intriguing puzzles and riddles. It's the type of mystery that makes the reader think along with the boys.
I have read nine of these books, and as I read this book, I finally wondered about school. These boys don't go to school, yet they must. High school is mentioned offhand in one book, but otherwise, the boys are never in school. They must have a perpetual summer vacation! How nice!
I was pleased with myself for guessing the identity of the villain well before the end of the book. In fact, I had a suspicion from early in the story, because one comment that this person made sounded off to me, like this person was fishing for reasons to convince people that something was true.
I love the setting of this book. I loved the book from start to finish. It is outstanding!
