The Three Investigators #19 Phantom Lake and #20 Monster Mountain
I notice that the boys are on winter vacation in this book. They have been on a perpetual summer vacation for most of the series. The cold winter weather ends up playing a role in the plot, which is nice for a change.
I really enjoyed this book.
I really enjoyed this book. I made an educated guess as to the solution of part of the mystery, and it was fun looking for additional clues to support my conclusion as I continued reading. The clues were sprinkled throughout the book, so I was able to solve the mystery right along with the Three Investigators. Outstanding!
The solution to the mystery of the monster is left open-ended, and this adds to the intrigue. Some readers will find that part annoying, but I didn't mind. I have my own solution as to what I think the monster is, so I am fine with the book not explaining it.
This book is outstanding.
