    This book is one of my most favourites in the Three Investigators series I love mystery stories in which not everything is rationally explained meaning there's only a paranormal explanation after all or The monster lived after all at the end and this one does have that element So it gets a 5 star rating because I personally love it not because it's a literary masterpiece or extremely complicated or highly recommended by me or anything But 5 stars it is it has a special place in my heart More books in the series will get this rating for this same reason

    Another good three investigators mystery but they honestly are all ready getting a bit predictable Although I suppose in a young adult mystery series you will end up with several Scooby Doo type storiesWe have a haunted house a spooky ancient chinese guy some valuable Ghost Pearls and a huge mystery for the boys to solve Even when predictable these books always entertain I suppose some of them is the power of nostalgia but the books are also pretty well written

    This was a fun read and very entertaining even fifty years after it was written Definitely not Pulitzer Prize winning material but then it isn’t intended to be I debated whether to review this as I review most books – meaning my thoughts and point of view right now just having finished reading the book – or to look at it as my 12 or 13 year old self might have done To me book reviews are best when I get my current thoughts and impressions down so that’s what I’m going with and why this gets 4 stars If I had read this when I was 12 or 13 as I did read some of the other Three Investigators books at that time I probably would’ve given it a resounding 5 starsThe adventure the exploration and the settings were totally top notch Great stuff there all around and this is the kind of stuff a preteen or teen kid would focus on or at least I did when I was that age Cool slightly creepy “off limits” type places to explore are to be found on almost every page of this book starting off with a bang in front of an abandoned sprawling old mansion and goes from one cool place to the next Although it was given very little “screen time” or appropriately page time the hideoutheaduarters of the Three Investigators – a forgotten mobile home in a forgotten corner of a junkyard hidden beneath piles of scrap with an office a laboratory and a darkroom inside – wow Totally the type of thing my 11 12 13 year old self would have been over the moon about and a thrill to read And the rest of the settings were eually as awesome view spoilerA secret room hidden in the decaying mansion A sprawling vineyard and winery Eerie creepy caves running through the mountains and connection various places with lots of secrets and danger inside Be still my ghost of a preteen heart Then a hidden secret room in an undisclosed location in Chinatown in San Francisco complete with a 107 year old Chinese tycoon hide spoiler

    I read a few of the Three Investigators books when I was a kid and remembered them fondly A few years back I found a bunch of them at a book sale and picked them up This is one of those and I really enjoyed revisiting my childhood In this one an old house is being torn down when a mysterious green ghost appears Two of the investigators Bob Andrews and Pete Crenshaw are on hand for that first appearance Later the third member of the trio brainy Jupiter Jones joins in The boys solve the case of course after some adventures and close calls I won't give the plot away here I liked it An easy fun read

    This series and this book in particular was one of those I remember ordering from Scholastic Book Club when I was a kid I remember getting the box of books a couple times a year like a little Christmas at schoolI re read this for nostalgia's sake The Three Investigators being among my most remembered youth reads I dreamed of being a member of this group Their clubhouse is an abandoned motorhome hidden in the back of the junkyard that Jupiter Jones's the boy genius family owns And there are secret tunnels covered by junk that the boys use to get to it It even has its own telephone line Not to mention the periscope they rigged to see what's happening beyond their hiding space Ahhh the stuff of legends for a young boyimage error

    I remember liking this book uite a bit when I was a boy It is still good but not as good as I remember it I associate it uite a bit with the early Scooby Doo cartoons the ones with actual ghosts or phantoms people in sheets were may favorites so I think that is why this book was also a favoriteRe reading it to my kids I found it not uite as engaging as Terror Castle or the Stuttering Parrot Lots of interesting characters though with a couple neat locations and an engaging mystery as well

    2008 review Starting with one of the better opening seuences of the series this mystery maintains its initial pace and interest well Splitting the team in a well written fashion all of the characters are given a chance to shine and show their strengths right up to the climax Well told and well put together this is another sterling Robert Arthur effort and nicely follows the timeline with Bob having his brace removed just before the story begins2014 update Bob Andrews and Pete Crenshaw decide to investigate Green House an old mansion in Rocky Beach that is being torn down Hearing a ghastly scream they bump into a group of men from the neighbourhood who are also there to look at the house Together they investigate and see a green ghost moving through the old dusty hallways After they leave the ghost is spotted around Rocky Beach by several eye witnesses one of whom happens to be Chief of Police Reynolds When the house is investigated by the police the next day with the Three Investigators and Bob’s father in tow a hidden room is discovered which contains a skeleton the remains of Matthias Green’s wife and a string of ghost pearls Bob Pete are then invited to the Verdant Valley winery near San Francisco which is run by Matthias Green’s only living relative where very soon they encounter a mysterious aged Chinaman called Mr Won people who aren’t who they appear to be scary caves and the re appearance of the green ghost This has one of the better opening seuences of the series and manages to maintain the pace and intrigue well with a good supporting cast and excellent use of location the ‘haunted house’ the desolate canyons Chinatown Splitting the team is a masterstroke giving each character a chance to shine and show their strengths right up to the climax and the interplay between the three lads is well handled Well told and constructed this is one of the better Arthur novels and follows the timeline nicely it mentions Bob having his brace removed just before the story begins and this is the book where the Investigators get their ‘Volunteer Junior Assistant Deputy’ cards from Chief Reynolds My only niggle is the final chapter which can’t seem to decide if it’s part of the story or just a simple catch up of action though it does end on a high in Hitchcock’s office Good fun with a cracking pace this is highly recommended2018 update completely agree with the above an excellent read and it’s worth mentioning that this is the story to introduce Chief Reynolds to the series A cracking story
