I read these books to my 10 year old son and he absolutely loves them. The characters are great and all the books have the right blend of spooky happenings, suspense, action and danger. Lots of creeping around at night. This one has a ghost, a stolen statue, and staking out the suspects at an apartment complex with surveliance cameras. We read these mysteries in the dark outside on the porch and my son is always begging for more. The chapters always end at just the right moment, leaving you hanging, so you'll have to come back for more!

I love how the series is set in the Los Angeles area in its Hitchock heydey. All the place and street names add a nostalgic mood. Plus as you read the series, you get to know and love the characters of the three investigators, Jupiter Jones, Pete Crenshaw and Bob Andrews along with all the characters at the Jones Salvage yard.

I'm 28 now and was first introduced to The Three Investigators in 5th grade. I now teach English to 8th graders thanks in large part to my love of reading, flamed in my youth for a love of this series of books. The Mystery of the Invisible Dog was my favorite book in this series, and may be (along with White Fang) my favorite book of childhood. As a mystery, the story had few flaws. The mood and tone of this story hit just the right cord with me. I loved the entire series because it did not condescend to its audience, assuming a certain amount of knowledge about the world in each story. This book was no different in its reference to the Carpathian mountains of Europe and references to Catholic practices as part of the story. I highly recommend this book as truly representative and maybe the best book of the series.
