Read full description of the books:
The Three Investigators take on another interesting case as they track down potentially valuable paintings. Several people want these paintings and it’s up to the boys to not only find them, but also determine why they are such a hot commodity. For me, the mystery started out rather unremarkably, but got much more interesting in the second half. I was distracted by the title that didn’t seem to fit the story. It just took a while for the clues to be revealed and then I understood what the title referred to.
I like that these mysteries show the boys using deductive reasoning and research skills to decipher the clues. Readers can follow the clues and see if they can solve the mystery. The explanation of how the case was ultimately solved allows the reader to see which elements they got right and which ones they missed along the way. All in all, a satisfactory entry in this solid detective series for young readers.
