Cleverly put together, with some nice set pieces and a real sense of urgency, this works well enough that you allow the odd things - vegetarian societies and the reason behind the laughter - to pass by. A nice use of location works in its favour too - well worth a read. Apr 26, Mark rated it it was amazing Shelves: A decent and pacey read. Maybe 2 stars is a little unfair. This is a very acceptable entry in the series. The first is that there's a late reference to a mailed letter for help, but unless I've forgotten something, there was no earlier reference to this letter.
Meanwhile, one of the keys to the plot relied upon the fact that an Australian was able to fool an Englishman into thinking he was British. As with many of these books, these types of "stu Maybe 2 stars is a little unfair.
As with many of these books, these types of "stupid" American prejudices from the 60s seem fairly common. But in the modern day, many people can discern the difference between an Australian and British accent. And there's little chance a Brit would be fooled. Apr 25, LobsterQuadrille rated it liked it Recommends it for: There are some good twists and turns, enjoyable characters, and wonderful illustrations by Harry Kane, yet it's a pretty standard mystery from this series.
It still has plenty of nostalgic value to me, but this installment is not among my favorites. Jan 18, Jeff Stephenson rated it it was amazing. The book includes almost all of the classic Three Investigator elements such as the teenage investigators, their secret headquarters, the supporting characters including Alfred Hitchcock and many family members of the boys, the Rolls-Royce, etc.
Yet what stands out is the great writing of the book. Once again, the book is hard to put down once one begins to read it. Sometimes a series can fade or change when multiple authors begin to write the later books, but that does not appear to happen in this series. At least, this series has not YET started to fade. The final solution did involve a little bit more chance and luck than some of the previous titles in the series, but it is still a solid mystery that requires quite a bit of deduction and that is a key point for any of the Three Investigator books.
A good read for T3I fans of all ages, and yet the title could stand alone on its own merits if this title happens to be the only T3I book someone ever reads. Sep 16, Melissa rated it it was amazing. An indian treasure and a laughing shadow! Great one! I wonder whats next.
Mar 06, Vika. Ein eher durchschnittlich guter Fall der Fragezeichen, wie ich ja finde.
Nur eben nichts Besonderes wie ich finde. Dec 26, Rob rated it really liked it. When I was a child, I stumbled upon this series in my school library after I'd exhausted the Hardy Boys volumes available to me. To a certain extent, they are very similar to the Hardy Boys and Encyclopedia Brown mysteries I devoured as a kid, though this series featured three young investigators who, for reasons that are unclear to me now, have a close friendship with Alfred Hitchcock.
I remember being particularly enchanted by the headquarters of the three investigators: The fact that each book opened and closed with a conversation with Hitchcock was memorable, too. I had almost forgotten about the series until Kirstin and I stumbled upon several used copies in Lowry's Books in Three Rivers, Michigan. I thumbed through several copies, but they were mostly too pricey for a novelty download. Well, Kirstin went back, found this story reasonably priced and gave it to me for Christmas.
It was thoroughly enjoyable to fly through this little mystery and to re-enter a world I hadn't inhabited in years. Bukan karya terbaik William Arden, soalnya jadi bandingin dengan Rumah yang Mengkerut, salah satu buah karya Arden yang brilian sampai halaman terakhir.
Di buku ini dibuka dengan pengalaman aneh ala-ala scobydoo-nya seperti biasa yang mungkin akan jadi konyol jika ceritanya ga asyik. Bagian lawan jadi kawan itu sih yang bikin buku ini jadi menarik. Bagian misterinya bisa dibilang cukup standar untul ukuran trio detektif.
Perlu baca judul yang lain untuk ngrasain twist yang lebih gila, di buku Bukan karya terbaik William Arden, soalnya jadi bandingin dengan Rumah yang Mengkerut, salah satu buah karya Arden yang brilian sampai halaman terakhir. Perlu baca judul yang lain untuk ngrasain twist yang lebih gila, di buku ini ga terlalu memukau sayangnya. I love the Three Investigators, but I did find them much more fascinating when I was younger.
The stories are beginning to seem a little formulaic, but still entertaining.
In this one the trope of the international boy was back, this time a British chap. We had an evil villain out to steal a hidden treasure, and the boys got in trouble but got out of trouble as well.
Overall still good for any Three Investigators fan! Mar 18, Elizabeth rated it liked it Shelves: This series has hooked some kids in my daughter's class and that's never a bad thing. One of her classmates actually asked her to bring this book home to me as a book recommendation. Needless to say, it warmed my heart. It's a really good mystery series for upper elementary and I admit I wanted to see how it unfolded. It gave me pleasant flashbacks of watching Scooby-Doo as a child.
Apr 03, Jerry rated it really liked it. I read and enjoyed a few of these when I was a kid. I think the trappings got me: I was pleasantly surprised by The Laughing Shadow: The mystery is mysterious, the villains are well-hidden. I expect I will read more if I can find them. They seem to be hard to find in used bookstores. Dec 24, Ryan Mishap rated it really liked it Shelves: The shadow appeared to be laughing, he wanted people to think he hadn't a care in the world and that his dark plot was succeeding, but that pseudo-mirth was only covering the fact that the shadow was crying inside.
Dec 14, Andy Deemer rated it did not like it. As vapid and one-dimensional as Nancy Drew. I'd loved this series with a passion as a child. But it hasn't aged well.
The single star is only for the scenes with Alfred Hitchcock. Those are classic Dec 06, Lauchlin rated it liked it Shelves: Dec 26, Olivia O'Rourke rated it really liked it. I really like these books. They have a gold plated Rolls Royce which Jupiter has won in a contest. With the car, there also came a chauffeur called Worthington. Worthington likes to drive the boys everywhere they go.
This series is an addictive series. When I first read it, I couldn't stop reading other books of the series.
I hope you can read all of the books and enjoy them as much as This book is a great book to read. I hope you can read all of the books and enjoy them as much as I did, even though I had only read 9 books of this series.
Good luck reading them! Jul 21, Steven Vincent rated it it was amazing Shelves: Great mystery story for mystery fans both young and old. If you, like me, read these books when you were young I urge you to read them all again. They will bring back wonderful memories and entertain you just as much now as then.
I'm beginning to think that these sorts of novels were an early introduction to horror for me either that or it was Scooby Doo. Perhaps age has befuddled my memory and I'm thinking of Bugs Bunny.

Kali ini Trio Detektif dipekerjakan oleh remaja seumuran mereka, cucu seorang seniman terkenal Rocky Beach namun eksentrik bernama Alexander Potter yang menghilang begitu saja.

Jupe dan kawan-kawan pun nyaris celaka saat melakukan penyidikan. Ternyata semua m Aku dapat buku ini gratis dari temen kakakku.
Ternyata semua masalah ini ada kaitannya dengan sebuah negara bekas kerajaan bernama Lapatia, yang berhubungan erat dengan masa lalu Potter. Mungkin banyak yang tak terlalu menikmati buku Trio Detektif ini. Secara pribadi aku berpendapat buku ini salah satu kisah Trio Detektif yang terbaik.
Karena aku penggemar berat sejarah, terutama sejarah yang berhubungan dengan monarki, apalagi yang dibumbui intrik dalam kejatuhannya seperti Kekaisaran Romanov. Wangsa Azimov, yang seluruh anggota keluarganya dibantai rezim komunis, dan pewarisnya tak ditemukan jenazahnya setidaknya bagi Potter.
Kelihatannya buku ini memang terinspirasi dari kejatuhan wangsa Romanov ya. Pokoknya suka banget. Previously rated September 16 Why I Reread this Book: It's one of 5 Three Investigators books by M.

The other leads are conveniently explained in the Three Investigator's report to Alfred Hitchcock at the very end of the book which leaves the story simple and hard to solve. The pot in this case is not broken but opened to reveal the secret of the tale! Back in the day, I enjoyed the Three Investigators far more than any of the other children's mystery series. Why did their tone fit?
I think it was the contemporary setting and the resourcefulness of the characters in their junkyard business headquarters. Okay, contemporary seems a silly description of the series now, with the books produced in the late 60's and early 70's, but I remember the rise of disco, so it was pretty current stuff for me.
Other series felt a little tired and remote, but I Back in the day, I enjoyed the Three Investigators far more than any of the other children's mystery series. Other series felt a little tired and remote, but I wanted to hang out with Jupiter Jones. So finding this copy somewhere in my travels, I was eager to return to my old friends and enjoy a romp with them.
And enjoy I did. Enough to find out what kind of legacy they left, and to learn they are a Big Deal in Germany, where books are still being produced.
I found this pretty gratifying and not entirely surprising, being a bit of a Europhile myself. In my humble opinion, I think the series could, with a little strategic promotion, be revived here and be enjoyed by a new generation.
The Three Investigators is a juvenile detective series published in the 60s, 70s, and 80s that spans about 43 books. They feature three teenage boys who mostly investigate paranormal type stuff that they debunk somewhat like Scooby-Doo or other abnormal crimes that the police do not handle. They report their cases to Alfred Hitchcock or a fake director depending on which versions you read.
Their base of operations is hidden away in the depths of a junkyard and it has multiple hidden entrances. I discovered these books in the library during middle school and promptly read them all. As such, I have a lot of nostalgia for these books. Unfortunately it seems only a handful are available in Kindle format at this point. The Mystery of the Flaming Footprints is 15 in the series. The story itself was OK but this was mostly about the trip down memory lane for me as I got reacquainted with all the characters.
This only took about 2 hours to read.
Dec 31, M. I picked this off the shelf on impulse. My aunt bought a set of these for me as a kid, and I kept but never read them. This book was an unexpected and welcome surprise! The Hardy Boys remain the joy of my reading youth, but the Three Investigators should have been there too. These characters have dimension, flaws and layers. Also atypical for young adult books is the dialogue. It is not sti I picked this off the shelf on impulse.
It is not stiff or forced, and there is a lot of sarcasm and wit. There is a lot of edge here, surprisingly. The plot isn't bad, either The answer to the mystery is long ago and far away.

I think this must be the first one I bought at a Scholastic Book Fair and hooked me on Jupe and the boys. I mean, come on, who doesn't want a secret hideout with gadgets and tunnels in a junk yard?

The boys band together to get to the bottom of things, Jupiter figures it all out natch and he's a little less obnoxious in this one.
It's a good one, to be sure. Remember, I read them again so you don't have to! Or go ahead, because I like this one the most. My poor paperback is nearly falling apart at this point. WKKPL A clunky plot with weird pacing, still worth reading for real fans of the series but definitely not a good introduction to the boys. I really don't think Carey had any idea where it was all going to end when she started scattering clues.
In the end she really had to reach to fit everything back together, and the denouement was rushed. Still, if you're a reader of the series and want to spend a short time in a familiar setting with characters you know, might as well give this one a go.
Tapi dengan ketidaksempurnaan itu saja, saya dapat menikmati bacaan yang satu ini. Mungkin memori masa kecil saya cukup kental dengan TV show amerika berbau action jadi I really love ceritanya menarik juga, meski place setting-nya monoton.

One token girl and you double your potential market. It never occurred to me to read Nancy Drew, either, because that was for girls.
Come to think of it, how come only Nancy got billing? Jupiter may have been the brains of the outfit, but the title isn't "Jupiter Jones and the Other Two Investigators. View all 3 comments.
Dec 09, David rated it really liked it. One of my favorites in the series when I was a kid. The action is good throughout, though the ending is a bit of a letdown. As an adult looking back, it's not as good as I remember, but still a decent read. Also, I don't like the way Chief Reynolds is portrayed in this book.
He is a jerk to the trio, whereas in the other books he works with them. Jul 10, Ewan rated it liked it Shelves: Re-reading a couple of these for some childhood nostalgia. Just reading up on them, it seems this is a later entry in the series, with a different author from the original books. I surprised myself by remembering most of the plot Eastern European nobility , even though I haven't read it in 30 years.
I'll need to read one of the "original" books next I think. Jan 15, Nuning Indani rated it liked it Shelves: This three investigators series has 3 different authors so far that I've known. And amazingly there are some annoying descriptive in the books which are not written by Robert Arthur. I think, especially Carey, should read more carefully about the character in this series so she will not make any annoying mistakes again.
On the other hand, the story itself is good. For some reason, even though the Three Investigators live in a fictional town in California, I find it off-putting for them to solve mysteries revolving around the royalty of fictional countries in Europe.
Why put so much more energy into the Lapathian lineages than what actually causes the titular flaming footprints?
