Notes:
1.) This is the book that introduced the fictional character of Hector Sebastian after Alfred Hitchcock's death in 1980 and this title was not revised along with previous titles in the series in 1984/1985 which makes for an interesting glitch when reading the "Keyhole" series straight through.
2.) As with all of The Three Investigators paperback titles printed in 1981, this book can be found with the Mystery Quiz/Bookmark page attached inside the front or back cover.
