The Secret of the Three Impostors
There's trouble in Rocky Beach! A rash of burglaries has plagued the downtown business community - and The Three Investigators are the prime suspects! Now they must work overtime to clear their name before the big banquet in their honor. Have the Three Investigators really turned to a life of crime - or has a secret from their past come back to haunt them?
A puzzling paragraph in Alfred Hitchcock's last will and testament leads The Three Investigators to England on a wild treasure hunt. Eager to help the daughter of their old friend, the boys quickly delve into the mystery. But they're not alone! Bickering relatives, cantankerous gardeners, and a certain maid who won't stay dead are but a few of the shady characters with a keen interest in getting their share of the loot!
The Adventure of the Bronze Claw
The unthinkable has happened in Rocky Beach. Titus and Mathilda Jones have announced that they're going on vacation to visit Titus' long-lost brother in Oregon! Jupiter, Pete, and Bob quickly see an opportunity for adventure and agree to come along for the ride. The Three Investigators soon realize they've got more adventure than they bargained for. A strange sea artifact that appears then disappears, a 200 year old pirate's legend, and a bizarre cast of characters makes this the boy's strangest case yet!
The Case of the Restless Gargoyle
Price Eldridge is seeing things. At least that's what his son thinks! When The Three Investigators are hired to capture a gargoyle that won't sit still, they begin to think his son is right. The retired pilot can barely see a stop sign! But a series of eerie events quickly change their mind. Who is prowling about the Mission Temple? The hot-tempered construction man? The cantankerous lawyer? Or is it something much more sinister . . . something evil that lurks in the shadows, just waiting to pounce!
The Curse of the Mysterious Traveler
Everyone wants the monkey's paw - but to whom does it belong? The mysterious traveler with the wicked knife? The ancient Gypsy who guards a secret? The sinister partners in crime? It's up to The Three Investigators to find out! In a frenzied race against time, Jupiter Jones, Pete Crenshaw and Bob Andrews find themselves scrambling from one end of Rocky Beach to the other in search of clues. Can they decipher the paw's cryptic secret before they fall victim to the traveler's fiendish curse? Or will a cunning foe beat them at their own game?
