Are you frustrated with the hassle of trying to buy Three Investigators books through on-line auctions?  It's easy to get outbid at the last minute or to find yourself in the midst of a bidding war and paying much more than you know you should have for a book.  Occasionally you'll receive a book you purchased at auction only to find that it was misrepresented by the seller, sometimes intentionally.  Are you tired of searching through hundreds of over-priced Three Investigators books at on-line bookstores just to find the one or two bargains that might be there or visiting the used bookstores in your area with little or no luck?  Well, you've found the answer to your problem!

                                 marker slash on the top edge of the textblock.  No other seller would bother to
                                 mention it because it is so tiny and inconsequential but there is a pencil-point dot
                                 of rubbing to the top edge of the rear cover.  Rare opportunity to purchase an
