    1. This was another good mystery from the Investigators. This one concerns a "haunted" mirror for a small European country, and as usual there's much more to the story than meets the eye.The story seemed a little tighter than some of the past volumes, and was a good read. Nothing ground breaking, but just what I'd expect from the Three Investigators.


    2. original 2010 review - Quite by chance, the Three Investigators encounter Mrs Darnley and her house filled with mirrors, including the goblin glass which appears to be cursed by an embittered sorcerer. Filled with some genuinely spooky moments, a cracking mystery and great (and often larger-than-life) characters, this is a storming entry into the series and has everything you want from a Three Investigator book. All of the lads get a chance to shine, the writing is top-notch and the ending highl [...]

    4. Eine meiner absoluten Lieblingsfolgen. Schon das Hörspiel ist phantastisch, das Buch ist nochmal eine Ecke besser. Eine herrlich poetische Sprache, wirklich schöner Grusel und eine in sich stimmige Geschichte, wie sie bei den neueren Folgen leider nicht mehr vorkommt Auch Justus ist noch nicht der allwissende dauerpenetrante Nervtöter, zu dem ihn die aktuellen Autoren gemacht haben, sondern ermittelt im Verband mit seinen beiden Freunden, was sich sehr angenehm liest. Ich habe diese Geschicht [...]


    5. I liked this one so much better than the Shrinking House mystery. This mystery involved a ghost and I really like ghost stories. A woman the Investigators know starts to have problems because of a mirror that someone wants to buy. The mirror is rumored to be haunted, and the rumor seems to be true when a face starts appearing in it.


    6. AH&T3I Update: 21 read, 7 hardbacks to go (and then the remaining 15 paperbacks)I knew that Mary Virginia (M.V.) Carey would grow on me as a writer. Her earliest T3I titles stuck me in just some odd ways--nothing too terrible, just in some odd ways. With this book, she seems to have finally found the ghost of series creator Robert Arthur and sticks closer to his original ideas for the story line. That being said, she used a number of standard T3I elements--the 3 boys, the Salvage Yard and Se [...]


    7. Strangely enough, it was Worthington, the British chauffer who introduced the Three Investigators to their newest case. His friend, the eccentric Mrs. Darnley, is a collector of antiques. The pride and joy of her collection is the mirror – an enormous, grotesque thing with an aura of mystery about it. Even more mysterious are the constant attempts of one, Senor Santora, to purchase the mirror and the presence of a shadowy burglar in the library room, where the mirror is held. What is the fasci [...]


    8. Tak, dočítanéKeď som bol takýto malý, chodil som si do knižnice v Strážove požičiavať duševnú potravu a pravidelne víťazili Pátrači. Keď som ich uvidel v Knihobežníckej poličke, okamžite som po nich siahol a potom som mal strach začať čítať, lebo som sa bál, že si zničím všetky príjemné spomienky. Ale prekvapkal som sám sebaPríbeh je jednoduchý, koniec koncov je to pre deti, ale zároveň ako vystrihnutý z nejakého polit-thrilleru. Nevinná záhada straši [...]


    9. I felt a little weird including this in my tally for books read this year because it's a YA book and it's short. But it's not much shorter than a couple of other books I've already listed, so in it goes.I read this book basically on accident. I was at a library used book sale, and saw the name of Alfred Hitchcock. I'm currently reading one of his biographies and as often happens in my life, as soon as I develop an interest in someone, or learn something new, suddenly I come across examples of th [...]


    10. I liked this story when I was younger but it doesn't stand up to the test of time. There are turgid pages describing the politics of an invented country, Ruffino. When I reread this last year, only one question echoed in my mind: who cares? Jean, Jeff and Mrs. Darnley are one-dimensional characters. A strong elderly woman would emerge later in the person of Mrs. Macomber in Death Trap Mine. She seems to be what Ms. Carey is striving for here but can't quite get. And just like in Monster Mountain [...]


    11. 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. [...]


    12. For a preteen to adolescent mystery, "Secret of the Haunted Mirror" is an entertaining page-turner, in which the Three Investigators are called upon to unravel the mystery of the ghost in the mirror that has been terrorizing their client, an eccentric grandmother. She collects a wide range of mirrors and comes upon the "goblin mirror" that proves to be a standout from her collection since a ghost apparently resides in it. Actually it's not very scary and the solution has little to do with the gh [...]


    13. I plucked this from a pile of Three Investigators books my husband has from when he was a kid. I was surprised I'd never read any them because I loved this sort of thing as a youngster, plus they were apparently endorsed by Alfred Hitchcock! Even before I was old enough to see his movies, I was a huge fan of his tv shows, along with Twilight Zone, Amazing Stories, etc.Anyway, it was pretty much like a 150 page episode of Scooby Doo. Fun, if a bit dated, and the characters aren't that deep. Still [...]

    15. hahahahahaha!!! this was the first book dari seri 'trio detektif' yang aku baca i remembered ngrasa takut banget pas baca buku ini dan ngintilin my nanny yang lagi sibuk jemur baju, sembari tanganku tetep mbalik2 halaman buku ini thank GOD, di bagian akhir ada penjelasan rasional di balik misteri bayangan kepala hantu ijo yang melayang-layang di tengah cermindan demikianlah dimulai kegilaanku membaca seri ini jupe, pete, and bob, i'll always love them!!!


    16. This was one of the last Hardy Boys mystery novels that I read as a young adult. This Houdini-esque mystery is quite good as the Hardy Boys try to figure out the mystery of a haunted mirror and the after dark acts going on around a foreboding mansion. The HB team is in fine form in this formula book.


    17. Still as much fun as it was when I was a kid. Anyone who wants to find a good mystery series for kids, skip the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew and get the Three Investigators. It'll also be a fun introduction to a time before cell phones and the internet. :D


    18. My Rating System:* couldn't finish, ** wouldn't recommend, *** would recommend, **** would read again, ***** have read again.




    19. Von den früheren Folgen eine der wenigen, die mich nicht wirklich begeistert. Einzig die Auflösung des Telefonanrufs ist immer klasse. Justus hört einfach gut zu! :D










    20. Loved itThis again is a great mystery and a wonderful read. Love the character's and the detail of the surroundings. I didn't put it down from the moment I started .
