The first book in The Three Investigators mystery series.
Originally written in 1964 (the year I was born), which I first read when I was 12 in 1976, and re-read many times since. I just love this series. It was so well crafted by Robert Arthur, that the series continued long after his death, with authors taking up his mantle – to a total of 43 books in the main series, with a further 11 books in the Crimebusters series until 1990.
The series has such a large international fandom, that the German fans continued to write and publish The Three Investigators books, adding to the series.
Finding a genuine haunted house for a movie set sounds like fun — and a great way to generate publicity for the Three Investigators’ new detective agency. But when the boys arrive for an overnight visit at Terror Castle — home of a deceased horror-movie actor — they soon find out how the place got its name!
I so wanted to be one of the Three Investigators, and be able to use one of the entrances to Headquarters…like Red Gate Rover!
