Bought 02 May 2007 – charity shop

For years, I was wondering where I’d read about young investigator Jupiter Jones and his cohorts. Then I found this Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators novel and had my answer.

The conceit of the series is that J Jones is reporting on his adventures to the great film director (with an aim of filming them? I won’t know till I have the first one!). While dated now, published in the 1960s, this was still fresh, amusing (none of the boys is let off for their private tics, Jones’ long words being the main culprit!) and a good enough puzzle. I actually had to add 5 minutes to my lunch break to read to the end of the chapter!

If anyone finds any of these in their charity shop huntings, please think of me…
