The find-outers' fifth mystery sees them occupy the end of the summer holidays trying to crack the investigation that PC Goon is clearly chasing.
Unlike some of the earlier stories, this book felt less dated, although I did notice that my copy had been 'updated' so the characters use decimalised currency. I wonder if later copies have taken inflation into account as well?
A good mystery for children with a number of opportunities for the reader to try to work things out before the characters. A lot of comedic moments throughout make this a light and enjoyable read.
