The Mystery of the Nervous Lion
Slowly and menacingly a massive, thick-maned lion advanced towards Jupe, Pete and Bob, head down and yellow eyes narrowed. Its huge jaws opened to expose long, frightening fangs. The Three Investigators were there to discover what had been disturbing the beast, but now it was they who were nervous.

In their sixteenth adventure the Three Investigators are put in touch with a local animal handler to investigate his lion.
It’s a pretty standard story for the series, with the team facing peril, but lacks some of the more interesting horror aspects, or intriguing mysteries like we saw in the previous story.
Nothing to criticise really apart from the almost total absence of female characters. But also nothing to write home about.
