The 23rd installment of the Three Investigator series, a favorite of mine as a boy. This one involves a search for a missing and valuable Crystal Dog, and follows the tried-and-true formula until the end, when one or two of the inexplicable mysteries surrounding the case turn out to be genuinely paranormal. Astral Projection, for example, is an element of the story here. The departure from form doesn't really detract from the story itself, but it doesn't particularly enhance it either. ( )

A great story that is easy to read. ( )

A really enjoyable mystery to read and figure out. ( )

In the bottom quarter of the series. Some good deduction and twists but too many loose ends. ( )

Another supernatural-themed one by MV Carey again. Lots of interesting characters, (Burnout hippy Sonny Elmquist and cute over-eater Gwen Chalmers, for starts!) and a few spooky things to think about like astral projection and phantom priests! This is one I re-read most frequently, for some reason.
By the way, there really isn’t any “Invisible Dog” to speak of (At least as depicted on the cover), but to explain more would be to give away the plot...! ( )
