The Three Investigators help a British boy find the inheritance willed to him by his great-uncle, an immense ruby of ancient lineage and seemingly cursed, the Fiery Eye. The will describes the Fiery Eye's hidden location in a word puzzle that they must decipher, and before some ruthless competition who are also on the ruby's trail. This story was unusual in that, for the first time, a girl their own age makes a brief appearance, with the promise of a future association -- and possibly a hint of romantic entanglement? -- with the Three Investigators. Also, Jupiter Jones is quite on his game in this book, thinking fast and inventively in unexpected situations with danger looming. ( )

Another of the fab Alfred Hitchcock themed mystery stories, featuring Jupiter Jones and his two friends. I was feeling a bit cold-in-the-head-y yesterday and only had 7 novels in 27 TBRs, and they were all way down the pile, so I picked this out of the pony and French pile. Great fun, the story is well plotted and twisty enough, but not confusing. And you know they will save the day, but not HOW, right up to the last page! ( )
