THE MYSTERY OF THE SINISTER SCARECROW (1979)
Possibly my favorite Three Investigators story. Everything about this one works for me. The settings (farm field out in a valley), the footwork (I love the scene where Pete pretends to be someone's nephew), the suspects( A whole plethora of house guests!), and even who the culprit turns out to be!
A scarecrow is following a girl around and causing her anguish, and the ploy of having the scarecrow appear “only at dusk” is wonderfully spooky! The Boys are talking about the case at a restaurant, and an electrical repairman relates that he saw the scarecrow running around a corner of the Mosby Museum...creepy!
All this plus lots of nice details about the world of Museum curators and Entomologists. ( )
