Alfred Hitchcock and The Three Investigators in The Mystery of the Vanishing Treasure Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Alfred Hitchcock and The Three Investigators in The Mystery of the Vanishing Treasure

Alfred Hitchcock's team of three young investigators are at it again in the Mystery of the Vanishing Treasure. Jupiter Jones, Pete Crenshaw and Bob Andrews work together to solve some of Rocky Beach, California's toughest crimes.

This story is a combination of several mysteries which will take them to the Peterson Museum where the world famous Nagasami Jewels are on display for a special exhibition. They just so happen to show up on children's day and amidst the chaos a robbery occurs. The boys would love nothing more than to take this challenge on but Mr. Saito Togati, the head of security, will have nothing of it. The boys are terribly disappointed but are soon on a new track of investigation. Don't worry, the story gets back to the theft a little later.

As the boys discuss the events of the day, Jupiter's aunt informs him that he has a call from Mr. Alfred Hitchcock himself. A new and important case has arisen and he wants the boys on it right away. It seems that Ms. Agatha Agawam, Hitchcock's writer friend, is having trouble with none other than gnomes. Yes, the mysterious wee ones from the Black Forest. Of course no one believes her except Hitchcock, who knows her to be a credible woman. The three investigators pack their bags and head for downtown Los Angeles to catch a glimpse of the annoying little creatures and prove that Ms. Agatha is not a nut.

This is a well written interwoven tale that is action packed. You'll be introduced to Rawley, the night watchman, Mr. Frank, an actor wannabe, a not so merry cast of little people and Hans, the loyal chauffer. Locals take you to an old mansion in LA, a vintage theatre in it's last days, pier 37 and of course, Alfred Hitchcock‘s personal office.
