Demian's Thoughts:

This is almost identical to Foley's earlier book in this series; lots of silly espionage stuff with very little plot. My copy of this book (a first edition) seems to be missing something on page 22; the page doesn't seem to be an ending, nor does it have any instructions on where to turn next....

KJB's Thoughts:

Another favorite of mine in this series, and again written by Louise Munro Foley. As in The Train of Terror, one of the things I really like about her style is how characters in the book can be radically different, changing from friend to foe, depending on which path you take. And I'm still in love with her take on espionage, mystery, murder, and humor. I also like how David Febland picks one illustration in each book to sign his full name with a flourish. I wish I'd had an internship like this in high school!

Errata:Page 22 should include "turn to PAGE 62".
