This series of interactive mysteries is an attempt to bring gamebooks into the digital age. In each book, the reader reads up to a certain point, then has to go to an interactive website which provides clues and allows the user to make choices. After each website session is complete, the user is directed back to a particular page of the book. The adventures are fairly linear, but they're certainly not devoid of interactivity, particularly at the end when it comes time to name the culprit.

Unfortunately, as of this writing, the publisher has taken the online content down, so there is no longer any way to play through these books due to the missing interactive components.


1. The Case of the Killer Bugs
2. When Nightmares Come True
3. The Scent of Crime
4. The Runaway Ride
