    One thought on “The Green Turtle Mystery”

    1. This mystery, aimed at children, is really quite enjoyable. Djuna has been sent to the city to stay with Mrs. Silvernails, a friend of his guardian's, while Miss Annie recovers from an illness. While in the city, he makes friends with a newspaper boy named Benjamin Franklin and a reporter by the name of Socker Furlong. Socker is assigned to investigate a deserted house that is rumored to be haunted and to discover whether there's a newsworthy story to be told. Socker's main ambition in life is t [...]

    2. This is a 1940's children's mystery I believe it is the third in a "series" that definitely does not need to be read in order (I have read only this one). 12-year-old Djuna and his new friend Ben (also ~12), along with their new adult-friend, lazy but brilliant news reporter Socker Furlong, set out to figure out what's really going on in the haunted mansion on Carpenter street.

    3. Picked it up because it was by Ellery Queen. Figured out after the first page that it was a kid's book, but read it in two hours, so not much lost. Reasonably good for the demographic it was aiming at, had a few chuckling moments.

    4. Djuna solves the mystery of a haunted house, along with his new friend Ben Franklin. Champ only shows up in the second-half of the book, but provides a strong clue to what's happening.
