Summer 1977. The Blyton Summer Detective Club (of Blyton Hills, a small mining town in Oregon's Zoinx River Valley) solved their final mystery and unmasked the elusive Sleepy Lake monster - another low-life fortune hunter trying to get his dirty hands on the legendary riches hidden in Deboën Mansion. And he would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for those meddling kids.

The way the tropes I grew up with as a kid worked into a fun and engaging story. It was fun picking out the nods to Scooby and all the other kid detective stories.

A well written and fun story with well fleshed out characters. A post apocalyptic steampunk adventure at its finest. A very good reader for Audible that really brought more life to the story.

Before the movie, this is the novel that gave life to Hawkeye Pierce, Trapper John, Hot Lips Houlihan, Frank Burns, Radar O'Reilly, and the rest of the gang that made the 4077th MASH like no other place in Korea or on earth. The doctors who worked in the Mobile Army Surgical Hospitals (MASH) during the Korean War were well trained but, like most soldiers sent to fight a war, too young for the job. In the words of the author, "a few flipped their lids, but most of them just raised hell, in a variety of ways and degrees."

A lovely story, I am sad to have it end. As much as I would more, the story ended as it should, my imagination to carry it on.
