The cement was still soft, leaving the impress of a finger. The game-keeper is murdered during the second attempt. Some companies will even send a team of installation experts at your request to help. Robert Houghton's Review Book three is also rather on the weak side, but it is this book that seems to provide a 'watershed' between the slightly simpler plots of the early series to the more complicated ones that are to follow. The mystery of the locked Yellow Room is explained thus: Larsan assaulted Ms Stangerson earlier in the day than originally thought, but she hid the traces of the attack and locked herself away. Larsan appeared to vanish on the two occasions he was nearly collared as he was one of the pursuers.

The Five have fun with Fatty's new techniques, particularly disguises. He fools everyone with his French student act - even Mr Goon! Fatty is now 13 and Bets 9, and Fatty has learnt some new and exciting detective skills including writing in invisible ink and escaping from a locked room in the school term, and has plenty of tricks up his sleeve. They had a child before he was arrested and his identity revealed to her. In fact it appears that Fatty, at least in this story, is the main character upon which the adventure revolves.

Illustrated by Joseph Abbey, it was published by Methuen. Our parents forbade us ever to discuss the matter or ask any questions about it. Actually there is a mystery. At the start of the book, Fatty had taught the other Find-Outers a number of detective tricks, and as we all know Blyton will use them in the mystery at some stage. Each secret passageway is custom-designed and will be shipped with a full set of instructions on how to install it.

The Secret Rooms: A True Gothic Mystery by Catherine Bailey

Both spent their lives locked away in homes and hospitals, ignored by their family. This entry in the series has the same formulaic plot and wooden prose of the first two books, although Blyton does manage to develop her characters somewhat.

The only detailed description emerged early in the s, when the writer James Wentworth-Day spent time at Glamis while writing a history of the Bowes-Lyon family. The third entry in Enid Blyton's fifteen-book Five Find-Outers and Dog series, about a group of children who spend their school holidays playing detectives, The Mystery of the Secret Room returns the reader to the village of Peterswood, just as Larry, Daisy, Pip, and Fatty are coming home for the Christmas break.
