The police won't help, so the Five have no choice - yet again, they'll be solving this mystery by themselves...

Simply the best
As Tina Turner once howled.
This is the best of the mid range Famous Fives. Brimming with spooky atmosphere, a couple of sinister baddies, and excitement on a dark, isolated lake. The scenes with Dick in the barn are sublime. An easy 5 stars, although the modern cover art is just vile beyond words.
