I like this story because it is set in the 50's. No silly gadgets, the children have to rely on their wits alone. It figures the obligatory old ruins, the sea, the secret passage and the enigmatic figures seen through binoculars.
As much as I enjoyed the story, I deplore it was a short story. I wanted to give it 4.5 stars for this. It finished at about 70% (on my Kindle) of the story and the rest was the begining chapters of The Mystery of Smugglers Cove, which I have to say, is excellent (we read it first).
But you should not be disappointed if you buy it. It is for smaller children, maybe up to 10. Good English, no slang. I would recommend to read The Mystery of Smugglers Cove first, although not necessary but it does introduce the children and why they are living at Smugglers Cove.
I think the Moxham full length books, (there are currently seven), that feature these same characters are more rewarding than the short stories, which shouldn't be surprising. In the books you have more characters, more red herrings, more adventures and just a bigger canvas. For older readers, or for kids who have read all of the stories, I'd be on the lookout for those books. (For what it's worth, I'd try to read the first book, "Mystery of Smuggler Cove", first. It sets up the locale, the four kids, and the supporting characters. After that you can pretty much mix up the books and stories and read them out of order without missing the thread.)
The short stories are nice little snacks, and are great as an introduction to old-school mystery/action/adventure. The kids are just sketched in because you are familiar with them. There are fewer scenes, a little less suspense, and the wrap ups are a bit more pat. But, that's the nature of the short story and it shouldn't dissuade one from scooping them up to read as fun quickies.
Consider this story.Read more ›
I would rate it at 99 out of 100.
I hope you continue to write these brilliant books.
