THE COUNTDOWN MYSTERIES BOOKS

 

The Countdown Mysteries™ is an exciting series of mystery books written especially for children who love a good mystery. Naturally, being the Countdown Mysteries, the series begins with the letter "Z" and counts down through the alphabet towards "A".

 

In the small town of Anchor Bay, three young detectives work closely together to solve mysteries and crimes.  Together, they are always at least one step in ahead of Officer Perkins from the local police precinct, and lead the hapless officer trailing behind as they use clues and their combined intelligence to solve each mystery or crime.  

 

Working out of a high-tech basement clubhouse, and using an array of cool gadgets, they put their love of reading mystery books to good use. In each of these exciting books, we discover whether or not the intrepid trio will solve the case before the countdown clock runs out.

 

The only question is, which book will be your favourite?
