And the story concludes. This is by far the weakest story of the trilogy, but it does wrap things up in a nice bow. The Murder Crew discover that Green was a twin, but the mystery of which twin really died, who is the bad guy and can we ever recover because the biggest question in the last murders of the series. Part of me wanted a Happily Ever After, or at least a funny end. But we got a Clue movie end. Meaning there were multiple ends, and one could choose an end, or just accept that the final end was the real end. This was the worst book of the group and felt like more of an afterthought. They did not have Tim Curry to hold everything together and get us laughing. I am glad I read the series, but I am even more glad it is over.… (mere)

The Short Version:
A fun middle-grade/YA mystery inspired by the board game (and the 1985 movie) with clever backstories tying characters to their game counterparts and some of the more outrageous names being tied to more believable last names. Colonel Mustard thus become Sam "Mustard" Maestor - a new arrival fresh from military school. Beth Picach is a tennis star who dyes the ends of her hair blue. Professor Plum becomes a research-obsessed science genius who barely looks beyond his test tubes. Mr. Green becomes townie and scholarship student Vaughn Green - who helps with maintenance and janitorial work in addition to classes. Mrs. White is the dorm proctor.

I liked this, and I enjoyed how all of the secrets flying around leaves plot for the sequels. It's fairly lightweight, but makes full use of the secret passages and familiar lay-out of the mansion. I will happily read the next.

This was a fast, exciting read, as many supernatural books of late have been. Nice butt-kicking main character, great setting (Rome), great monsters to fight (unicorns), and original in many ways. The reason it's a 3 and not a 4 is simply that there were some confusing parts, parts that I think many young people would get tripped up on. Some of the characters loyalties were never clear, and there were some actions with shaky motivation. BUT, a great read nonetheless.
