In book ten, Dick is woken by a light flashing through his window. Is someone trying to send him a coded message? When the Famous Five hear of an escaped convict in the area, they are on red alert. The police won't help, so the Five have no choice - yet again, they'll be solving this mystery by themselves...


Dipping into the next three adventures of the Famous Five, and this one saw them go for a long hike… although obviously that turned into not so much walking and more of an adventure. This time they were following a riddle that was inadvertently given to them - something of a treasure hunt - and I liked that aspect of it, unravelling the clues and determined to make it work. It’s so interesting how the characters develop in each book, this time the focus seemed to be on Julian who was very bolshy and almost rude this time out - standing up for their rights and not taking any nonsense from what could be quite scary strangers. Curious what their next adventure might be!

Rating: 3 / 5
