    Neat story. I liked the mystery and how the 3 kids went on an expedition into caves. They used a poem to help solve the mystery.

Go on a treasure hunt, of course. Steve, Jenny and Matt do just that after Steve finds a map sewn into the lining of a suitcase he bought for fifty-cents at a storage action — an auction to which a “strange feeling” lured him. A poem — the handiwork of Elias Darby, a pirate, no less, who found religion at the end of his piracy career — containing mysterious clues to the treasure’s whereabouts is hidden with the map in the suitcase’s lining. Oh, and there’s a shifty, international jewel thief also seeking the prize, a magic sapphire as it turns out. So, guess what. After decoding the first clue encoded in the poem, the trio of young detectives — who, by the way, have dubbed themselves the Decoders (!) — heedless of present danger, dash off to an abandoned mine suitably named Grim Reaper’s Mine. A turn of a page or two and the Decoders are inside a mountain attempting to unravel clues and locate hidden passages that would test Indiana Jones’ wits. Meanwhile, the bad ol’ jewel thief (don’t forget about him) and his two equally dastardly henchmen, are outside the cave waiting to snatch the sapphire if the youngsters find it. This yarn is standard fare — young people on the trail of treasure. The storyline existed even before Jim Hawkins climbed aboard the Hispaniola and sailed for the treasure isle. Nevertheless, this book is fun to read. It clippty-clips along at a pace designed to attract young readers who live in a world of competitive … well, devices, let’s say. Luckily, to insure a successful hunt, the Decoders in quest of the magic sapphire have tools Jim Hawkins could not have imagined — cell phones, the internet, and the ever-trusty flashlight.

    An auction bid presents an old suitcase with cross-swords and a skull, so, naturally Steve bids on it. It turns out that there was an old map hidden in there of The Grim Reaper's Mine. Suddenly, the Decoders must configure the cryptic poem and seek the answers behind the mysterious papers. Could there still be gold in that old mine? Through research ,the kids find out the legend of The Magic Sapphire and the power it supposedly gives to whoever owns it. Interesting.

It turns out that there was an old map hidden in there of The Grim Reaper's Mine. Suddenly, the Decoders must configure the cryptic poem and seek the answers behind the mysterious papers. Could there still be gold in that old mine? Through research ,the kids find out the legend of The Magic Sapphire and the power it supposedly gives to whoever owns it. Interesting. Only a good person can find the stone. A real live treasure hunt! Can they find the treasure before the jewel thief does? This is another fun adventure book. It seems like these kids are always figuring out a code and going on a treasure hunt, making most of the books in the series pretty much the same. The bulk of the story is the actual decoding―going line by line, analyzing each lame text, to figure out the special meaning. Still, these kids are smart and witty, and young readers will enjoy this little tale.

    The characters were more diverse and modern, and I liked that the three children all had something to contribute to the solving of the case. It did lack some of the real characters we expect from the cosy mystery genre, but the story was fast paced and and kept me hooked all the way through, and had a little twist at the end I didn’t expect. This would be great reading for any middle-grade child. Read the full review here: https://thebookbubble.com/2021/02/sle...
