Spies, Lies and Serious Bad Guys!


Ages 9 and up. Great for girls and boys.

Spies, Lies and Serious Bad Guys is a mad-cap mystery that unfolds through a series of personalized letters, top secret missions, curious objects and cool spy gadgets. There are ciphers to crack, codes to enter, clues to solve, and an evil villain to foil. The adventure begins with an acceptance letter to spy school, but training is interrupted when a secret agent goes missing. If the villain’s plans succeed, fun will be gone forever. Seriously. No more fun. Forever! Mwah ha ha ha ha!

Mail Order Mysteries are not for children under three. Small parts could present a choking hazard.

Fantastic Christmas Gift

I gave this to my 11 year old grandson for Christmas. It was his favorite thing by far. He worked on that every day and was intrigued by learning how to decipher codes and figure out the clues. It was a gift that made him work very hard and he didn’t know he was doing that because it is set up so well.
Excellent gift. I will buy him another one. Well Done!!! It was a Hit……….. He finished his in less than a week but he was working on it throughout the day.

This gift was a Home Run!

This gift was amazing... the 9 year old recipient was extremely excited and interested in it. She worked the whole mystery in 10 days instead of the 6 weeks ... I would have liked it to last longer, but she had the time over Christmas vacation and she thoroughly enjoyed it. When she shared her excitement at the end, I could see her eyes sparkling. She texted me that "she realized this was the most fun thing ever". I will definitely consider ordering another mystery in the future. She is a 9 year old 4th grader with great reading and thinking skills.

Brilliant Idea | I'm the gift god now

Sent these to my nieces and they LOVED them. The 3 of them and their parents would anxiously await for the next to arrive and had a great family night doing them together.

Grandson LOVED his mystery

This mystery was enthralling! My grandson (age 12) anticipated his weekly mailing, enlisted his friends, was engrossed in his mystery. If you are wondering if this is worth you money, let me tell you, it IS. Do not hesitate to buy this, and I recommend you pace it out over the weeks to let your "detective" have time to work out his clues, and wait for his next assignment. This was the BEST gift he received this Christmas!
