    3.5 stars Mystery of the Haunted Mine turned out to be a bit unusual for its time and genre I was expecting it to be closer in tone and writing to the Nancy Drew mysteries, but it was really quite a bit darker and realistic, in everything from the dialogue to the mostly happy ending The cover art which shows the character Sue nervously holding onto the hero, Gary is rather misleading, as in the story itself Sue is every bit as brave as Gary and Tuck, and simply steps right over the skeleton she is so scared of in the cove...
