Just finished rereading this book today! I really love this one- it's just a fun mystery with the spookiness of Halloween as a backdrop. There are tons of references to classic horror and suspense and mystery (twinged with the supernatural) movies and shows. The clues themselves were fun to figure out for the contest too. All the unmaskings made me think of a Scooby-Doo mystery,  which is awesome to me because I love Scooby! :) 8) The mystery itself even seemed kinda typical of one the Scooby-Doo gang might solve. I also noticed WBPT was mentioned in this book. Callie was also largely involved in helping solve the mystery, which was reminiscent of the early Casefiles books. Great, fun read overall. :) 8)
