I do plan to read Cult of Crime soon, so maybe that will get on my list.

I didn't really like Cult of Crime very much myself.

However, I did like Too Many Traitors, which I noticed was #48 on Tom's list, which must mean that he doesn't like it that much. So, I don't think that we can be friends anymore, Tom. ;) ;D :D

I've only read 30 or 40 casefiles so i don't think I should judge them yet. It I did Too Many Traitors and Scene of the Crime will be on the list.

I don't think Training For Trouble (#161 Digest) was suppose to be a Casefile. 

As for #11 Brother To Brother being in my top 35, I really found that the book was to short and the authors really didn't try to talk about Joe's recovery in the next one.

Yeah, it's in my top ten, but, I agree, the book needed more pages, and Joe's recovery was not dealt with well at all!

Training For Trouble was the most diget I've read . It was defently suppoed to be a casefile for these reasons (spolers comings):

Joe gets stabbed and sent to the hosptial

Someone gets shot

There are some major fist fights

The begaining was more of a casefile begaining then a degest begian for sure.

It takes me about four hours to read a Casefile but I only ever read one a day, because I like to have a bit of a gap in between books (Hardy Boys or otherwise).
