        July 1, 1998
        Four mysterious letters and a final empty envelope inspire Dink and his friends Josh and Ruth Rose to try their hand at code breaking. After deciphering a secret message, the trio teams up with a local police officer to foil a pair of stamp thieves. Though formulaic, the fast-paced mystery will appeal to young independent readers. Black-and-white illustrations accompany each chapter.
