Die drei ???

Die drei ??? are the young detectives Justus Jonas, Peter Shaw and Bob Andrews. The somewhat chubby Justus is the leader and the brains of Die drei ???. Peter is the greatest athlete among them, but at the same time the biggest coward. Bob is responsible for research and archives in the trio. The boys live in the fictional Californian coastal town of Rocky Beach near L.A.. An old trailer, the headquarters, serves as their office. The starting signal for “Die drei ???” in Germany came in 1968 with the publication of the first book. Since 1979, the adventures have also been published in the form of radio plays. Since then, the series has been celebrated like no other and has thrilled generations.
