What mystery needs a mirror to solve?

Need help remembering the title of a line of young adult books from the 80s involving mysteries and requiring a mirror to solve.

I hate this kind of "help me remember this book/song/tv show/whatever from the 70s/80s/90s" question. I really do. But I don't have anywhere else to look.

I'm looking for the name of a line of kids' books from the 80s that were sort of like Encyclopedia Brown, but the solutions were at the end were reversed so that you had to hold the book up to a mirror to see what happened.

This was spurred by, of all things, a Facebook posting about hearsay.

There's a series of mystery puzzle/book sets that included a solution in mirror-type.

Best answer: Also, look into the "Hawkeye Collins and Amy Adams" series. There's no good link that shows all of them, but it looks like each book had a few short mysteries in each, again with the mirrored solution.

Response by poster: Hawkeye Collins it is.
