In his Line of Fire Review for Comics Bulletin, Ray Tate thought there was some "nice twists on the traditional characters of Baskerville Hall and a plausible motive for the culprit."

He commended the efforts of artists Joe Staton and Dave Hunt with Paul Becton in offering the reader "excellent perspective shots and differing camera angles." He went on further to say that the "subtlety of expression suits Mr. [Dan] Abnett's sparkling characterization" with Daphne's look of concentration as she pieces together a puzzle or the hilarious disgust on Scoob's face when he and we find a food he will not touch.[1]
