This book, somewhat different from the others is great. It is a great book from Franklin W. Dixon. Dixon seems to always tie in everything just perfectly. This book is bound to have the reader breathless with suspense, kind of like Franklin W. Dixon. He always seems to say something about it being the most baffling or challenging, startling, hardest or something to round each great hook. I wonder today if Franklin W. Dixon named Frank, the eighteen year-old sleuth after himself. But overall this is a pretty great book!!!

That was a great book! It was kind of odd when Reginald Jervis put the bomb in the Hardy's car. A great book with great adventure. I'm trying to collect all of the Hardy boys books.
