An arrow had already been fitted to the string, and was now aimed directly at the boys. The Great Airport Mystery is about the Hardy boys, two young detectives. When they are called on a case, they have to work at Stanwide to see who is stealing the expensive platinum electronic parts from shipments. They find this hideout where they find the platinum parts and arrest two of the gang members. The gang becomes desperate to get rid of them. So they send someone to throw a hand-grenade at the Hardys. When they thought about a place not in Mexico, Canada, or the U.S. where the gang¿s hideout might be, it leads them to and uninhabited island where they run into a violent storm and a piece of paper indicating the gang has their hideout in Montana. When they find the hideout they arrest their former boss (Art Rodax), the chief pilot (Lance Peterson), Aaron Lieber, and two other people. Lance Peterson was only the chief pilot because Clint Hill, the original chief pilot was in a plane crash and Lance decided to abandon Clint so he could be the chief pilot. But what nobody knew was that Clint Hill survived the crash, traveled back to the United States, and was haunting Lance Peterson. When Lance is arrested for stealing the platinum parts and attempting murder, Clint Hill reveals himself. I recommend this book strongly to anyone who likes to read good books. This book has a lot of action. Someone throws a hand-grenade at the Hardy¿s, they get threatened with a shot gun, their friend gets temporarily blinded, Frank gets beat up by a masked attacker, they track down a ¿ghost¿, and they fall into a trap door where gas knocks them unconscious. A long time ago the chief pilot crashed in the sea by an uninhabited island and as far as any one knew only the next best to the chief pilot survived but really the chief pilot survived also, so he started to haunt Lance Peterson, the new chief pilot, to make Lance go crazy. But when Lance is arrested Clint Hill, the former chief pilot, showed himself. This book has tons of suspense. When they travel to the uninhabited island it seems as if the next scene will be the gang being arrested, but then they almost get stuck on the island in a violent storm. Also when they find all the stolen platinum parts, two gang members suddenly come in and hold them hostage until the police come and arrest the two gang members, Bush Barney and Anchor. This book has many interesting characters. Art Rodax is described as a mean, stern faced man that likes to boss the Hardy¿s around. Clint Hill is described as a bearded young man who likes to whistle High Journey and haunted Lance Peterson because Lance abandoned him when they made it out from in the plane. This book has action, suspense, interesting characters, and breathtaking scenes all put together. The best part was when an airplane¿s wheel rolled right on the Hardy¿s car with the Hardys in it! I strongly recommend this book because it is one of the best books I¿ve read.

Back in Sept. or Oct. of this year, one of my friends told me that the Great Airport Mystery was a really good book, so I decided to try it. Once I read the first page, I couldn't put the book down. If you read it, you will find that the Hardys face many dangerous enemies (including, almost getting run over by a pane) and also get 'haunted: by a 'ghost'.

This is a great book. I have read, the book finding lost gold or whatever it is called and the hooded hawk mystery, and what happend at midnight, and footprints under the window. All great books, so i was excited to read this one. Even though i am only in chapter 3, it is on of the best books. VERY entertaining. I reccomend this to all ages 5+. If you have read this book and loved it, hit yes.

Youngsters from second grade to sixth will enjoy each and every Hardy Boy book because of the story line, the dialogue, and the tension created by each chapter until the exciting end.
