The Bombay Boomerang (Hardy Boys Series #49) by Franklin W. Dixon

Frank and Joe Hardy become involved in a case affecting national security when Joe dials a wrong telephone number and gets the Pentagon. Two words— “Bombay Boomerang”— that the boys hear before the line goes dead plunge them into a whirlpool of danger and intrigue. At the same time, Frank and Joe must save their father from a murderous gang stealing mercury shipments in the Baltimore harbor. With clues linking the mercury thefts to the top secret Super S missile mysteriously stolen from a government arsenal. In a race against time, the three Hardys foil a diabolical scheme to create widespread havoc in the United States.

Released in 1970, this book ushered in a new exciting decade for the detective brothers. I like the flow of the story. Very easy to read. If you like the Hardy boys you'll like this story in which they try to outwit a group of mercury thieves. Enjoy. Look for more of my reviews on my favorite detective duo. R.C.

I liked reading this book. The language seemed to be more updated than the previous books, but you have to take in account when the books were written. I think this is the first book that Chet didn't go with Frank and Joe on their trips to help out round up the bad guys, but he was there at the beginning and the end of the story.

The most exciting moment was when Mr. Hardy was put in a mercury box. Nothing much really happened but I still liked it. I liked it when they were tracking down the Super S Missile. Just if the Hardy's had checked out more of Teddy Blaze, they would have cracked the Super S Case. All the answers lie in the last few pages. If it doesn't 'catch you' keep reading. It really isn't that suspensful until the last pages.
