This is my personal favorite mystery of the original series (58). Released in 1973, this case takes the Hardy brothers to Greece in search of a helmet used in an old film. Of course it's filled with classic Hardy Boys action and I'm sure you'll love every page. Highly recommended reading! R.S.C.
It was awsome. Great book!
It wasn't that great. The only surprising think was that Spiro Vanides was a bad guy all along. An okay book, so don't buy it over Danger on Vampire Trail or The Disappearing Floor.
