It was terrible, kind of. I hoped it would be good since it was the last one. But hey R.C, the Hardy Boys Series is not over, there is 59-66. 59 is The Night of the Werewolf. I wish Dixon could have left off on a positive note, but it didn't have a good plot at all and there were way too many buisness meetings. Nothing really happened. I was waiting for something to happen and nothing did. There was big gaps in between exciting things. The only thing that basically caught the readers attention from my point of view except when the Hardy Boys nearly got stung by a full-grown scorpion. We even thought about quitting the book but we didn't. I was kind of a awful book.

Released in 1979, 'The Sting Of The Scorpion' marked the end of original Hardy Boy mysteries in hard back. As always this tale is full of fast-paced action as the brothers work to foil a gang of terrorists. One of the best stories in the original series, it was almost saddening to read knowing it was the last. Highly recommended! R.C.
