Three-Ring Terrorby Franklin W. Dixon
The Hardy boys never dreamed they'd be swinging for their lives on the circus's flying trapeze, but that's exactly what happens when their pal Chet Morton discovers a college for clowns. But Frank and Joe have no time for clowning around, for they've intercepted a coded message that may turn the greatest show on earth into a carnival of crime.

This is part of a book report I gave in front of my class: I really like this book, although it was a little odd with the mystery involving the circus. The story starts with Joe and Frank Hardy learning about their friend Chet taking a class about clowning in the circus. After a performance, Chet is helping serve drinks. When hiw shift was over, he went to get his bag and leave, but he found another person rifling through his bag! The Hardy Boys chased the man who was doing that, but the guy got away. From there on in the stroy, there are many strange trists and obstacles in the way of solving the mystery. They learn about sabotage that has been happening for a while in the Montero Brothers Circus. Once you read the story you will learn that there is something more valuable than the circus that they are after, but that's for you to find out. I strongly recommend buying this book.
