Enjoyable Hardy Boys sleuthing around Bayport

Not the strongest entry in the "canon," but an enjoyable mystery set along the ocean around Bayport. Two of Frank and Joe's best buds go missing and the Hardy Boys try to locate them while finding linkages with a bank heist crime that their father is trying to solve. Entertaining sleuthing goes on and even if it's not the most exciting or exotic of the series, it is still very entertaining and relaxing to listen to, especially if you, like I, grew up reading every volume in the series. Bill Irwin does an excellent job reading and speaking as each of the characters, and there are just enough sound effects and a soundtrack to add some atmosphere.

Nostalgia

I read most of the Hardy Boys books when I was a boy - but not this one.
I felt like a was a kid again! Very well done.

This Was My Favorite

Times may change but Frank and Joe remain the same. I listened with my son and he liked it too, but still went back to "wimpy kid" stories.

One of the Better "Hardys"


Okay - they're all pretty formulaic - but this one is a little less predictable than most. And the supporting cast gets to shine a little more than they usually do.
