Publisher's Summary

Brother detectives Frank and Joe go full-steam ahead to find the truth in the 23rd book in the thrilling Hardy Boys Adventures series.

The Hardys and some of their friends hop aboard an old train that’s been restored and turned into a murder mystery experience. A cast of actors will perform an immersive theatrical production while passengers dine in style, assume roles in the game, and ultimately try their hand at solving the case. This should be a cakewalk for Joe and Frank!

The production is a mess. The actors are lousy, fumbling their lines and spelling out obvious clues. At least the food is pretty good. But just as the Hardy Boys are trying to make the most of a disappointing situation, one of the cast members goes missing. At first, the audience thinks that the show is taking a turn for the better, but it quickly becomes clear that this is not part of the act. For the Hardys, the mystery has gone from good fun to deadly serious. And trapped on a train full of people who aren’t who they say they are, everyone is a suspect.

Will Frank and Joe be able to figure out how someone can vanish into thin air on a moving train before this case goes completely off the rails?

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

So disappointed

As someone who adheres to traditional Christian values and marriage, I was very disappointed in this story pushing an opposing agenda. I have always enjoyed these books, and am very sad that this series has gone this way.

HORRIBLE

I’ve listened to the Hardy Boys ever since I can remember, and I have to say I am THOROUGHLY disappointed in this one!!! I’ve always thought of them as really neat, clean mysteries, but this one has ruined me on them forever! Not only is the plot of the story extremely boring and hard to get into, but they also used a man and his “husband” which is absolutely disgusting, and also a disgrace to humanity. I would not recommend the Hardy Boys for anyone!!!!!

Hardy Boys Mystery on the Mayhem is Fantastic!

My entire family really enjoyed listening to this book during our car ride during the Fourth of July! It was very enjoyable to listen to the narration. The plot is cute, easy to understand, and relevant to 2021! Clean, wholesome entertainment with a modern flair to keep the kids interested. I give this book 5 big stars!

Same sex relationships in kids book

Slowing normalizing same sex relationships in kids book. I could have been a good story without adding unnecessary same sex romantic couples.

Not an original Hardy boy!

Horrible book. I thought it was the Hardy boy original series, but it’s not! Just not the same
