Extreme Danger is the first book in The Hardy Boys: Undercover Brothers series by Franklin W. Dixon.

There is a mysterious person—known as Mr. X—who tries to sabotage the Big Air Games. The victims are top extreme athletes in the country, as well as thousands of spectators. And there may be a group of extremists working together. Or there may only be one. Frank and Joe, who work for the A.T.A.C. (American Teens Against Crime), must work out the person who is trying to sabotage this event.

Well, this was an interesting thing to read. I have some nostalgia for the Hardy Boys themselves, but as a kid I only ever read the originals. I was a bit too old when this came out and I don't think I even realized it existed. The basic concept is a bit silly - Frank and Joe have gone from amateur detectives to secret agents for a group that uses teenagers to fight crime. I can kinda accept that, since the 2000s had a bunch of stories about teen spies, and honestly the Hardys aren't facing that ...more

I ;OVELOVELOVELOVELOVE this book this was the first hardy boys book I ever finished but the first one I read was speed times 5 (also there is some similarities between this and that) this is a reboot of the franchise but never takes it to the level where old time fans wont like it so the story is that some one is sabotaging the Big Air Games and two teenager boy Joe and Frank Hardy(as Frank and Joe put it Frank is the logical Hardy and Joe is hardly logical) gets sent by the agency they work for ...more

I've been meaning to start reading this series in order for a while now, and I'm finally getting around to it. This book was read in its entirety on a day-long bus trip, and like any good book, it was a great way to pass the time.

I'm still a little confused as to how the culprit's motive was supposed to work. Not to mention a little surprised at the culprit himself. But I guess that's how it works, and it does make sense when I think about it.

Anyway, great book. I already read number two, so I'm

Frank and Joe go undercover for ATAC at an extreme games competition. Sabotage is happening and a creepy reporter keeps showing up just when someone is injured. An annoying guy who runs the best skateboard shop ends up dead. Things are getting worse until Frank and Joe finally realize who the real bad guy is.To make it more confusing, there is even another undercover ATAC agent who's also on the case, that Frank and Joe don't know about. Good mystery.

The Hardy Boys is set after the boys first mysteries, when they join the ATAC ( a secret organization created by their father ). After a near death experience, the boys receive another mission. Their mission is to go to Philadelphia,and find Mr.X who is going to sabotage the Big Air Games.

Personally I think The Hardy Boys books are fantastic. I recommend this book to anyone who loves action and mystery. Although it's not too long of a book, I still believe it's a great book

A Quickie Review

By far the most recent book featuring either the Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew that I've ever read, this take on the brotherly detective duo is a bit different than the old-school stories...but it's still exciting, and good, clean fun. Fans of the series won't be disappointed.

Score: 4/5

Recommends it for: Kids
This was a nice trip down memory lane - I loved the Hardy Boys as a kid. The plot is full of action and features an exciting setting. The characters are interesting and colorful.

This is a great read for kids - anyone older will notice the cliches and stereotypes in the text, such as the lack of depth in almost all of the side characters.

James Bond similarities made me laugh. I found that the writing style was stilted. It is rated at a grade five level; however the author tended to throw in words that are not easily understood by students reading at a grade five level.

3.5 The perspective/narration switching between the brothers was a bit confusing, but a series I think boys will enjoy.
