Wow. I never would have guessed that person was behind some of the incidents. Talk about surprising. I'm still a little suspicious of one individual in particular, but I'll have to wait and see if I'm right.

Huh, it figures that when Frank starts falling for a girl, Joe would get all jealous about it. The resulting tension really entertained me for much of the book. Even though it seems like a weird thing to be entertained by, like they said at one point in the book: Frank and Joe almost never ar

The covers change but the writing never does: it's as awful as ever. This book is in the new Murder House Trilogy. The cover is hilarious, Joe and Frank are dressed like preppy gangstas. The books are so awful they are hysterical. Example: "what's your damage, dudes...you could sum up the dude in two words Ob Noxious."

And they belong to this neat organization called ATAC American Teens Against Crime, and their life has been a "total rush" ever since.

Honestly, I feel sorry for the poor SOB who ha

In 'House Arrest', book two in the murder house trilogy, Frank and Joe remain undercover at the luxury Beverly Hills mansion with a bunch of teens who are all competing in a reality tv show. Once again the Hardy Boys have to face down a rattle snake! I don't know what it is about Frank and Joe, but they sure encounter the slithery reptile quite often in their mysteries. The perp deserved to get caught this time. But, all still doesn't seem well on the reality tv show, so there has to be a book 3 ...more

House Arrest is the 2nd book in the Murder House trilogy. The story is told from the points of view of Joe and Frank Hardy. Like the other Hardy Boys mysteries ,this one was thrilling and shocking. It contains an unexpected plot twist that left me shocked.

House Arrest was very good. The main characters were Frank and Joe. The problem is that Joe is bitten by a snake. They fix it by finding the person who put it there. I learned that there are competitions in TV shows.

that book was nice... but it was more about the relationship and less about the mystery
