Yet another fun addition to the Hardy Boys mystery book series.
The story had some exciting plot twists, nothing too major or over the top, but things that kept it interesting. The author used some impressive foreshadowing that you wouldn't have expected, and things you learned about at the start of the book came back towards the end in a totally different fashion.

This was much more on an entertaining read than I was planning, there was alot going on, but never too much to comprehend at once. It wasn't as easy of a read as I would've thought, there were some
Abby says: This book was very adventurous, interesting and exciting. The crooked arrow was one of my favourite Hardy Boys books so far!
I purchased The Sign of the Crooked Arrow without realizing that it was a part of the Hardy Boys series. (No, guys, it did not say 'THE HARDY BOYS' on the front cover - my copy has a different cover. [:) I was a little disappointed when I discovered the fact, but decided that I would buckle down and read it instead. I was surprised by how pleasant it actually was.

The Story.

A car has been left at Slo Mo’s garage for two months. No one has called to claim it. But someone has tried to steal it. A t
It's probably been close to 50 years since I read this, so I can't recall any details or give a pertinent review. However, I CAN say this much: if not for the Hardy Boys series by the esteemed Franklin W. Dixon, I might not be an avid reader today. The life-threatening dilemmas in which Frank and Joe always managed to find themselves, and which they always survived AND got the bad guys arrested, were absolutely captivating to my young imagination. While reading these stories, I WAS the Hardy Boy ...more

This was a classic hardy boys mystery. It had a great ending that anyone would love. When frank and Joe get a tip that there cousin, Ruth Hardy has been having some trouble on her ranch in Arizona the boys grab their good friend Chet and hurry out to her ranch to see what is going on.

The classic boy detectives by Frank Dixon--I read ALL of them in my younger years, one I ran out of Nancy Drew books. The Hardy Boys are brother amateur detectives, aspiring to follow in their famous father's footsteps.
The two boys live in the fictional city of Bayport (on Barmet Bay) with their famous father, Fenton Hardy, a private detective formerly with the New York Police Department, their mother Laura Hardy (erroneously called Mildred in The Flying Express), and their Aunt Gertrude, a char
great mystery.. I couldn't put it down

I wasn't even going to bother to give this stars since I dislike these books, but Zack wanted me to read it to him. I was enthralled with Nancy Drew at his age, but it's all so trite now.

I think the Hardy Boy books helped me with learning deductive and inductive skills. I had to work through logic. Who knew? I enjoyed all these books.
I read these books as well as the Nancy Drew mysteries as a child, so it is always fun for a visit with "old friends"...
Excellent series for young readers - highly recommended.
I read these books when I was 10 - 15 years of age.
Jim Sampson
Another enjoyable read in this hardy boys series. Action packed and full of intrigue.
The book was okay,but I wish they were longer and have a more difficult mystery to solve.
Benjamin Plume
A Western and a Mystery rolled into one with the Hardy Boys. Wonderful!
Valkyrie Oracle
My book has the same cover as shown in this listing but was published in 1976.
