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

The Hardy Boys is a mystery series. And mystery series must have a plot twist or two. That is necessary. But in this book, the excessive number of character and plot twists completely detracted from the story.

And why counterfeiters would deliver the money in a wallet in the first place is anybody’s guess, as that scenario is never addressed!

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.

These are not great books but they remind me of a great childhood I had. The Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, Chip Hilton and the underrated Ken Holt mystery series all bring back wonderful memories.
