Hardy Boys: The Wailing Siren Mystery. By Franklin W. Dixon,the book is about two brothers Joe Hardy and Frank Hardy have to find out where a load of rifles were loaded on to a wailing ship that got away because the Harry's mother boat ran out of gas. Throughout the entire book the author explanes how the hardy boys try to figure out the wailing siren mystery.

This was definitely one of the weaker Hardy Boys mysteries. Fenton Hardy keeps information away from the police, but then later tells them when the counterfeiters are meant to show up. Coincidences abound as the Hardys go camping and come across the same gang who dropped a wallet full of counterfeit money from their helicopter. 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.
Excellent series for young readers - highly recommended.
I read these books when I was 10 - 15 years of age.

Ah, the sleuth. Perhaps a less conspicuous name would've got them in less trouble.
Another fun Hardy Boys. I didn't enjoy this one as much as some of the others.

This review is of the original 25 chapter book.
