Have to read another one in the future to see if my impression changes but, right now,I can say I liked it. I know it is geared towards teens and up but found it a littl on the basic end of things as far as plot goes. It was predictable and I like a book I can really get into. One that makes me think.
This book thought me an important lesson. I learned that it's a realy bad idea to try and cheat the govenment. It only ends up badly for you if you get caught.

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 the Hardy Boys books (and Nancy Drew) when I was a child. The stories are old fashioned, but that's why I like them so much.
The latest Hardy Boy adventure. Just started reading it to my sons - it involves a pirate ghost, which they love.

So, one of my favorite bands parodies this book cover for one of their album covers, which just makes me happy.
Excellent series for young readers - highly recommended.
I read these books when I was 10 - 15 years of age.

My book has the same cover as shown in this listing but was published in 1994.
Insurance fraud. I never realized how these books ran the gamut of topics.
Didn't even THINK about finishing reading it. It's HARDY BOYS. I mean come ON.
Pretty fun story, interesting plot, but of course the are to perfect.
