I checked this out of the library because it was Nancy Drew/ HArdy boys supermystery. I really enjoyed it- especially with the chemistry that Frank and Nancy share (even though they each have a significant other in their own towns). It is obvious that Nancy, Frank and Joe work very well together. This also had George Fayne and Bess Marvin. I really enjoyed this book because Nancy was able to find the bad guys just in time (as usual).

Read this back in grade school during the 90s. I remember loving this series so much! Such a shame it's so hard to find these nowadays. I have a mind to collect the titles that look interesting based on the synopsis.

Most of the Nancy Drew & Hardy Boys Super Mysteries are fun nostalgia trips for me, this one wasn't. The plot was pretty weak and the dialog was weaker. Add in a strong helping of racist stereotypes and you've got a book that I won't be recommending anytime soon.

This is probably closer to three stars, but I'm giving it for because I used to love it when I was a kid.
