Abby says: I love the non-stop adventure. My favourite part was how the bad guys left embers. I'm started to get tired of Chet complaining that he doesn't want to be involved in the mysteries with the Hardy Boys.

Franklin W. Dixon's The Clue in the Embers
by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE - April 7, 2012

In the past yr, my friend, the poet & essayist Alan Davies, conducted an email interview w/ me in wch he wrote: "I would be interested in knowing which books first struck you / as a boy / which authors – and the reading of what things might have pointed (pushed?) you in the direction of writing and the other arts." This unleashed a flood of memories about childhood reading wch led to my thinkin

This cover is straight up bizarre. The book was a little weird too but in a good way, it was still pretty fun.

In which Latinos can't speak Spanish ("Juan's El Taxi"), "Indians" can't speak at all ("Hokay!"), and if you feature a shrunken head on the cover your book better make use of a goddamn shrunken head!

This book is basically about two brothers, Frank and Joe, who are sons of an internationally famous detective, and they plan on becoming detectives themselves. They already do track down some criminals. This book was basically about Frank and Joe's friend, Tony, receiving a lot of stuff from his uncle's old shop, and there are some thieves who are threatening and doing all sorts of other things to try and get some of the items from Tony's new collection.
I rated this book 4/5 stars, as I really e

This book is pretty creepy if you ask me. What happens is a relative of Tony dies and leaves him his weird shop plus shrunken heads. Also the shop is important when it comes to solving a crime. Be careful no matter what and first impressions can fool a person (you'll have to read it to know what I mean).

Frank and Joe Hardy and their chums never fail to provide an entertaining and mysterious escapade. These teenagers are very intelligent, resourceful, and mature for their ages.

My grandsons and I enjoyed sharing them together and would recommend them to others. We enjoyed this one very much.

Each book is a clean read and can stand on its own.

I read these books (and Nancy Drew) too many years ago to state, but while clearing out my daughters bedroom I am re-reading some books before recycling.
Good fun romp but I'm not sure they would suit a modern teen.

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.

It was exciting. They go to Guatemala and any story that involves volcanoes is always exciting. This is a good one for young people but I don't think it holds up over time.

This one was OK enough until they travel down to Guatemala and start interacting with the natives. Boy, did that get my blood to boiling.

I had fun reading this to Bowman and Tenney. They LOVE The Hardy boys, and because They Hardy boys had apple pie so did Bowmand and Tenney and I :)

One of the better Hardy Boys tales, though as usual the coincidences get a little more unlikely as the story progresses.

this book is a good mystery book but it is not the best. i like the action to it and the mystery behind it it's not some kind of mystery that a first grader could figure out.
