Format: Hardcover
This book was interesting because it was exciting about the pigeons, the way the criminals were catched, the bombing of the Hardy home, and the falcon. I'd like to have one of those. This book may be four stars, but it can still be considered one of the top ten, and is definitely one that all fans can not miss.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Lonnie E. Holder HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 7, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Frank and Joe Hardy receive a peregrine falcon from Mr. Rahmud Ghapur, along with a variety of falconry equipment. However, the boys are not sure why Mr. Ghapur sent the falcon to them. Soon Mr. Ghapur and Mr. Bhagnav, both from India, visit the Hardys and explain that they were representing Satish Nayyar. Mr. Nayyar's son, Tava, was traveling to the United States to complete his education. However, Tava disappeared. Shortly after his disappearance a ransom demand for rubies was received. Frank and Joe advise their visitors that the peregrine falcon had already brought down a pigeon carrying rubies. Their astounded visitors consider that the rubies might be part of the ransom payment.

Several attempts are made to slow the Hardys in their investigation. Someone attempts to steal the falcon. The boathouse where their boat, the Sleuth, is kept is burned. Their house is bombed. Clearly the kidnappers are ruthless. Frank and Joe slowly work their way through the clues, coming close and closer to the base of the kidnappers and hopefully the location of Tava Nayyar. As the mystery nears the end, upstanding citizens turn out to be criminals, and the discovery of Tava yields even more surprises.

I was somewhat disappointed in the previous book in this series, "The Yellow Feather Mystery," and hoped that this book would be an improvement. Fortunately, this book was much more interesting than the previous book. I enjoyed the chapters involving the falcon, which appeared to me to be generally factual. I also enjoyed the use of the falcon to bring down pigeons smuggling rubies. While the mystery was plotted in a straightforward way from the beginning to the end, I found the mystery sufficiently intriguing that I zipped through this book quickly.

"The Hooded Hawk Mystery" is a normal Hardy Boys book. In the beginning the Hardys recieve a hawk to hunt pigeons. Then they get a new case to catch kidnappers and some smugglers smuggling aliens into the U.S.. Do the hawk,kidnappers,and smugglers tie together somehow?

This is a wonderful mystery for kids! It goes at a quick pace and is exciting from the very first page. It also teaches the reader a little bit about falconry.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on February 2, 2002
Format: Hardcover
This review concerns the original 1954 edition as well as the revised 1971 edition, which is a shortened version of the original. A friend of Mr. Hardy gives Frank and Joe a falcon so that they can help their father with his case concerning the smuggling of Indians into the U.S., also Frank and Joe search for a kidnapped Indian prince. This book was alright, the first half of it has some slow moments; however, the last 7 chapters were rather good. The book has a moderate amount of action and while the plot isn't totally original, it isn't bad and alot of kids would probably find the parts concerning the falcon interesting. One thing that I did like about the book was that many of the other characters of the series (Mr. Hardy, Chet, Tony, Sam Radley) were used often. It's not one of the best books, but it is worth reading.
