Operation Titanic by Carolyn Keene
This book is a combination Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys book. In this installment, the Titanic is going to be raised and there is a big media hoopla over that. Nancy is at the gala and is trying to catch a thief. In a parallel story, Frank and Joe Hardy are helping the government find some lost nuclear missiles. Of course, the trio cross path and join forces to catch all of the bad guys. This book was a quick read and it was sort of fun to get back to some detectives that I read a lot about when I was younger.
This book is about Nancy Drew, a detective who shares a lot of her stories with her best friend Bess Marvin. Two of the other main characters are Frank and Joe Hardy, who follow their Dad's footprints. They too are detectives, and their father is a detective who is known about nation wide. These young detectives help find the thieves that are planning to attack the Hampton. The Hampton is a cruise ship bound to raise the Titanic from her watery grave. This book sure has a lot of surprises.
In the beginning Nancy Drew is invited by the ever so handsome billionaire, Walter Welsh, to see the Titanic be raised. She accepts the invitation and Bess Marvin tags along. On the boat she spots some thieves that caused a murder back in Chicago, and has an exciting time trying to track them down. When the ship gets attacked she leads the way to the scene of the crime.
All the while Frank and Joe are trying to enjoy a nice vacation until their car gets run off the road by a van. Finally Frank and Joe escape but find other strange happenings at their stay at Wedge Grove Oceanography. During these strange happenings Frank and Joe are hired to work for the Network, a government security team. Their job is to ride in a helicopter to the site of the Titanic and board the Hampton, who is owned by Walter Welsh. Frank and Joe are to pose as journalist and try to find a man who they think is aboard the ship and is very dangerous.
On the ship Nancy, Bess, and the Hardy boys get together and exchange stories. They soon find the needed information to stop the Hampton from going under. They even get to enjoy dinner and a dance on board one of the nicest cruise ships in America.
I truly enjoyed this book and would rate it a nine on a one to ten scale. So if you like suspense and thrill this would be a great book to read!
The plot of this book is really great, but the book iself is VERY sloppily written. Characters Nancy works with at the beginning vanish into thin air without a trace, and most of the book is incomprehensible. There is really no real detecting done in this book at all; no clues are found until the very end and even those just appear, it is not told where they come from. There are also a few false facts floating around the book. Ex.Joe seems to lose his head when near Bess. Nancy also appears to have to have an admirer, the thirtyish billionaire who is raising the Titanic. Nancy, in this book, is rather cold and, um, mean. I also agree with other readers, the Hardys showed up way too late.
Although I expected more from this book, it was enjoyable to read. There is a very funny scene between Frank and Joe on page 154-157. For the Nancy & Frank fans, there is really not much material except on 173 & 215.
