From the outset of this one, the boys are on the trail of Saboteurs, and asked by their father to help him. Also, they're asked by a pretty young girl, to help find her brother. As usual, we have two stories, or two subplots that merge into one plot by the end. We get small parts of Fenton Hardy's mystery, and get to follow all of the Boy's adventure.
I won't go into the ending much, as I don't want to spoil it for others. But, I will say that the ending on this one is much shorter than most Hardy Boy books.
In this adventure, the Boys and Biff and Chet go camping at the Honeycomb caves, so that Chet can use his latest hobby, a metal detector. He's searching for treasure that may have washed ashore there. At first, the Boys are going with Biff & Chet, but have to bow out when Fenton asks them to help him. But, during the course of their investigation of the missing man, they are led to the same destination as Biff & Chet. So, they all end up going to the caves together. Like I mentioned earlier, they really had to rough it at the caves. Because of that, it doesn't appeal to me as much as some others. They really rough it in their next story too! I guess it was a recurring theme perhaps, when the stories were re- written.
But, as usual, they are good role models for kids (except for an occasional fight). And, they get along extremely well for siblings, though they actually disagree once in this story!
The Boys were great fun for me, growing up. So, I'll always recommend them. Also, I listened to this one, I didn't read it. Bill Irwin did the narration, and he always does a great job. I wish they had more audio stories, with Bill narrating them.
