Hardy Boys #182 Soldier's Gold, #183 Warehouse Rumble, and #184 Dangerous Transmission
Frank and Joe's task is laughable. There is no way they could dig up buried gold in Portugal and smuggle it back to the United States without getting into trouble. Of course it turns out that getting the gold is much more difficult than the boys expect, and others are after the gold as well. As the plot develops, the story becomes more logical and easier for the reader to accept.
This is a very good story.
The story is not that interesting. It reads like a sports sabotage book. They have a competition, and something goes wrong. They have another competition, and something else goes wrong. It's not apparent why this is happening for most of the story.
The story is not compelling, and I was more bored the further I read. I skimmed the last part of the book.
I did not enjoy this book.
I was turned off as soon as I began the book. I was reminded of Biff Brewster, British Spy Ring Mystery, and Brad Forrest, London Adventure. I do not like either of those books, so I was not inclined to like this one.
The author wrote a spooky scene in the fog of London, and that is my favorite part of the story.
I did not like this book.
