Hardy Boys Adventures #9 Curse of the Ancient Emerald and #10 Tunnel of Secrets
This is a very good mystery. There is more than one suspect, and it's not apparent who is guilty. Frank and Joe suspect several different people at various points in the story. I couldn't decide for sure who was guilty. The book even has a few twists.
This is an excellent book, and I greatly enjoyed it.
In Hardy Boys Adventures #10, Tunnel of Secrets, a sinkhole opens up in the center of Bayport, swallowing up an large statue of Admiral James T. Bryant, one of the founders of Bayport. Frank and Joe learn of a hidden treasure, and their search takes them into the tunnels underneath Bayport, where they make an astonishing discovery.
Parts of this book read like a young adult dystopian novel.
This is an excellent story. It has the same tone as the first four books in the series. I like the undercurrent of tension that runs through those books and this one, like evil is lurking somewhere near and could strike at any time.
