Description

Found dazed and incoherent in the woods, Mr. Hardy's assistant is then kidnapped from the hospital, and the Hardy boys pick up the trail of a vicious gang.

Reviewed on 7th August 2021

I’m slightly disappointed about the lack of an actual dragon in this sixty-ninth Hardy Boys mystery, which instead sees the brothers investigating… actually I’m not entirely sure what?

This novel feels like a vehicle for setting more than plot, as the author has created a clone of the Winchester Mystery House, and seemingly designed their plot around getting the brothers there.

There’s a lot of dressing around it, but it doesn’t feel much like it adds up to a properly cohesive plot.
