Reviewed on 1st June 2022

In this first 1984 Hardy Boys story, the brothers go white water rafting in Maine, with a flimsy excuse of a mystery to back up their adventure.

It really does feel like a low effort plot put together to give them a reason to take part in the activity, almost like it was product placement.

The mystery is badly put together and doesn’t make a lot of sense. One aspect that they puzzle over for half the story made no sense, and a lot of the conclusion doesn’t add up. I will say though that there was one pretty good clue that I totally missed.
