Description

On the trail of an arsonist trying to ruin developer Donald Pierce, Frank and Joe Hardy go undercover as firefighters and turn the heat on three different suspects

Reviewed on 31st December 2022

For story 105 the Hardy brothers sign up to be volunteer fire-fighters, which despite this being a book from 1990 still feels like an archaic way to run your fire service.

While the plot works, the characters seem to have become a lot more willing to break a lot of laws in their investigations - this in particular is full of things which would not hold up in court as legitimate crime-fighting activity.
