The sixth book in the Hardy Boys series, in my case the revised edition from 1964, sees the Hardys investigating a spate of car thefts from along the Shore Road in their hometown. It's the first time I've felt that the pair have really tackled a crime in a methodical manner suited to real detectives.
The plot moves at a good pace, carries humorous moments successfully, and as a mystery works really well. Probably one of the best stories up to this point in the series.
