Description

The Hardy boys travel to Mexico to solve the mystery of a missing plane and its passengers. Their only clues are giant desert drawings made by Native Americans hundreds of years ago.

Reviewed on 19th December 2020

The fortieth book in my epic re-read / completionist read-through of the original Hardy Boys series sees the two brothers and their ever-present friend Chet set off south on a mission to find two missing men.

This is one that I’ve read before, but other than knowing what the giant of the title was going to be, I have no really memories of the plot.

It’s a pretty standard story for the series. There’s a brief bit of racism but much less than in some of the earlier novels. Possibly a more noticeable lack of female characters.
