The Blackwing Puzzle
Reviewed on 2nd June 2022
Finally a Bayport-based mystery again, and that allows us to see the whole of the Hardy Boys gang, including the random decision in this novel to relabel their aunt as “Gertie”.
It’s 1984, and the fascinations of the era continue to dominate - technology and ghosts in this case.
It’s a fairly solid mystery, but there’s almost too much going on, with at my count five different strands which don’t entirely flow together.
