Hunting for Hidden Gold

Timber wolves, a Rocky Mountain blizzard, and mine cave-in are only a few of the perils Frank and Joe Hardy encounter during their search for the principal members of a notorious gang responsible for a payroll robbery. In the old Montana mining camp of Lucky Lode, the young detectives puzzle over a series of mysterious events. A piano-playing ghost haunts the long-abandoned dance hall. Eerie blue lights flash from the hilltop cemetery in the dark of night. Strange men arrange a meeting at Shadow the Bear. A suspect disappears through a curtain of frozen ice. How are these events related to the wome who kidnapped the boys in Chicago? Who booby-trapped the helicopter which flew the young detectives to the ghost town? And what ever happened to Bart Dawson who seemingly deserted his gold-mining partners twenty-five years ago? Clue by clue, Frank and Joe cleverly fit into place the scattered pieces of this dangerous puzzle and come up with the astonishing solution.

They get caught up in the ist of Big Al and his gang who want the Hardy boys and their father out of the pat of their plans.

Joe and Frank 's case about finding missing gold end up connecting a lot with their mother 's case on trying to catch the gang.One of my avorite characters was Dawson, or really Dodge.

Moreover, what I did n't like about memoir is the reason that the Hardy boys are really smart enough to not go into a mine without others with them and without anyone knowing where they are.

ell, actually they knew better in regards to both of these unwise choices, talking about the fear and doing both anyway.
