This threw away RARE chance to kidnap, bind, gag Callie Shaw---FINALLY!
...
When attempt made to abduct Frank off street in front of Callie, it should HAVE SUCCEEDED, Callie ALSO TAKEN so not (as
she did) raise alarm. Frank manages to untie himself, then Callie, they escape. Story could have used such drama, excitement, otherwise slow-moving as the ice cap set on later. What were you thinking in this case--- or, as frustratingly always, NOT!--- "Franklin W. Dixon"?
...
And Frank and Joe got tied up AGAIN, Biff got tied up and gagged AGAIN, Eskimo boy tied up. (Took to Casefiles #1 Dead on Target, 1987, regular #112 Demolition mission, 1992, FINALLY for Callie.)
