It was very suspenseful like all the other Hardy Boys books I've read so far. Joe and Frank Hardy's father,Fenton Hardy the famous detective,is on a case in Lucky Lode looking for a man called Big Al who he suspected was in the area. Fenton's guess was right. Big Al was in the neighborhood and he was going after him after his sons.
