Title: Hardy Boys Adventures #17 - Gray Hunter’s Revenge

What an intriguing title! I can only presume 'Gray Hunter' is someone's name ...

Thanks for the heads-up on this. Intriguing indeed.

It’s to bad that there wasn’t an earlier book, since the title almost sounds like a sequel title.

The title is obviously a reference to Aunt Gertrude, refusing to admit she's aging, even when the gray hairs keep popping up through her latest dye job. Frank and Joe have teased her about it one too many times...and find themselves victim to the classic Nair in the shampoo gag. Can the now bald young detectives solve the mystery of which diabolical enemy came up with this harebrained scheme against them? Talk about a close shave!

April 1st seems awfully soon for another Adventure book considering the one before it comes out February 20th?  Might we see more than just two books next year?

I suspect the release date is a typo. The release date for 'Famous Mistakes" (Nancy Drew Diaries #17) is  August 28, 2018, and it's possible that whoever made the amazon listing for "Grey Hunter's Revenge" made a typo and wrote April instead of August. Normally there's about a month in between the release of a Diaries and a Adventures book. For example:

The Sign in the Smoke: May 10, 2016
The Madman of Black Bear Mountain: June 7, 2016

The Professor and the Puzzle: August 8, 2017
A Con Artist in Paris: September 5, 2017

The Haunting on Heliotrope Lane: January 2, 2018
Stolen Identity: February 20, 2018

Up here in Canada Chapters is reporting April 1, 2018 for the book as well, and there are two dates for the Oasis Audio Version: April 1 & 8.

Interesting.... Of course, April 1st. is an incredibly appropriate date for someone to get fooled by a typo. ;D
