Deadfall
The Hardy Boys Casefiles #60
Printed: February 1992
Published by: Archway Paperbacks

Plot:

When the Hardy?s go to Crosscut, Oregon with Frank?s girlfriend, Callie Shaw, to visit her uncle, Stan Shaw, they don?t realize that they will be getting into the middle of a brush fire.  There are two rival lumber mills in Crosscut and both are fierce rivals to each other.  But there are also pro- and anti-logging forces in operation and the tension in the town is extremely high.

But when an explosion at one of the mills claims the life of that mills owner, the Hardys realize that there is more at stake.  But then the police charge Callie?s uncle, who is a known environmentalist in the area, with the murder of the mill owner.  But in order to clear Stan Shaw?s name the Hardys will have to race through a number of dynamite explosions, chainsaws and loggers with double-barrel shotguns.
 

Review:

Boy, was this ever a slow and boring novel.  Where was the action?  The adventure?  There was none!  I don?t even know what to write about the book. 

Best advice, avoid this book, although this book is better than a lot of the recent ?Undercover Brothers? books.  At least with ?Deadfall? I was able to make it all the way through the book to the end.

Rating:

1.25 out of 10

Don't forget, I'm saving a lot of reviews for my site, so you will see quite a few 3-7 reviews.
