Time Bomb is pretty good, from what I've read of it so far.

Yeah, its not bad.
Don't worry, I have a plan.
-Frank
Right. Every time you say that, I usually do something stupid, like jump in a septic tank.
-Joe

(Thanks to Lola) I read ''Time Bomb'' yesterday. It was very good. I loved the beginning where Frank and Joe were going after the Swifts and I really like the gun fight in 1932. Not to mention the climax, although I thought it would have been more powerful from Joe's point of view, when Frank and Fenton died. This was really a fight that couldn't be won by the good guys...yet they did, so it made it really exciting.

I'd have liked to see some things different though. A) more pages and B) 1927 rather then 1932.

So do you agree that it is an epilogue to Operation: Phoenix?

Well, not really, but I would say it's a nice tie-in with that OP. I noticed ''Time Bomb'', also mentions Casefiles #5 Edge of Destruction.

I found it interesting that only the Tom Swift series is listed at the beginning, and there's a summary for the next Tom Swift at the back and only mentioned the Casefiles on back flap, even though the book was a crossover between those two series.

Yeah, a lot of us have found it weird how S&S didn't put in a plug for Casefiles #67 Lethal Cargo.

I've read Alien Factor, and altough I saving the review for my site, I've read better Casefiles. I did think it was a good book, but I wouldn't call it one of "One of the Top Hardy Boys Books to date".
