Nice list, JHR- I noticed that almost all of them are within the first 10 to 20 titles - it seems like the Casefiles series had a lot of great stand out books when the series first started- and that's not to say that later titles aren't as good- but I guess it just makes sense that a newly launched series would try to have a really strong start to get things rolling and set the pattern for things to come. And having read them all, I can also say that I enjoy them all. :D

I liked them all. The ones that stick in my mind are:

Edge of Destruction
The Genius Thieves
Beyond the Law
Rock N' Revenge

I'll post more after I dig through my set.

I think Edge of Destruction may be the first of The Hardy Boys Casefiles that I read- or maybe at least the first that I bought. I remember loving the cover as a child because Frank and Joe were climbing out of a manhole which just looked so cool to me- mainly because I immediately thought of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coming out of the sewers. :D
And this one is definitely a great book.

I remember that I special ordered Edge Of Destruction back during Boxing week 95, and it came in like New Year's Week 96 and I bought it with Christmas money (along with The Crowning Terror), and I thought that the and I thought the cover looked interesting with the boys coming out of the sewer, plus the logo was a different color from the four books. Although, I didn't find the cover that colorful.

I got the paperback version of Edge of Destruction in a box set with Casefiles: 1-5. That cover was always one of my favorites, with my other 2 favorites being Genius Thieves and Beyond the Law.

It was one of the first I read, too.

Yeah, I opened up the package and I was like, what is this???? Because I knew what the cover was supposed to look like, then I looked on the back of the book and the price was in euros LOL

It should be British pounds, since the only UK printing that I'm aware of was from 1993 (well before the Euro was introduced), but the cover does look like the US cover, but it has the UK logo from that time, and was done by a different artist.

I was just looking over this old topic, and I just remembered that years ago I had seen on the order forms, in the back of the Casefiles from around 1990-1992, that someone at S&S had, accidentally, typed into the Hardy Boys Casefiles order form Make No Mistake, which was actually a Nancy Drew Files title, and it appeared in number of Casefiles (I think it replaced #43Strategic Moves, but I'm not too sure, and the few Casefiles that I did check (#59-66) didn't have the error).
