The Missing Chums - Franklin W. Dixon This is when the Hardy Boys series started to jump the shark. How much money does the Hardy family have? They own multiple motorcycles, at least two cars, a boat, all manner of bicycles and a Geiger counter. They have a private charter pilot (Jack Wayne) to fly them around at will. They have a crime lab in their garage. Fenton Hardy is world-renowned. The Hardy Boys are also brilliant students, star football players, and the two most attractive kids in high school. They get knocked out with a brick every other week, and yet they still suffer no long-term effects. They seemingly eat more every day then I do in a week. They manage to round up a gang of criminals every month, most of them in the same town. Why do all criminals choose to pursue illegal activity in Bayport of all places?

Shark-jumping aside, I enjoyed this book. Mr. French has a cool name. Good enough for me.
