Sobre El Autor

Franklin W. Dixon Franklin W. Dixon is actually a pseudonym for any number of ghostwriters who have had the distinction of writing stories for the Hardy Boys series. The series was originally created by Edward Stratmeyer in 1926, the same mastermind of the Nancy Drew detective series, Tom Swift, mostrar más the Rover Boys and other characters. While Stratmeyer created the outlines for the original series, it was Canadian writer Leslie McFarlane who breathed life to the stories and created the persona Franklin W. Dixon. McFarlane wrote for the series for over twenty years and is credited with success of the early collection of stories. As the series became more popular, it was pared down, the format changed and new ghostwriters added their own flavor to the stories. Part of the draw of the Hardy Boys is that as the authors changed, so to did the times and the story lines. While there is no one true author of the series, each ghostwriter can be given credit for enhancing the life of this series and never unveiling that there really is no Franklin W. Dixon.

A solid read. Chet has a new job as a Freddy Frost ice cream truck driver. But trouble begins when he is temporarily kidnapped on his first day on the job. The culprits could be a new gang in Bayport High called The Starz. Frank and Joe, as well as Iola, Callie and Chet are put to the test trying to uncover the nefarious plot behind the kidnapping.

A highly enjoyable read. Frank, Joe, Chet and Iola are on the set of an up and coming sci-fi television show named Warp Space. Iola won a contest for the show, the reward being she gets to have a small part in Warp Space. Then one of the main stars gets hurt and Chet fills in as a replacement in the role of Sirius the Slayer. But sabotage is afoot. Someone on set is trying to ruin the show and get it cancelled! It's up to Frank and Joe to solve the mystery and save Warp Space.

This was a mediocre HB story. Not too much mystery as Frank and Joe spend most of their time with a group of other teens working on restoring a structure in the south of France. There is a small mystery of buried treasure in a castle next door. But not much happens toward solving it. Random dumb luck provides the answer to the missing loot. And despite all the suspects that could be involved I figured out who the real culprit was fairly early. On a brighter note, anyone reading this mystery who has a cultural French background will enjoy the phrases, settings and landmarks that pop up throughout the book.… (más)
