The Hardy Boys #30 The Wailing Siren Mystery ~ My Review

Hardy Boys fans have a lot to enjoy in The Wailing Siren Mystery, the 30th volume of the main HB series! 😀 Great scenes, intense danger, and thrilling excitement in this. Great family, too. I love that. 🙂 You’ve got all kinds of things happening! An intense storm at the beginning while the Hardy brothers are in their boat, Sleuth. A mysterious siren, money falling from the sky, danger from a potential collision with a yacht, theft, kidnapping – and that’s just in the first half of the book!!!! And you’re there with them every step of the way! 😎 The exciting action is great. The heart-warming brotherly love is great. It’s an excellent read! 🙂

The mysteries in the book all flow well and while a lot goes on, it’s not too much. I love that many Hardy book characters show up in The Wailing Siren Mystery. The whole Hardy family ~ Fenton, Laura, Frank, Joe, and Aunt Gertrude. Joe’s love, Iola, and Frank’s love, Callie. Chet Morton, Biff Hooper, Tony Prito, Officer Con Riley, Fenton’s operative Sam Radley, Chief Ezra Collig, Jack Wayne gets introduced – and kidnapped by the bad guys! And we even have an appearance by Oscar Smuff, who’s a policeman in the mystery and does his job. 😮 I missed Phil Cohen in this one. He must have been on vacation elsewhere. Hope he had fun! 🙂

There are so many parts I could quote and talk about – how do I choose?!?!?! 😀 The clues, investigating, and crime-fighting are very well done. They use their brains and utilize resources including tech and fight when they have to. 😎

Frank is kidnapped and what an intense part of the book that is! Joe is a great brother (so is Frank!) and he knows something isn’t right. He goes to investigate and tries to find his brother. You can’t stop reading! 😮 Great brotherly love. 🙂 😎

As has been mentioned on The Bayport Library page here, the wolves are scary. They can be terrifying in the book because of the realistic writing. 

Okay, so there are number of really intense scenes! Another one is when Joe goes missing and Frank’s really worried. Joe and Chet risk their lives and well-being at a threat to Iola’s life. I don’t think I can tell you more without spoilers! If you’ve read it you know what I’m talking about, and if you haven’t, you will when you read it! 🙂

So many great quotes in The Wailing Siren Mystery. Such as from feisty Aunt Gertrude ~

…Aunt Gertrude said excitedly: “Take your two-way radio and keep in touch. If anybody bothers you, I’ll give him a piece of my mind!”

And she means it, too! 😀 😎

There are a lot of great scenes in this book (I think I’ve already alluded to that 😉 Oh, wait, I think I flat-out said that 😀 ), but I’ll share this one with everyone where a bad guy is trying to scare the Hardy brothers. Yeah, I love that they don’t let the bad guys win or intimidate them. Frank and Joe outwit him. 😀 To set the scene, they are on the Sleuth and the one bad guy pirate has just gotten on the boat and is asking the brothers if they’re going to leave or not like they’d been warned and threatened to ~

He was several inches over six feet and as burly as a bear. menacingly he approached Joe.

   “Are you going to scram?”
 
   “No.”

   The man lunged at Joe, who tried to grapple with him. Frank sprang to his brother’s defense, but before he could clamp a hold on the stranger, the assailant had pitched Joe far over the side of the boat. After a brief struggle Frank followed. The Hardys bobbed to the surface several feet from the boats.

   Frank hissed into Joe’s ear, “Pretend we can’t swim.”

   The boys thrashed about madly, crying for help.

I just love the way they tricked the bad guys! There’s more to the scene and I could keep going. There are a number of cool action scenes throughout the book. It’s really difficult not putting on more, but I can’t put practically the whole book on here. 😛 Believe me, you want to read this one. Most libraries should have it and certainly booksellers should also. 🙂

Brave Aunt Gertrude does a great job with helping Joe against a thug by using a shillelagh (shillelagh just sounds so cool) saving Joe from a vicious kick. 🙂 

Another great quote that is the difficult, but necessary stance ~

“We don’t go for deals,” Joe said.

Even when things looked bad they didn’t give up hope and are defiant against the bad guys. A lot of bravery in this mystery! Look at all they have to fight – greedy, violent, murderous thieves. Multiple kidnappings, grand larceny, and a lot more. That takes more than a little courage and skill – and of course, a lot of prayer!

The Hardy Boys #30 The Wailing Siren Mystery is available in hardback and digital formats at booksellers and libraries. I definitely recommend it! 🙂 😎

For everyone who has been reading it recently, too, or has read it before, or is looking forward to reading it, please let me know what you think! 🙂 There’s definitely a lot to like about this exciting mystery! 🙂 😎

New collector covers coming 17th Oct, 2017 –
The Hardy Boys #5 Hunting for Hidden Gold
The Hardy Boys #6 The Shore Road Mystery

Of the current covers, my favorite is #5 Hunting for Hidden Gold, and one of my all-time faves among all Hardy Boys books. The outdoor scenes on all four are cool-looking (not just literally like the snow on #8 The Mystery of Cabin Island. 😉 ) I like the cliffs and caves on #5 Hunting for Hidden Gold, #6 The Shore Road Mystery and #7 The Secret of the Caves – they look like fun to see and explore in the book. You can almost hear the water rolling onto the shore on The Secret of the Caves. Naturally, since I love The Hardy Boys books, it’s hard waiting – while simultaneously dreading – the collector cover art reveal. 😛 I try to always be optimistic and hope for the best. Keep it tuned here to see ’em! 🙂

The Hardy Boys are The Clues Brothers #13 Pirates Ahoy! ~ My Review

Nine year old Frank and eight year old Joe Hardy are the Clues Brothers – and treasure hunters! 😎 Pirates Ahoy! is a fun adventure mystery with some good-natured humor included! Who can resist a treasure map? Not the Hardys and Chet – and not me or my sib! 😀 I’m glad we went on the treasure hunt with the Hardys brothers and Chet. 🙂

On the cover you see Joe, Chet, and Frank intently studying a treasure map. The parrot on Joe’s shoulder is quite a character. It’s not Playback, but this parrot is also a smart-aleck one named Horatio Crackerblower. 😛 Horatio is the pet of Captain Sid, also quite a character. Captain Sid owns Captain Sid’s Treasure Cove, a sailing souvenir shop located near the Bayport Marina that the boys go to. 😎

Hardy Boys Clues Brothers 13 Pirates Ahoy by Franklin W Dixon

As mentioned already, there’s some fun humor mixed in with the intriguing mystery. I like looking around the shop, although the dust threatened to make me sneeze a lot. Searching around is fun. Frank, Joe, and Chet are determined to find out if pirates ever stopped in Bayport, plus follow a map to treasure. 😎

So, do they find treasure? Gelt? Do they find proof that pirates were ever in Bayport? Does Chet keep his cookies when they try to go sailing? Well, mateys, you’ll have to read and discover for yerselves! (I couldn’t go through the whole review without a bit of pirate talk! 😆 ) You can search and find a used paperback copy of the Clues Brothers #13 Pirates Ahoy! for a good price or buy it in digital form in the ebook of your choice. Definitely a fun summer read! 🙂 😎
