Hardy Boys Adventure #10 Tunnel of Secrets by Franklin W Dixon

Now you know. 🙂 Check back here to see when the synopsis is released. 🙂 I usually add the cover and synopsis to the original blog entry for each book title. 🙂

UPDATE: Synopsis from publisher Simon and Schuster ~

When Frank and Joe set out to explore caves and tunnels, they dig themselves into some dark and dangerous trouble in this Hardy Boys adventure.

When a sinkhole opens up and swallows one of Bayport’s historic statues, Frank and Joe suspect something—or someone—shady at play. They jump at the chance to investigate; Joe as a member of an urban exploration club, and Frank as photographer for the school paper.

But in the thick of their search, the boys stumble upon an entire underground city that’s been abandoned for years. Now the city is home to a cultish band of criminals who plan to take over Bayport. Frank and Joe are determined to shut down the crooks, but after being barreled down by a boulder and nearly squashed by a runaway train, they have to wonder: are they in over their heads?





Hardy Boys Adventures #9 Curse of the Ancient Emerald

The 9th title in the Hardy Boys Adventures series is Curse of the Ancient Emerald and will be available in paperback, hardcover, and ebook the 9th of June 2015! Interested in more details like the cover and the synopsis? Then you want to check back here as they became available! 😉

Synopsis Update:

Okay, here’s the plot description of #9 Curse of the Ancient Emerald. The riddles sound like fun and could be cool. Hopefully it will be a good mystery and adventure. 🙂 Check out the synopsis below and while you read, you can spot titles or part titles from the first four volumes of the Hardy Boys Adventures . 😉

Frank and Joe must take the shine off a jewel thief who sends ominous riddles in this Hardy Boys adventure.

First a priceless painting disappears from the museum; then two ancient samurai swords vanish from a private collection. A string of robberies has hit Bayport, and all signs point to “the Phantom,” a recently released ex-con who last struck more than twenty years ago. There’s only one problem: the Phantom has vanished into thin air, and not even Frank and Joe Hardy can track him down.

Then the boys begin receiving threatening notes in the mail, each one containing a strange riddle. And it looks like the Phantom’s next target could be the valuable Emerald of Astara, the 2,500-year-old crown jewel of the Bayport Historical Museum. Can the Hardys crack the Phantom’s code before he strikes again?

I’m sure the real Frank and Joe Hardy can track the Phantom down – hopefully they’ll be in this book. 😎

Cover Update:

And here’s the cool-looking cover! 😎

Hardy Boys Secret Files #18 Medieval Upheaval

Volume 18 of The Hardy Boys Secret Files series is entitled Medieval Upheaval and will be available in paperback as well as ebook the 4th of August 2015. Check back here for more details! 🙂

Update: Hardy Boys Secret Files #18 cover ~

HBSF #18 Medieval Upheaval by Franklin W Dixon

UPDATE: Synopsis from publisher Simon and Schuster ~

A medieval faire brings the past to life—and a mystery to the present—in this Hardy Brothers Secret Files adventure.

Frank and Joe Hardy are excited to visit the King Arthur Faire in Bayport. On Kid’s Day, there are all kinds of special contests and events, like the Medieval Maze and Junior Jester Court Slam. The highlight of the day is the Junior Joust competition: whoever can stay on a mechanical horse and lance a golden ring with their (fake) sword will win seats to watch the real jousting competition later in the day.

To everyone’s surprise (and delight) Joe and Frank’s friend, Chet Morton, manages to lance the ring and beat out town bully, Adam Ackerman. But after celebrating the win at a pizza stand, Chet discovers his ring—and ticket for the grand prize—is missing! Can Joe and Frank figure out who is the rogue knight before the big show?





Hardy Boys eBooks!

If you have a phone, ereader, tablet, or you could read on your computer laptop – you have many titles from the excellent Hardy Boys mysteries to choose from! 😀 So far with the Hardy Boys series the first 66 titles are now available in paper and ebook from Penguin/Grosset & Dunlap and #136-#190 from Simon and Schuster. 🙂

I’m so happy that the cool Hardy Boys stories are/will be available as eBooks and I look forward to more titles that will hopefully be announced soon! Awesome! 😀 Exciting mysteries to solve and dangerous adventures to go on with Frank and Joe! 😎

In addition to cool Hardy Boys mysteries already available digitally, including these are the ones that will be available this summer. 😎

160 A Game Called Chaos by Franklin W Dixon

~Check out these upcoming titles and dates~

30th July
#157 The Lure of the Italian Treasure
#158 The London Deception

13th Aug.
#159 Daredevils
#160 A Game Called Chaos




Aug. Update: Hardy Boys #59-#66 (and in the Nancy Drew series #57-#62) aren’t still listed on the Penguin/Grosset & Dunlap site and the eBooks are also currently unavailable from online booksellers. I’m looking into it. I think maybe Simon and Schuster (who owns the rights to them) wants to have #59-#190 available from them. If that’s the case, then they’ll eventually be releasing them as eBooks. Remember, those eight Hardy Boys hardcover books (and eight Nancy Drew books) can still be found new in stores or online while supplies last and after that, you can still find them used. Plus, checking them out of libraries. 

Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Book Characters

I’ve been working on putting together details about the much-loved characters in the Hardy Boys books and the Nancy Drew books. Although it’s not completed, I thought I’d go ahead and post it then add to the page. Here’s the link: Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Characters. 🙂

Upcoming Hardy Boys Mysteries Available as eBooks

Into my second month with this blog and I’m happy to say there continue to be more Hardy Boys Mystery Stories that are going to be released as eBooks! 😀 So there are additional exciting mysteries to join the lineup of Hardy Boys Mysteries already available in digital form for your ereader. 🙂 Today I found four more titles of Hardy eBooks that I’ve added to ones I’d already found out about. I had been going to post them each month, but it is so much fun looking forward to them and seeing what ones are coming up, I’m going to go ahead and post more. Then when the date arrives I can post about that. 🙂 I’m keeping a list of what ones are already available and also ones that haven’t yet been announced.

I know many prefer paper and I love having the physical books on my shelves. And you don’t need a battery to read it. 😛 At the same time, eBooks can be very handy, too. After all, even though I can carry a pretty good stack of books out of the library, I can’t carry as many as would fit on an ereader. 😛 So I love both paper and digital editions of great books like Hardy Boys Mysteries. 😎 There are libraries in the US who have eBooks and ereaders available for people. 🙂

So here are more Hardy Boys Mysteries, eBook editions, for upcoming months. This includes two previously posted about, but since they will be released next week, I thought it wouldn’t hurt to add them. 🙂
