Synopses & Reviews
The Hardy brothers try to find out who is behind a rash of automobile thefts that are occurring on Shore Road just outside of Bayport.
They re back for more -- just the way you remember them! First published in 1928, this is the fifth book in the Hardy Boys "RM" Mystery Series. This reissue is the original edition from before the story was completely rewritten in 1968, and also features the original cover art by W.S. Rogers. In the story, automobiles were disappearing most mysteriously from the Shore Road. It remained for the Hardy Boys to solve the mystery.
