Hardy Boys Casefiles.

The Story.

The Hardy boys are happy to be going on an overseas trip that promises to be semi-normal; they’ve both been chosen to participate in an international summer school designed to bring together youths from around the world to foster international cooperation. At least, that’s what it claims to be. But the Hardy boys and their new friends Pyotr and Petra Zigonev quickly become the target of violent kidnapping attempts! Who could be behind these schemes? And why were the Hardys really chosen to participate in this school?

Discussion.

Well, as this is a casefile, the answer of course lies in international intrigue, the involvement of both the terrorist group Assassins, and the counter-terrorist group The Network, for which the Hardys occasionally work. All is dynamite and gunshots as the Hardys race to discover why their friends are so important to the terrorists.

Joe lightly romances Petra, but the romance has more to do with Joe’s thoughts towards her than his actual actions.

Conclusion. Ehp.
