Footprints under a window? SOUNDS DANGEROUS.

The Story.

When Frank and Joe head down to the Bayport docks to pick up their Aunt Gertrude from her extended vacation, they are shocked to see a man dive overboard from the Northerly, and even more surprised when he runs away frightened from their help leaving behind him only the mysterious words, “Footprints will get—.”

What is the story behind the man and why was he so terrified? And does his disappearance have anything to do with the security leaks at the top secret company, Micro Eye?

Discussion.

Of course it does and of course the Hardys prove themselves more than brilliant in the ensuing investigation that takes place. This story seemed a little disjointed, featuring as it did a mid-story flight to South America where, of course, the Hardys managed to find the exact contact they needed.

‘Golly’ and ‘gee’ are each used once for whom that may concern.

Conclusion. Not as thrilling as The Mystery of the Chinese Junk or What Happened at Midnight.
