Fenton Hardy has asked his sons, Frank and Joe, to keep an eye on the Black Parrot, a ship of dubious associations harbored in Bayport Harbor. He can offer no further information, but it isn’t long before Frank and Joe begin to dig up clues on their own – and deduce that the Black Parrot is controlled by a man obsessed with resurrecting an ancient, deadly dynasty!
Can the Hardys stop this man before he wreaks more havoc in his bizarre quest to reclaim his family’s property from museums?
Conclusion. Other than a few “Oh, come on!” moments, this book is undistinguishable in the Hardy Boys canon.
