Hello, Hardys.

The Story.

Frank and Joe Hardy are just wrapping up a low-key vacation in Jamaica – and glad they are for the rest! – when they stumble upon an ancient mystery-shrouded death mask. As they begin to investigate their discovery, it becomes increasingly obvious that they aren’t the only ones interested in sorting out its message – a gang of criminals is also eager to learn its secrets.

Can the Hardys be the first to unmask the secret of the mask?

Discussion.

A little bit of superstition – the Hardys’ Jamaican friend gives Joe an amulet and Frank a charm to wear. A “ju-ju” man tries to put a curse on them. William intimidates a few natives by telling them that he is a powerful “ju-ju”. That sort of thing.

Conclusion. Not as attention grabbing as some of their other stories.
