It all starts when Fenton Hardy, is engaged by an experimental race car and motor designer to investigate a series of mysterious accidents. Three of his drivers have crashed because the windshields of their cars were suddenly crazed, thus cutting off forward vision. Frank and Joe uncover one slim clue. Each of the drivers had seen a signpost marked 'Danger' shortly before the accident. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It's not a book I remember from reading when I was younger, and I wonder whether the word 'sinister' in the title put me off it then? I know there are books in the Three Investigators series that I wouldn't re-read at the same age because they were too creepy. However it's not sinister at all. The 'suspicious' signpost might have been a more precise title for the book I read.
I did park the book for a few months at about chapter fifteen, so it clearly didn't grip me. It's surprisingly sci-fi in some respects, and didn't particularly fit with the other books earlier, which felt much more dated.
Nothing special here then, as the series goes, and not one I'd pick out as a must-read.

My husband finally said a few months ago: "ya know, when I was your age I used to love to read the Hardy Boys. I could never put them down." So I ordered this one, and even though it looks old school, believe me, he LOVED it!!!! He was so into the mystery and the characters and now we are on our 3rd Hardy Boys book. You don't have to go in order, as each one is a separate adventure.
--My son LOVED it.
--I had 30 minutes of peace every night w a glass of wine instead of hearing "Mom!!! I hate this book! "
--NOTHING. Absolutely nothing. If your child doesn't love to read, please try a Hardy Boys mystery. It might just work. :0
These are beautiful books to behold and to hold. What a great way to start a collection of some of America's classic books for young people.
It's even more exciting if you read the books in chronological order because as the 20th century moves forward so do developments in technology in the Hardy Boys books. I've read the first 80 Hardy Boys books in the original editions which show wear and tear and remain in my library but these new beauties have their own special display area.
