"You think we'll survive this?" seventeen-year-old Joe Hardy asked his older brother as he felt the muscles in his back tense up.
"I don't know." Frank Hardy stood grinning, surrounded by shopping bags. They were everywhere. "They've got us outnumbered four to one. It does look hopeless."
"It wouldn't be, if you two would stop procrastinating and load those bags," a stern voice insisted.
Frank and Joe smiled sheepishly. The voice belonged to their ever-efficient aunt Gertrude, their father's only sister. "It's four o'clock, and we still have three more stops to make before dinner."
The two brothers quietly groaned and finished loading the shopping bags in through the rear of their custom van. The boys often used the van to chase down crooks, but things had been quiet lately, as if all criminals had taken a holiday.
They couldn't help feeling a little disappointed, as this was the second day of their weeklong school break and they had hoped to spend it doing something - anything - more exciting than shopping.
It was a beautiful early fall day, perfect for biking, skateboarding - not for playing errand boys.
AN UNDERCOVER STORY BRINGS CRIME OUT IN THE OPEN!
Frank and Joe's aunt Gertrude leads a pretty quiet life - until an old high school friend turns up in Bayport. Clayton Silvers once had a distinguished career as an investigative reporter. Then he was accused of falsifying some of his articles and even taking money to expose his subjects. Now he's in town, working on the explosive story that he says will be his comeback.
Aunt Gertrude staunchly maintains her friend's innocence, but the Hardys aren't so sure that Silvers is a sterling character. Since he's been around, the danger level has escalated. Now the Hardys are the ones being watched and stalked, their every move monitored. Silvers is playing a high-stakes game, and the Hardys don't want to be on the losing end!
