This is definitely one of my favorite Hardy Boys mysteries. Frank and Joe want to have lunch with their uncle, but when they try to do so, their Unlce Hugh is kidnapped and Joe and Frank are suddenly in trouble with the U.S. Espionage Unit. A certain special agent is totally bent on proving that Uncle Hugh is a traitor and he thinks that the boys helped him to escape. And a woman named Charity appearson Uncle Hugh's trail and to make things even more complicated yet again, Frank and Joe are being tailed by two different gangs who want to kill them! The rest of the novel follows Frank, Joe and Uncle Hugh's adventures and how they miraculously come out for the better.
