Frank and Joe have been left to their own devices while their parents are away on yet another vacation, when suddenly there's a phone call: Aunt Gertrude is coming! That formidable lady of indeterminate years will wring their necks if the house isn't spotless when she arrives. Being boys the Hardy Boys have neglected their linens and make haste to drop it all off at the best Chinese laundry in town.

Unfortunately instead of the friendly Sam Lee, they are greeted by the sinister Louie Fong who accuses the boys of eavesdropping and doesn't see at all reliable as far as laundry. Spoiler alert: they never get their laundry back!

Things keep going wrong for the Hardy Boys. Their aunt fails to turn up at the docks, a young man they invite to stay overnight goes missing along with many important papers of their father, and Aunt Gertrude complains of a vision of a Chinamen coming in through the window - you may have guessed that the boys find footprints under the window shortly thereafter.

The mystery this time is all about the illegal smuggling of Chinese into Bayport (which is on the Atlantic coast and therefore convenient for this) and a curious case of duplicate identities. Along the way Tom Wat, a young Chinese man whose life is in jeopardy may or may not be dressed up as a girl by the boys to avoid detection.

There is a mix of tone-deaf cultural depiction in here and outdated terms (read: Chinamen), but also a lot of racially charged associations that are a real problem. Language changes over time and I can't fault the author for trying to write in the, uh, "pidgin English" of the Chinese immigrant....well, maybe a little. However, when we're constantly reminded of the dusky or yellow cast of the skin of our villain, and reminders of the suspicious differences between our heroes and villains you know we're supposed to make certain associations.

Bad form Hardy Boys, bad form.

Speaking of bad form, our good friend Chet has a good-sized part in the novel, but Biff is on to my game and refused to make an appearance.

The revision of this 1934 novel came out in 1965 and involves the Hardy Boys investigating illegal immigration in a fictional island nation and stolen blueprints to a miniature spy camera. I'm sure laundry has something to do with it.

I absolutely loved Nancy Drew growing up. This was a series I latched on to for dear life and never let go. So after my obsession with Nancy Drew started to dwindle (mostly because I had read all the ones I could get my hands on), I moved on to The Hardy Boys because that was the natural next step, duh. Love the Hardy Boys (though they weren't quite as amazing and Nancy Drew and her friends). ( )

Nothing better on a Maine 4th of July camping trip than to delve once again into the Hardy Boys! I so love these 60's blue hardcovers and all of the art renderings of the exciting moments. This is another big adventure that takes place while the entire older family is away, and the boys are left to fend for themselves....and of course, get deeply involved in some dangerous intrigue of some local industrial espionage! Trips overseas, a near demise in an airplane flight failure, escape from rebels in a dictatorship, and SPOILER!!!!! They live to fight again! Slowly finalizing my collection of both blue and brown hardcover editions......and i cannot wait for the next one!! ( )

When Frank and Joe Hardy returned from a hike down the Shore Road one afternoon and found in the mail-box a notice to the effect that a message was awaiting them at the local telegraph office, they were immediately very much excited.

Bokbeskrivning
- Det var intressant, mumlade Frank och tittade ut genom fönstret.
På marken som var våt efter nattens regn såg han ett tydligt fotavtryck.
- Det kan vara värt att titta närmare på, sa han till Joe.
Bröderna sprang ut och där under fönstret fann de inte bara ett utan ett halvt dussin fotspår.
- Fotspår under fönstret! utropade Frank undrande. Vad kan det betyda?
