Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie by Anthony Del Col
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Brings back Drew and the Hardy Bros for the contemporary world. I enjoyed this so much and look forward to the next volume. Fantastic crime noir story, incorporating characters from both series. I also just love the inclusion of other Stratemeyer Syndicate characters: The Rover Boys as the villains, Tom Swift helps out and the Bobbsey Twins are hanging in the background. The ending lets us know they will play a bigger part next time around.Great story in which Frank and Joe are being framed for the death of their father. Nancy helps them to find the truth but in the end, she has to face some unpleasant facts, too.The art's atmospheric tone adds to the noir feeling of the story.
