Hardy Boys

Abu Dhabi buzzing with the news that the hot new Hardy Boys mysteries are finally in. The town hasn’t been this worked up since Blyton’s steamy “5 cover up their faces” came out in 1937.

        The Yellow Feather Mystery was about budgie smugglers.

        Well not really. It’s set out West and while I’m reluctant to dump a bunch of spoilers, let’s just say the plot revolves around a new brand of ‘Crooked Arrow’ cigarettes. The cigarettes are linked to a number of mysterious crimes in which people pass out and wake up with their possessions gone. The Hardy boys discover that these ‘Crooked Arrows’ actually contain a small plastic bladder inside the filter, which when squeezed dispenses a powerful knockout gas. Turns out the gas comes from this ravine out on an Indian reservation where evil tobacconists are forcing Indian slaves to bottle it at the source and roll it into cigarettes. Can’t remember exactly how the Boys wrap it up but I’m pretty sure Chet eats some toffee or whatever
