From the back of the book:
Frank and Joe fly to Alaska to trace Scott Sanders, who's supposed to be working on a top-secret project for a mining firm. When company officials claim they've never heard of Scott, the Hardys grow suspicious. They find that some company managers have been selling jobs on the big oil pipeline.

The quiet of the sunlit night was interrupted by a splashing sound. The Hardys looked up to see a large brown bear waddling toward them.

"He's coming nearer," Joe whispered, eyes wide.
The bear abruptly rose up on its hind legs, throwing a long shadow that fell like night over the boys.
Then the unnatural silence was shattered with one giant roar as the grizzly began its charge!
