The Deadliest Dare (Hardy Boys Casefiles #30)
From the back of the book:
When Bayport is hit by a rash of vicious pranks, Frank and Joe investigate. They aren't sure the tricks are meant to be funny, especially the mysterious phone tip that leads them to a spooky mansion that happens to be on fire.
After dousing the blaze, the brother detectives find a vital clue. The trail leads them to a bizarre club dedicated to danger. But the pranks may be only a cover for an ultraserious game plan. Soon the young sleuths find themselves playing straight men for a deadly practical joke-where the punch line is murder.
From inside the book:
Carefully Frank and Joe worked their way down along the slippery cliff walk that led to the old Hickerson Mansion.
Joe touched his brother's shoulder. "There's definitely somebody in there," he whispered.
"Right-I saw a flashlight shining around in there, too. Shall we follow?" But when Frank stepped across the threshold, he stopped.
Lightning flashed, and for a few seconds Frank could see a length of carpeted corridor in the crackling light. Two sets of muddy footprints ran down the faded carpeting and through the doorway at the far end.
Then the Hardys heard the sounds of feet running and a door slamming.
"They're taking off!" Frank charged for the doorway. He slid open the heavy oak doors and dived into the next room. Joe followed him but stopped short next to his brother.
The room they'd burst into was on fire.
