- Brief Synopsis:
- While in England Frank and Joe are drafted to solve the mysteries surrounding a movie star. When she goes missing, the Hardys realize that they need to find her before the mystery can be unraveled.
- Long Synopsis:
- From the back of the book: The battle of Britain Jed Shannon, a young American movie star on location in England, has received a threat against his life. When the Hardys set out to investigate, they are drawn into a case worthy of Sherlock' Holmes-and into a conspiracy as thick as the London fog. Jillian Seabright, a beautiful British actress befriended by Jed has vanished. The key to the mystery lies in her resemblance to missing emerald heiress Emily Cornwall. Frank and Joe trace the damsel in distress to a medieval mansion on the moors-Castle Fear. Dodging bullets and battle-axes, the boys are out to prove that chivalry is not dead-but one wrong move and they will be! =============== From inside the book: LETHAL WEAPON As the Hardys were passing the stone stairway that led up to the ground floor of the castle, the door at its top creaked open. Framed in the light was a huge man, staring down at them. Moving much faster than a man his size usually did, he darted out a hand to grab something off the wall. Frank sucked in his breath through his teeth when he saw what it was. Though rusty and covered with spiderwebs, the ancient battle-ax the man now held in his hands looked lethal enough to take care of both him and Joe. Snarling in rage, the man charged toward them, swinging the ax like a baseball bat. The sharp edges sliced the air as he whipped the handle back and forth. Frank and Joe had no choice-they had to retreat before the whistling blade got any closer. Unless the man got tired, they didn't stand a chance.
