Extreme Danger (U.B. #1)

In Extreme Danger, the first volume of the Undercover Brothers series, we find Frank and Joe entering a new era of more mature adventures as agents of A.T.A.C. (American Teens Against Crime). In addition the story is written in first person narrative style with Frank and Joe alternating chapters.
This story has the Boys investigating the sabotaging of an Extreme Sports meet in Philadelphia. Suspicious accidents and even a murder are centered around the meet and it’s up to Frank and Joe to find out who is behind them! There’s plenty of exciting adventure and mystery to be had in the course of the investigation.
Many of the characters from the older stories show up here: Mr. & Mrs. Hardy and, of course, Aunt Gertrude who is now called Aunt Trudy. Naturally, it wouldn’t be a Hardy Boys story unless Chet Morton showed up and he makes a cameo appearance late in the story.
I enjoyed this story and if it is a sign of things to come, the new series should be a hit!
