Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Alright for the first in the series This review concerns the revised 1959 edition. Frank and Joe try to prove to their father that they are good detectives by helping their friend, Chet Morton, find his stolen car and later by helping to clear another friend's father of robbery charges. This book is not the most thrilling mystery; however, that is understandable given that it was to be Frank and Joe's first case and considering that it wasn't that bad. Nonetheless, I would recommend reading the original version; the plot of both versions is identical and the events are mostly the same (some events where deleted in the revised edition and others slightly changed), but the revised edition has been drained of all of the rich language and strong characterization found in the original. The revised edition is still a good book, but if you have the option, I suggest reading the original because you will probably enjoy it more.
