A spectacular conundrum involving money is always interesting. In this adventure, the Hardy Boys go to a Rocky Mountain blizzard to hunt for the members of a slick gang who were involved in a payroll robbery. When on the hunt for the gang, they encounter many interesting features including a mine cave-in which makes the detectives' story twice as interesting. Will the Hardy Boys catch the daring payroll robbers, or will they continue to be mystified? This story adds on to the great collection of the Hardy Boys' mysteries and kept me occupied throughout the entire cat and mouse chase.

The fifth entry in the original Hardy Boys series finds the detectives heading out west to Montana to help their father round up a gang of outlaws. Originally written in the twenties, it was updated to this version in the late fifties. Even for being so old (the lack of modern tech is the only thing that really dates it), it stands up very well. It's exciting and engaging and doesn't lag. Also, despite being a kid's book, it's still very adult friendly. A must for fans of the series and possibly the best one yet.

I had started this book years ago at a friends house but never finished it. I checked out this copy but it is NOT the original story .... it is updated with airplanes rather than the original with trains. So I didn't continue my read and will wait to visit my friend's house again to finish the original.
