Hardy Boys Adventures #12 The Madman of Black Bear Mountain

Anyone have any guesses about the plot? I always try to guess what the mystery is going to be. Black Bear Mountain is in New York, although there could be other places with that name. In the main series, The Hardy Boys (The Hardy Boys Mysteries), Bayport is, of course, in New York. ๐Ÿ™‚

Update Synopsis from Simon and Schuster:ย 

Brother detectives Frank and Joe face perils in the wilderness as they try to track down their missing teacher in this thrilling Hardy Boys adventure.

As part of a research unit, Bayport Highโ€™s Green Environment Conservation Club (GECO) is taking a field tripโ€”camping on nearby Black Bear Mountain, where the students will help field biologist Dr. Max Kroopnik investigate local flora. Frankโ€™s there to geek out about nature while Joeโ€™s along for the thrills. Not only does Black Bear Mountain live up to its nameโ€”the fierce furry animals are everywhereโ€”but rumor has it that a madman lurks in the forest, and the crazy dude has a penchant for feasting on human flesh. The Hardys scoff at the urban legend, but the rest of their class isnโ€™t so convinced.

When the campers wake up, however, not only do they find a bear roaming the campsite, but their teacher is missingโ€ฆand blood is streaked across the front of his tent. The GECOs are stranded alone in the wilderness with no technology, no way to call for help, and, quite possibly, a madman on the loose.

Luckily, Frank and Joe have a good amount of survival skills under their belt. But when they venture in search of their teacher, they find themselves hunted by a mysterious axe-wielding man in face paint and bearskins, falling into dangerous rapids, and perched on the edge of a precarious waterfall. Will the Hardys be able to find their teacher and make it back to the campsite alive?



This has the potential to be full of action and adventure. Ah, GECOs….really? :/ Also, I have to say, I’m thankful the Hardys don’t just believe the creepy rumors.

  1. Thanks for the information, Ann. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have some vague ideas, but with this Adventure series being how it is, it is hard to tell what they have come up with. I’m interested in reading the plot when it is available and I’m looking forward to seeing the cover art. ๐Ÿ™‚ Callie

    • No problem, Callie! ๐Ÿ™‚ Lol, as in your not touching it with a guess? ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜† I’m just teasing you. Yep, me, too! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hopefully soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Looking forward some more information. I have read some digest, some casefiles and Trouble in the Arcade.
    There are no Hardy books sold anymore here. Only in SecondHand-stores and it’s often the ones I already read. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Looking forward to one of your stories too. Hopefully soon

    With love Helena

    • Hi Helena! ๐Ÿ™‚ Great hearing from you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve still got plenty of HB books to get that I want to read, too – love having more to search for and read. ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s a real shame that they don’t carry these books in Sweden! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ They certainly should be available. Hopefully some will come into the used book stores for you. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Don’t worry – I’ll have a story up hopefully before too long. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so very much for your faithful enthusiasm and encouragement, Helena – it’s so very appreciated. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Sending lots of love, via prayer, to you in Sweden! โค

  3. The cover art is great!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the depth, coloring, shading, detailing, etc.; the artist did beautiful work on it!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for the update, Ann!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Callie! ๐Ÿ™‚ Yep, I think so, too! ๐Ÿ™‚ I totally agree – it’s such an action centered cover that you really want to see what happens and how they get out of it. No problem, Callie! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I’m glad the author knows they have survival skills. Could be good. Again, the cover portrays the excitement much better than the plot description. I plan on reading this one, too.

Please leave a reply! Thanks! :)
