Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie #1
by Anthony Del Col
I received an ARC ebook from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I loved Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys books when I was a kid. Saw this on NetGalley and immediately wanted to read it.
In The Big Lie Frank and Joe’s dad has been murdered and they are suspected of killing him. Nancy shows up to help them clear their names and solve the case.
This a modern, dark story about Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys. A few other characters from older books make an appearance too, like Tom Swift and the Bobbsey Twins.
The artwork seemed a bit dated. Since the characters were more modern versions, I would have preferred more modern illustrations. As for the story, I enjoyed that this was a little bit noir. It’s definitely darker than the original stories, but I enjoyed this modern take on some of my favorite characters.
