New Releases > Armchair Fiction > Armchair-New!


Armchair Fiction presents the original Hardy Boys stories. In this, Franklin W. Dixon’s “The Secret of the Old Mill,” Frank and Joe Hardy find themselves trying to track down the hideout of a counterfeiting gang whose operations appear to be located somewhere near the Hardy’s hometown of Bayport. The trail soon leads them to a mysterious old mill, once abandoned, but now in operation again. However, Frank and Joe soon discover what’s going on inside is far from legitimate and rife with danger for those with prying eyes. Armchair fiction is proud to offer the first three volumes of the Hardy Boys series: “The Tower Treasure,” “The House on the Cliff,” and “The Secret of the Old Mill,” all written in 1927. All three volumes feature both the 1927 and 1940s cover illustrations, as well as the black and white interior illustrations by Walter S. Rogers and Arthur O. Scott. These beloved original stories were abandoned by Grosset and Dunlap in 1959 when it was decided to rewrite and update all of their early Hardy Boys stories. However, many Hardys scholars feel that these updated editions lacked the charm and excitement of the originals. Gone were roadsters and touring cars and much of the cultural flavor of those early days. The original author, Leslie McFarlane (writing as Franklin W. Dixon), filled these initial Hardy Boys tales with an irrepressible sense of mystery and excitement. So join Frank and Joe in their original adventures as they pursue a myriad of crooks and solve nail-biting mysteries, all the while fighting for justice and the traditional American way of life.
