Hi all,
    Just submitted the next HB Casefiles hot off the scanner glass, #39 Flesh 
and Blood. I'll go ahead and post summary info as I've only got one title.

 Jake, who is going to watch Law & Order SVU now...

From the back of the book:

Family with a vengeance

A tornado has hit Bayport, but the deadliest storm is still brewing-in the 
Hardy home. Years ago, Fenton Hardy sent a criminal named Leonard Mock to 
prison. Now Mock's son has returned to Bayport to seek revenge. He has vowed to 
put Frank and Joe's father away for good!

But Leonard Mock lost his son to adoption when the boy was five. His name was 
changed, and the only clue to his identity is that he has since befriended the 
Hardy boys. Then the brothers uncover a shocking and horrifying piece of 
evidence. The person out to murder their father may very well be none other 
than Chet Morton-their best and most trusted friend!



"I'm going to open the screen door real fast," Frank whispered to Chet. "You 
think you can kick the front door open?"

"No sweat," Chet answered.

Frank peered back in through the window and saw Joe peek around the corner of 
the inner room. That was what he had been waiting for. He pulled the screen 
door, and it creaked loudly.

"Now!" he barked to Chet.

Chet planted his foot next to the door knob, then kicked hard. The door groaned 
and snapped open.

Frank dashed in and confronted the figure sitting in the chair.

"Frank!" Joe shouted. "It's Callie."
Frank would have been relieved to find his girlfriend, but the digital timer on 
the bomb that was ticking at her feet showed that in thirty seconds they would 
all be dead.
