In the second installment of the Glen & Tyler series, the guys find out what happens when you inherit a Scottish castle, tussle with international crime gangs and host formal balls. Yes, balls — with dancing and everything!
In typical Hardy Boys–er, Glen & Tyler fashion, there are secret passages, irascible old men, caves, missing treasure, fine liquor and kilts. Ok, the kilts thing is new — but believe me, you’ll like ‘em. Although there isn’t much hockey this time around, there is shinty*. There’s also some romantic anniversary thing, but really, stay for the shinty.
Tyler and Glen are back!
This time they’re hitting the road for Scotland where Tyler has an inherited castle and lands under the management of an evil jerk. Of course there’s more than just that tomfoolery afoot, with all manner of secrets, secret passages, bad guys, thieves, killers, and mercenaries about.
Glen and Tyler also head to Saint Andrews so Glen can finish his dissertation while Tyler is determined to solve another mystery, oh…and the two are nearly killed at least a couple of times.
While there’s no shortage of action, adventure, and mystery it does lack a lot of the humor and is just plain missing the same…je nais se quoi of the first novel.
But I do love how much these two complement other (God help the world if Glen dies. Just sayin’.), and the way they’re growing as a couple. It also ends with Tyler dropping a pretty big bombshell on Glen (grr cliffhanger!), so I guess I’m going to have to grab the third book to find out what’s going to happen to the boys.
