The Shore Road Mystery






The Shore Road Mystery

The Hardy boys, Frank and Joe, were taking a casual drive down Shore Road when they heard
a report about a stolen car. Frank and Joe raced towards the scene and actually saw the
stolen car. Suddenly, a big red produce truck came right into the middle of the road.
The boys had no choice but to slam on their breaks. They ended up crashing into a fence
and were dazed but uninjured. The driver came out of the truck and apologized.
"Something seems fishy about that guy." Said Frank. They both returned home that night
trying not to let their mother see their cuts and bruises.


The next morning a friend of the Hardys , Jack Dodd, called and told the Hardys to come
quickly. The police were looking for a suspect who had stolen a car. The police thought
they found their man. They found Jack Dodd's fishing rod in the trunk of one of the
stolen cars. Jack insisted that he had not put it there and that he was being framed.
The cops handcuffed Jack and his father and took them down to headquarters. Later that
night Chief Colling came to the Hardy's home telling them that the Dodds had taken off in
their station wagon. The Hardys had known the Dodds for a very long time and it just
didn't seen like them to break the law.


The Hardys went back into their secret fort in the garage to think things through. They
asked themselves if anyone had ever held a grudge against the Dodds. Then they thought of
Ray Slagel. He was the man that the Dodds hired but had done such a poor job with their
farming equipment that they had to fire him. They decided to check out the area where
most of the cars were being stolen… Shore Road. They stumbled upon a local drifter, a
friend of the Hardys, named Scratch. Scratch said that he had seen a man that looked like
the photo of Slagel that they showed him. He was pulling out of the woods with a nice
looking car. That night they returned and were thinking of better ways to check the area.
Frank thought of calling Larry Dillion a pilot and long time friend of the Hardys. He
agreed with their thoughts so far on the case and said he'd pick them up at eight. Their
friend Chet Morton was riding with them. Once they were in the air about twenty minutes
they started to hear gun shots. Finally they figured out the shots were being fired at
them! After a long and exciting day they finally arrived home and went to bed. In the
middle of the night they heard over their police radios that another car was being stolen
and was heading up Shore Road. The Hardys decided to take chase because they were far
enough ahead of Shore Road to catch up to the car. Sure enough, they saw the tan sedan
buzzing along the road with no cops in sight. What puzzled the Hardys is that the car

Nevertheless sometimes we cannot be sure about an event because although there is enough evidence, our minds cannot be persuaded. An example to justify that is the existence of the Loch Ness monster, or as it is widely known “Nessie”. Nessie’s story

I was able to locate The Brood and Videodrome. The main reason I chose Cronenberg for my director had to do with his style. His mov

Only one man, Edgar Allen Poe, crossed the threshold between the real world and the dark and dreary habitat of his mind. Unlike the masses, Poe disregarded the French revolutionary philosophy, humanitarianism, reform, the new interpretation of nature, and exploration of the past. He worked on exploiting the pur

Even with all this wetlands still face mass destruction, much like the rain for
