Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie by Anthony Del Col

Years ago I read all the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys I could find.  When I saw this graphic novel available, I had to sample it!

Dynamite Publication and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published November 28th.

The characters are older in this story and they have moved up to the new technology everyone uses now.  The story begins with the boys being questioned about the death of their father; they are being accused of murder!

This is a much more mature case for Nancy and the boys.  The boys have conflict between themselves because of their different personalities but they try to work together to find their father's killer.  He's accused of being corrupt and they don't believe he could have been but it's hard to disprove.

There's more than one death, they get in trouble and find themselves in danger every other page, and the answer seems to be elusive.  Even Nancy's father gets shot!

At the end, they have their father's killer but he was working for a syndicate...  Now they'll be after them in the next book.
