The House on the Cliff

Franklin W. Dixon


On holiday with friends, the Hardy boys check out the local haunted house. Deterred by screams and the dilapidated house, the group turn towards home. However, a nearly-fatal motor boat chase in the nearby bay causes the Hardy boys to wonder: is the house really haunted, or is there foul play afoot?

This is the second book of the Hardy boys series, first published in 1927. It was rewritten in 1959; this Standard Ebook contains the original 1927 text.
