Frank and Joe spot a submarine off the coast of Maine. A man from the area appears to have been taken hostage by this vessel. In the meantime, Fenton Hardy is heading to Mexico to investigate an international criminal. Joe, Frank, and their friend go along, knowing that a similar submarine has been spotted off Mexican waters. They discover several area kidnappings. There's probably too much coincidence and too much access to the inner workings of crimes for the series to really be believable, but it's still a fun and adventure-filled read. I think that even today, upper elementary and younger middle school readers will find much to enjoy, even if it was written before the age of cell phones which would certainly add an entirely different twist on this read.
