Frank and Joe Hardy realize that they have another case in their hands, when they find the first person of the Googler gang or the Evil Eye. One of the gang dropped a glass eye and that is how the Hardies got their lead on the case of the evil eye ball. There is man called Malcolm Izmir, who owns Izmir Motors. Izmir is in the gang too. Actually he is the gang leader. Malcolm is his first name. Mal in Spanish means bad or evil. And the first letter of Izmir is I or eye. So that is where the evil eye comes from. Chet Morton, the Hardies trusty friend, helped too. He works at health farm, and that is the hide out of the Googler gang. ( )

This one had humor and thrills. You can easily overlook the standard items ex: Chet's involvment by the changes in the story path. I enjoyed it very much. ( )
