front cover


Rick and AJ Simon's mother, Cecelia, has met and fallen for Judge Hardcastle, but when the younger men are added to the mix, things get a little hot: Milt thinks the world of A.J. because he's well-dressed and well-spoken, while he thinks Rick is a lazy bum who constantly makes A.J. break the law in their profession as private eyes. Meanwhile, Mark McCormick thinks Rick is a funny, inventive guy who's got a million stories to tell, but thinks A.J. is a stuffy, prudish horse's ass who's sucking up to the judge. Tempers and more fly when these four men are forced to work together to solve a case, but it's a toss-up whether they find out whodunnit before someone gets done in! [1]
The Lone Ranger and Tonto go to San Diego on business, and become entangled with The Hardy Boys. Yep, the story is as strange as it seems. Milt and Rick don't get along, and Mark and A.J don't get along, but Milt thinks Mark could take a few lessons from A.J. and A.J. thinks Rick could learn some things from the Judge, but Rick takes Mark under his wing and they go out drinking together. Confusing, right? You got it. [2]
