About The Book

The boys track down an unusually undead suspect in this Hardy Boys Secret Files mystery.

Bayport is buzzing with excitement when a film crew sets up shop to film the latest zombie flick. Frank, Joe, and their friends are really psyched that there will be fake zombies running around town—not to mention a famous director and some of their favorite actors. They are hoping for a sighting or two, and maybe even an autograph, if they’re lucky!

But things get a little too real when one of the boys’ friends claims he saw an actual zombie in Bayport—nowhere near the shoot. Is someone just pulling a crazy prank? Or is the movie starting to take on a life of its own?

Excerpt
Lights, Camera . . . Zombies!

1 Humans for Lunch
Frank Hardy staggered across the lawn toward his brother, Joe, his arms outstretched. Frank was a zombie, and Joe was a human.

Translation: Joe was Frank’s lunch.

Joe, who was a year younger than Frank, picked up a long blue noodle from a pile of pool toys and wielded it like a sword. “You’ll never get me!” he cried out.

Frank ignored Joe’s threats and continued staggering.

“Stay back, you evil monster!” Joe shook the noodle menacingly at Frank.

Ha-ha, poor Joe. The flimsy foam tube was no match for Zombie Frank’s supernatural strength and appetite.

Nearby, Cissy Zermeño staggered toward Tico Sanchez. She was a zombie too, and Tico was her lunch.
