The Clue in the Embers is Volume 35 in the original The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories published by Grosset & Dunlap.

This book was written for the Stratemeyer Syndicate by John Almquist in 1955.[1] Between 1959 and 1973 the first 38 volumes of this series were systematically revised as part of a project directed by Harriet Adams, Edward Stratemeyer's daughter.[2] The original version of this book was shortened in 1972 by Priscilla Baker-Carr[1] resulting in two slightly different stories sharing the same title.

Plot summary[edit]

In solving the mystery of two medallions missing from an inherited curio collection, the Hardys wind up in a desolate area of Guatemala at the mercy of a dangerous gang of thugs plotting to steal a national treasure. The area is supposedly cursed, as some locals warn the Hardys not to visit the area. However, other men are looking for the treasure as well.
