in the 1930's with a specific reimagining in mind. Now he's getting to do that in Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie. Del Col's idea is a bit more hard-boiled than the original series of novels. Frank and Joe Hardy are teen aged brothers in the small resort town of Bayport when they are accused of killing their detective father.
