Moment of Truth is the 109th book in the The Hardy Boys Casefiles series.
Frank and Joe's spring vacation is turning out to be anything but a day the beach. Invited by their new friend, Rosa Galvan, to watch her brother Rigo's bullfighting match, they witness an awesome spectacle. Following his brilliant victory over the bull, a helicopter descends from the sky and plucks Rigo out of the ring!
Rigo's family has received a demand for a ransom, and unless it is paid, the kidnappers vow to kill him. Rigo's uncle is a powerful man with powerful enemies, and it's up to the Hardys to walk into the ring of danger, stand tall...and bring them down. Their fate, as well as Rigo's, will be determined in one blistering moment of sun, sand, and blood!
