- "Mix hard rock with hard crime -- and danger's bound to hit the top of the charts."

When Buddy Death brings his heavy metal band to Bayport, danger takes center stage. For while hard rock fans would kill for a ticket, someone's out to kill the star of the show! The Hardys, hired to help set up the concert, soon find themselves working overtime as Buddy Death's bodyguards.
But saving Buddy's skin is not an easy job, and Frank and Joe can't afford to miss a single beat. The hot-shot rock star has more enemies than he does amplifiers -- and every piece of high-tech equipment onstage is a potential Buddy Death trap.
