Shock Jock is the 106th book in the The Hardy Boys Casefiles series.
Ron Minkus was one of the hottest radio personalities around. His specialty: being a totally obnoxious, equal opportunity offender who'd make nasty jokes about anyone, anytime. In other words, he made a living making enemies. But he's not making a living anymore. The electrifying personality has been electrocuted!
The Hardys' investigation leads them to a gang of skinhead thugs known as the Bootstompers. The gang has had run-ins with Minkus before, and for Frank and Joe it quickly turns into a running battle of fists, fireballs, and firebombs. But the real trouble is beginning -- the boys are closing in on a killer with a cold heart and a deadly plan!
This book is on quite a few people's worst book lists.
