Spiked! is the 58th book in the The Hardy Boys Casefiles series.
A vacation in Laguna Beach, California, together with a big-time volleyball tournament in the sun and sand, have put the Hardys in seventh heaven. The action promises to be hard and fast and fun -- so what could possibly go wrong? Nothing...until the games begin and murder takes a hand!
The Frosty Soft Drink Company is sponsoring the event to promote their new sports drink, Hi-Kick. But the contest has turned into a tournament of terror, and one competitor has already paid with his life. Frank and Joe will have to high kick their game into high gear -- before the cost of a cold drink puts someone else on ice!
