True Thriller is the 100th book in the The Hardy Boys Casefiles series.
Oliver Richards writes action-adventure novels, and he wants to make Frank and Joe the stars of his next thriller. But he's unwittingly drawn them into a real-life tale of intrigue and danger. Thanks to him, the Assassins -- an infamous international gang of professional killers -- are back, and the Hardys are at the top of their hit list!
In their long and deadly war against The Assassins, the boys have always relied on the Gray Man, top operative in an ultrasecret government agency. But now he may have turned traitor, and they don't know whom to trust. One thing they know for sure: the terrorists are cold and ruthless...and their latest evil scheme could put seven million lives at risk!

- The story in True Thriller is written in a similar fashion to #100 The Secret of The Island Treasure from the Digest series. Both stories are spun off from the first volume (Dead On Target (Casefiles #1) and The Tower Treasure (original text) (Original #1)) of their respective series in terms of plot line and characters.
