Frank and Joe travel with their detective father, Fenton Hardy, to a town two hours from Bayport to break up a truck hijacking ring and recover two stolen swords for wealthy shipping magnate Arthur Barker.

After their fencing instructor Ettore Russo tells them about a family sword, the championship saber Adalante, the Hardy Boys go to California to search for the sword's missing half.
