Biography

Rockapazooma attack

Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details for Terror on Tour follow.

Bess played a important role in stopping the Death Brothers' attack on the Rockapazooma rock concert, which she was attending with with friends George Fayne, Nancy Drew, and her boyfriend Ned Nickerson.

Before the attack, Bess met Frank and Joe Hardy, two undercover agents who were sent to the concert by American Teens Against Crime, in anticipation of the Death Brothers threat. When Nancy Drew discovered who the Hardys were and that they were ATAC agents, Nancy, Bess, and George offered to help them. The Hardy brothers reluctantly agreed, and, in the end, it was a good thing they did.

When the Death Brothers kidnapped young Deirdre Shannon, and held her hostage, on stage, in exchange for Kijani, the lead singer of Royal We, and a refugee from a small country in Africa which the Death Brothers work for, Frank Hardy formulated a rescue plan. Bess helped in the rescue by picking the lock of the backstage control room. Once inside, Frank got George Fayne to hack into the concert's sound system and turn the speakers to a near deafening volume. The noise from the speakers was so loud it immobilized the Death Brothers, and everyone else near the stage, letting Frank, who was know wearing earplugs, disarm the Death Brothers and rescue Deirdre.[1]
