Beyond the Law is the 55th book in The Hardy Boys Casefiles series.
Scandal rocks the Bayport police force! New commissioner Mark DeCampo has suspended veteran police chief Ezra Collig, saying he has proof Collig was once a bagman in a bribery scheme. Now Collig is on the run, and when DeCampo barely survives a car bomb, the chief is accused of attempted murder!
The Hardys have had differences with Collig in the past, but they refuse to believe he's a dirty cop. The boys head to Millerton, the town where Collig began his career, and expose a 35-year-old police cover-up. But they also stir up a new case -- a case of deceit, dishonor, and danger that leads straight back to Bayport!
