Plot summary

From The Back Cover[1]

Frank and Joe Swing Into Action...And One Slip Could Spell Disaster!

Some High-Wire High Jinks May Prove Hazardous To The Hardys' Health!

Chet has finally found the perfect pastime: a college for clowns. Bayport's Circus University is in session, and Chet's one of the first students in line. But Frank and Joe have no time for clowning around: they've intercepted a coded message that points to plenty of big trouble under the big top.

The greatest show on earth may turn out to be a carnival of crime. The case catapults the Hardy boys to the height of danger, and the fireworks are just beginning to fly. Someone in the circus has too much to lose and is determined to perform the trick of a lifetime: make Frank and Joe Hardy disappear! It is a great book!
