A cool million in cash can raise temperatures in even the hottest towns, and no city of earth sizzles like Las Vegas, Nevada. The Hardys have come to the Camelot Casino so Frank can compete in the National Computer Chess Championship. But before the first move is made, the boys find themselves pawns in a chilling kidnapping caper.
The daughter of a ruthless local businessman is the victim, and Frank and Joe are prime suspects. The only way to clear their name is find the girl and grab her abductors. But the kidnappers are masters of the game. The Hardys must watch their step and make every move count -- or they may end up walking into a deadly desert trap!
