A nice mystery. I like how the adults end up being helpful in the end. ( )

Nancy is trying to see in this book what a group of criminals want and she will not only find out, she will discover the truth that has been hidden for 50 years. I love this book because it's full of adventure and mystery.

I love Nancy Drew books because of the great context, the setting and the theme, and overall the suspenseful mystery. I recommend this book because of the great mystery that is unexpected.

I give this book 4 stars because even though it was good, I've read better Nancy Drew books such as the Bungalow Mystery.

I read two different editions of this book. They are completely different stories and different mysteries to solve. The newer edition has much more action and jumps immediately into the suspense. The facsimile edition is slower paced and takes a little longer to build to the mystery. I enjoyed both. I wonder which I read as a child. I was reading used copies from Acres of Books in Long Beach, Ca. ( )
