Nancy, Bess, and George find an extremely depressing hundred-year-old guy (really!) to stalk, and go treasure-hunting for. But then Bess and George get all caught up in a family feud, and start doing things like brushing Nancy off (*gasp!*) and disobeying her orders (*horror!*). Carson Drew also is under the impression that being someone's attorney gives him the right to completely take over the lives of everyone his client lives with. I love how screwy the law is in these books.
Bonus: Nancy needs to make a dress. Hannah helps her make the dress, mainly by taking her measurements over and over again. Then Nancy rips the dress. Then Hannah helps her mend the dress... with Nancy inside it. Awkward, suggestive scenes run rampant throughout this little subplot.
( 'I want to thank you for your work which has resulted in the solution of one of the most baffling cases of counterfeiting the United States Government has ever had.' )
Nancy finds herself another defenseless young girl to
stalk help, and soon is knee-deep in secret codes, mysterious cults, and illegal dealings. Is anyone surprised? Nancy and Co. also express their true feelings about harmless cults, unusual clothing styles, and possibly the Asian race in general.
Cousins Bess Marvin and George Fayne show up to add to the crazy UST orgy- and no, unfortunately they're not as flamboyantly gay as they are in the PC games.( George reminded her that no doubt there were other men in the county with large black hats. )
( 'When we heard it was a black foreign car, we were suspicious immediately.' )
( 'There are times when I'd like to thrash the man till he begged for mercy!' )
