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.

Nancy enslaves neighborhood children to help her rescue a poor, defenseless mailman from certain financial harm.
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.

Nancy and Co. admire a beautiful mansion- five seconds later, it blows up. Bess seriously needs to learn how to control her heat vision. Also, Ned Nickerson- Nancy Drew's very own stalker extraordinaire- joins in on the fun.

Nancy adds 'The Secret Service' to her list of people totally under her control. Also, she single-handedly solves "one of the most baffling cases of counterfeiting the United States Government has ever had". Anyone else sensing a bit of wish fulfillment here?

'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. 

I suppose they dance when the dew is on the grass and such nonsense! )

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. )

 Nancy's evil twin runs amok (as if one of them wasn't bad enough!) as our young sleuth descends into paranoia, convinced that anyone caught knowing obscure facts about lilacs must be plotting her demise.

'John, do you know what 'blue pipes' are?' )

Nancy ruthlessly stalks this book's Character in Need, a poor, defensless orphan, and Evil Road Signs are always hindering our characters by warning them of Impending Doom. This makes Nancy PMS a lot. 

'When we heard it was a black foreign car, we were suspicious immediately.' )

In which Nancy's father is kidnapped and MIA for half the book, yet our brave heroine somehow finds the time to go merrily gallivanting about  the countryside, ghosthunting. 

'There are times when I'd like to thrash the man till he begged for mercy!' )

Nancy pokes her nose into other people's business for the first of many times. And this book really has nothing to do with the computer game. Her Interactive lied to us. 

The next instant, to Nancy's right, a ball of fire rocketed down from the sky. )
