Publisher's Summary

"Blue bells will be singing horses!" This strange message, attached to the leg of a wounded homing pigeon, involves Nancy Drew in a dangerous mission. Somewhere an elderly woman is being held prisoner in a mansion. Nancy is determined to find and free Mrs Eldridge. While working on the case, the young detective's close friend, Helen Archer, begs her to solve a weird mystery. Helen's grandparents, the Cornings, are frightened by a sinister wheel of blue fire that appears after dark in the woods outside their home at lonely Sylvan Lake.
When Nancy discovers the significance of the eerie signal, she also learns that her two mysteries are connected. How the clever young detective fathoms the meaning of the strange message, how she locates the stronghold of a ruthless ring of swindlers and how she rescues the gang's victims makes absorbing and exciting reading.

Not Laura Linney

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

We were so accustomed to Laura Linney's narration that this new girl threw us off. Laura Linney made Nancy Drew sound sophisticated and smart. The new reader sounds like Ruby from Max and Ruby. We like Ruby's voice but not for Nancy Drew. It would have been allright had we started the series with this one.

The actual story is probably one of the best Nancy Drews

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Not our favorite narrator for this piece.

This is a very good Nancy Drew mystery story, but I have to say, the narrator, Danica Reese, just ruined it for me. She tried to give each character a different voice and it just made it hard to listen to because after a while, she would sometimes get confused with character voices or else I'd forget whose voice was whose. It was just distracting. And her tone of voice is not that convincing or engaging. It's a bit monotonous. Also, there is no background music to help engage the excitement of certain highlights in the story. It was very disappointing. I found myself wanting the story to be over. I'd much rather read the book than listen to this narrator.
