Publisher's Summary

Nancy and her friends witness an explosion and the burning of a beautiful country mansion. Fearing its occupants may be trapped in the blazing building, they rush to the rescue, and unexpectedly find themselves confronted with a mystery that seems insoluble. The first clue is an anonymous diary, its entries in a handwriting difficult to decipher. Who dropped the diary? Was it the stranger Nancy saw running away from the fire? What was he doing there? Finding out how Nancy discovers the answers to these questions makes for another exciting Nancy Drew mystery.

Laura Linney Deserves an Award

The Nancy Drew series is not "The Hunger Games," and many young girls today will find it pretty mundane and unexciting. The authors who were Carolyn Keene in their day do not give us great literature here.

That said, I recommend the Nancy Drew books narrated by Laura Linney. She brings an uncritical freshness and enthusiasm to the old chestnuts! It would be great for a mother or grandmother who was a fan to share this listen with a daughter or granddaughter.

They also make for great before-bed listening, and I mean that in the best way. Forget your cynicism and the problems of the modern world and curl up with Nancy and Laura.

Still my favorite...

These audio books have been a lifesaver while recovering from a concussion, because I can't read. Laura Linney is the best of the ND narrators... Wish she would do the whole series.

The narrator in this story, was extremely good. The best part was, when every situation, that causes a moment of intrigue or suspense, adds another complex to the next episode and onward. Nancy Drew is the best!
