A Review Of the book The Clue in the Crumbling Wall written by Carolyn Keene First it's stolen rose bushes, then a missing person, all these seemingly unrelated events all end up in one big mess that has Nancy racking her brain around. Where is Florianna? Why did she quit her job? This is a mystery that needs to be reviewed from all angles. Nancy drew is an amateur detective and her father, Carson Drew, is a famous lawyer. She lives in River Heights, but some of her detective work takes her to Heath Castle, Heath factory, and even the missing person's town. Nancy is funny, caring, smart, understanding, bold, and brave. Her hair is golden blond and she has two close girlfriends, George Fayne and Bess Marvin. She has a boyfriend named Ned Nickerson. To start the mystery, Nancy learns a girl's aunt has been missing for ten years. A woman then becomes an imposter and almost fools her own sister, but not Nancy! Nancy and a police lieutenant conduct a search and rescue mission in an old castle. Nancy also uncovers a fortune. I love this book because mystery and adventure are my type of story. I've been reading Nancy Drew mysteries since third grade. This book is pure adventure so you can't put it down. Once you think you found the culprit, suspicion is thrown on someone else. I hope you read The Clue in the Crumbling Wall.

I think you should read this book, Nancy Drew and the Clue of the Crumbling Wall. The author of this book is Caroline Keene. I rated this book 4.5 stars out of 5. If you like mystery and the outdoors you should read this book, even if you don¿t like those two things you of the should still read this book. It is very realistic. Nancy Drew and the Clue in the Crumbling Wall is about Nancy, who is asked to find a professional dancer, Julianna, who disappeared many years before. Clues lead to a huge estate which Julianna is to inherit if she can claim it in time. Danger lurks in a castle tower and throughout the vine-tangled grounds of the estate. Will Nancy find Julianna in time? Read this great book to find out!

I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting and had be at the very edge of my seat! I think mystery books should #1 Keep you in suspense, #2 Shouldn't have too much romance in them, and # 3 They should have someone who is brave and thinks with a clear mind be the detective. This is what the Nancy drew books have. They keep you in suspense and all of the other REALLY good stuff! Anyhow if you love mysteries this is the book for you! So go and read it!
