Overview

Nancy and her friends, George and Bess, are returning from a country carnival when they witness the explosion and burning of a beautiful country mansion. Fearing its occupants may be trapped in the blazing building, they rush to the rescue - and unexpectedly fund themselves confronted with a mystery that seems to be insoluble. The first clue, an anonymous diary, includes not only indecipherable handwriting, but puzzling technical drawings and chemical formulas as well. Who dropped the diary near the burning house? Was it the gaunt stranger Nancy glimpsed running away from the flaming structure? What was he doing there? And does he know the whereabouts of Felix Raybolt, an unscrupulous dealer in patents, who has not been seen since his home burned? Or did Raybolt die in the fire? When evidence mounts against Joe Swenson, who was swindled by "Foxy Felix", our young detective makes the desperate effort to exonerate the inventor of the suspicion of arson because of his dear five-year-old daughter.

In this book, Nancy and friends are driving home from a carnival when a big fire suddenly appears on a mansion belonging to the Raybolts', who everyone says are horrible business men. His nickname is Foxy Felix. Nancy also meets her boyfriend from Emerson College, Ned Nickerson in this book. Ned also helps Nancy to solve a mystery about a diary mostly written in French! I reccommend this book very highly!

This book is so great that even 5 stars isn't enough! Absolutely the best books out there are the ORIGINAL Nancy Drew books. This particular book in the series is one of my favorites. I like this one mostly because this is the book where Nancy meets Ned. It is also a great storyline, plot and of course, it is a great mystery. But then again-all of the Nancy Drew books are like that. If you haven't read this book or any of the Nancy Drew books, you really need to. If you haven't read any, I suggest that you start with the first book in the series, The Secret of the Old Clock.

If you want to get started reading Nancy Drew, this book would be the place. Of all the ND series, I think I enjoyed this one the most. While Nancy and her friends' activities and dialogue seem a bit dated (don't forget most of these stories were written long before you were born)Nancy is a wholesome character who is constantly busy observing her environment and sticking her nose into places it may not belong. Of course, this kind of behavior is what makes a story interesting. This book deals with arson, stealing patents, and helping an innocence victim find justice.

Evidence are all against Joe Swenson, an inventor who was cheated by 'Foxy Felix'. Prompted by the affection for Mrs Swenson's five-year-old daughter,Honey, the young detective makes a desperate effort to exonerate the inventor of the suspicion of arson.This willbe the most exciting mystery i had ever read!!!!!1
