Well so far Nancy has gotten herself into another mystery called The Clue Of The Black Keys. It is very inertesrting and she is constatntly putting herself into dangerous situations like trying to fend off a dangerously large intruders all by herself and chasing suspects much larger than herself. She receives a phone call from Terri Scott, a young archeologist who has recently been to Mexico on a dig with three other archeologists. They made some interesting discoveries like the black keys and a stone tablet with strange markings on it. I really enjoyed this book but not as much as some of the other books that these authors have written. Because I have done some research and the name Carolyne Keene is a name used by both male and female authors.

I read this book and i felt that it was not like the other wondeful books the Carolyn has written. This book was very disappointing because some points she talked about were not used during nancy's detective work. but all through out it was okay!!!

This Nancy Drew book of the yellow series I recommend, but it wasn't as exciting as some of the yellow ND books I've read. It was still good, and much better than most other mystery series books I've read.
