This book was really good. Nancy is called to visit Hannah's friend, a retired actress, to find out what the mysterious tapping sounds coming from the attic and the basement are. While she's there, she encounters another mystery involving the actress's prized cats. They are being stolen. What are the mysterious tapping sounds and why do they seem to be in morse code? who is making them and why? Is it the same person who is stealing the cats and making the tapping? Find out when you read the book..it's worth buying!
