Overview

Carson Drew portends his teen-age detective daughter's future adventure when he says half-jokingly, "Nancy don't let any of the party thieves ruin your evening".

The masquerade party at the Hendrick's mansion quickly turns into a mystery when Nancy and her favorite date, Ned Nickerson, spy a stranger about to climb the rose trellis to the second story. Who is this enigmatic man in the black cloak and the exotic woman in the Javenese costume? Are they members of the gang of wily thieves who sneak into parties given by wealthy people and steal jewels and art treasures? And why is the owner of the black velvet hooded mask that Ned finds in the Hendricks' garden so desperate to get it back?

To find the answers Nancy and her friend George Fayne devise a daring plan. The two girls switch identities! George soon discovers that while it is exciting to play amateur detective it can be dangerous to masquerade as Nancy Drew.

When a gang that uses parties as a cover for robberies victimizes a masquerade party Nancy is attending, the teenage detective switches identity with a friend to solve the case.

    Intriguing and Suspensful!!!

    I loved reading this book. The mystery got going right away. It was cool how Nancy kept sneaking in to all the parties to bust the robbers. Then, during one of the celebrations, Nancy ends up physically fighting and capturing one of the robbers. Towards the end when Nancy and Bess are kidnapped the climax just about blew up and I had to keep reading to see if they would escape. I highly recommend this book. You really should read it if you haven't already. Take it from the other reviews and their five star ratings.

    This book adds up to greatness and thrills!

    Amazing! Exciting! Nancy Drew has done it AGAIN. I appreciate Carolyn Kenne so much for introducing these splendid books into the world. 'The clue of the velvet mask' had to be the best. I have wrote other reviews for many other Nancy Drew books on this web-site, and I cannot decide which one I like best! If you read my other reviews, all of them say 'Great! Good!' and 'Wonderful.' This book has to be one of my favorites. BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT!!!

    Thrilling and funny.

    I think it was funny because of the way Nancy and Ned were dressed up.I think it was thrilling because people were stealing things and it kept on leading to differnt people.

    Excellent, like all the others

    I read the Nancy Drew series avidly when I was younger, but stopped when I was eleven or so. Now, I am re-discovering these wonderful books. They are quick but intriguing reads. This book is one of my favorites, for the descriptions of the costumes.
