    A reviewer

    This book is awsome!! The ending is spectatular and suprising. Carol Whipple is such a lively charcter, I can almost reach out and touch her. Asa Sidney is unstoppable, although tragedy strikes in the middle of the adventure. I highly recommend this book!

    This book is NOT the original 1933 edition as advertised. I fee

    This book is NOT the original 1933 edition as advertised. I feel that I have been duped. I was hoping to find a copy of the original edition which I read repeatedly as a child and this edition has been updated. To advertise it as original is pure fraud. Frankly, I would like to have my money back.

    If you like cliff-hanging suspense, read this! In some part of the book, it looked like it could end. But it didn't! A must read!!!!!!!!!!

    What?

    I love Nancy Drew, but this book was pretty boring, and not that exciting. It was mostly about the law.
