    A Nancy Drew Like No Other

    This is a rare Nancy Drew book- one that you just read for a little while and then you're hooked. Nancy goes to a museum to see a spider sapphire, which is reputed to be stolen. The story gets a little tangled from there on, but the knots untie beautifully. Not only is she asked to solve the mystery of the spider sapphire, but a beautiful African singer asks Nancy to find her missing brother while Nancy is on safari in Africa. The two mysteries come to a climax and, surprisingly enough, they are realted. Every time I read this book I search through my N.D.B.'s for another like it, but such is impossible.There never was, and never will be, another Nancy Drew book like this one.
