9780448095073: The Clue in the Diary

Nancy and her friends, George and Bess, are returning from a country carnival when they witness the explosion and burning of a beautiful country mansion. Fearing its occupants may be trapped in the blazing building, they rush to the rescue - and unexpectedly fund themselves confronted with a mystery that seems to be insoluble. The first clue, an anonymous diary, includes not only indecipherable handwriting, but puzzling technical drawings and chemical formulas as well. Who dropped the diary near the burning house? Was it the gaunt stranger Nancy glimpsed running away from the flaming structure? What was he doing there? And does he know the whereabouts of Felix Raybolt, an unscrupulous dealer in patents, who has not been seen since his home burned? Or did Raybolt die in the fire? When evidence mounts against Joe Swenson, who was swindled by "Foxy Felix", our young detective makes the desperate effort to exonerate the inventor of the suspicion of arson because of his dear five-year-old daughter.

About the Author:

Carolyn Keene is a pen name used by a variety of authors for the classic Nancy Drew Mystery series. The first author to use the pseudonym was Mildred Wirt Benson, who wrote 23 of the original 30 books. Other writers who have adapted the "Carolyn Keene" moniker include Leslie McFarlane, James Duncan Lawrence, Walter Karig, and Nancy Axelrod.

From AudioFile:

Nancy is approaching a house when, suddenly, it explodes and erupts in flames. Finding a diary at the scene, she follows its lead to solve a missing-person case that involves a swindler. Laura Linney has a matronly voice, expressive and sufficient of itself. The music and sound effects added for emphasis at times come close to overwhelming her fine performance. Still, Drew devotees should not be disappointed by this production. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
