Nancy and her friends Bess and George, on their way home from a carnival, discuss a financially struggling Swedish immigrant, Mrs. Swenson, and her daughter, whom the girls have just helped to enjoy the carnival attractions by being their hosts for the evening. As they are driving, a luxurious roadside estate bursts into flames. The girls park the car and make sure that no one is trapped inside. In doing so, Nancy sees someone fleeing the property, and discovers an anonymous Swedish diary on the ground. She picks up this clue, and as firefighters and gawkers arrive on the scene, she notices an attractive young man moving her car away from the flying embers. At first suspicious of Ned Nickerson, Nancy warms to him when he helps her out of a jam. Ned proves to be a good friend, and is a perennial admirer of Nancy's from then on. Meanwhile, Mrs. Swenson's husband is missing, and she identifies his diary as the one picked up at the fire. To top it all off, the owner of the burned house, Felix Raybolt, is missing, and his wife claims Joe Swenson has murdered her husband. Raybolt, it turns out, swindles inventors like Swenson out of their patents and copyrights, and used one such invention to start the fire.

About the Author:

Carolyn Keene is a pen name used by a variety of authors for the classic Nancy Drew Mystery series.

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
