"Nancy, unaided, seeks to find a missing will. To the surprise of many, the Topham family will inherit wealthy Josiah Crowley's fortune, instead of deserving relatives and friends who were promised inheritances. Nancy determines that a clue to a second will might be found in an old clock Mr. Crowley had owned and she seeks to find the timepiece. Her search not only tests her keen mind, but also leads her into a thrilling adventure."

The first Nancy Drew ever. I used to love these as a kid, and they are still fun to read sometimes :) like a trip to one's own youth. And also to the era when these were first written - 1930s (just like Hardy Boys). So having an amateur teen sleuth with her own convertible car, rich dad, and all the cool gadgets of that era was probably the dream of quite a few girls back then already...

"Don't ever apologize to an author for buying something in paperback, or taking it out from a library (that's what they're there for. Use your library). Don't apologize to this author for buying books second hand, or getting them from bookcrossing or borrowing a friend's copy. What's important to me is that people read the books and enjoy them, and that, at some point in there, the book was bought by someone. And that people who like things, tell other people. The most important thing is that people read... "
