Nancy Drew

Books in this series

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy Drew has two tough cases to crack. A very old and valuable Fabergé egg has been stolen. Who would have the heart to snatch such a precious family heirloom from someone new in town? And if that's not enough to keep her busy, Nancy must also figure out who is running through gardens and stomping on all the zucchinis!

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy is the captain of her team in the River Heights Biking for Bucks charity road race. Unfortunately, all of the money that she and her friends raised before the race has been stolen. With two days, practically no clues, and a bike race to win, Nancy most definitely has her work cut out for her.

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy is looking for a birthday present for her father, Carson. But another mystery comes her way --- one that involves Heather Simmons, a leading candidate in the upcoming election for mayor of River Heights. Nancy and her friends are fairly certain that her daughter Leslie, musician extraordinaire, has been kidnapped. Unfortunately, nobody is saying a word about it!

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy and Ned are taking flying lessons, and they're having lots of fun. The same, however, cannot be said of Evaline Waters. A huge corporation is suing the River Heights resident for her land; they want to tear down her home and put up a warehouse. Unfortunately, documentation of the zoning law that would protect Evaline's right to keep her land is missing.

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy becomes involved in a big River Heights crime --- both on-screen and off. A producer comes to shoot a reenactment of the heist that gave the town its name, and he thinks Nancy is perfect for the part of Esther, sister of the thieving Rackham boys. Nancy accepts his offer and the cameras start rolling --- but that's when the trouble starts: food-poisoning, a broken generator, and to top it off, a lion who is supposed to star in the movie gets out of his cage and lunges towards Nancy!

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy has finally figured out who was behind all the trouble that began in LIGHTS, CAMERA... But just as soon as filming for the River Heights movie resumes, a huge fire breaks out on the set. The production is delayed --- again --- and some believe that the flick is doomed. The good news is that the fire turns up a key clue about who started it, but Nancy must continue doing double duty as an actress and a detective.

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy, Bess, George and Ned travel to Moab to relax and enjoy some hiking and biking. But these plans must be put on hold, because one of the guides has mysteriously disappeared. Sasha Starflower was one of the nicest rangers and most respected tour guides around --- so who would want to kidnap her or do her any harm? There are plenty of suspects, but not much time.

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy, Bess and George head to Corcovado Ecologica, a popular resort and preserve, to study three species of monkeys. But when they arrive there, the whole place is a mess and the monkeys are few and far between --- and the problem only worsens as the days go by. Nancy must figure out what’s going on before any more of this monkey business destroys the resort.

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy, George and Bess attend the grand opening of a new spa in town, and they're ready to be primped, buffed and polished. But then Deirdre shows up --- and if her appearance isn't enough to spoil the fun, someone starts tampering with the food and unwelcome little critters are turning up on scrub brushes. Nancy must forget about that makeover for the moment and concentrate on figuring out who wants to see the spa fail --- and why.

by Carolyn Keene

A Civil War reenactment should be fun, right? Not in our town! It feels like war fever's taken over. The tension started to build when we all chose sides. Confederate and Union sympathizers never did mix. And if that wasn't enough to heat things up, someone started to secretly dig large holes in the battlefield. Pretty odd -- and very suspicious. Is someone waging a little war of their own, and trying to cheat? And if so, the bigger question is why?

by Carolyn Keene

A mystery dinner on a riverboat sounds like fun, which is why Nancy accepts the invitation to go along with Bess, George, and George's mom. But none of them expect an actual theft to occur --- there's nothing like a good crime to stop a party. It's up to Nancy and her keen detective skills to catch "sticky fingers" before this dinner is sunk permanently.

by Carolyn Keene

Just as Nancy is gearing up to help plan the Mahoney Library's 75th anniversary celebration, the beautiful old clock in the library is stolen. Soon Nancy learns that what's inside the clock is more valuable than the clock itself --- and if she doesn't hustle, this could become two crimes for the price of one!

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy is off to San Francisco with Bess and George. At first their trip is fabulous, but something fishy is going on. An older couple keeps mysteriously popping up wherever they go. Coincidence or not? It turns out that the couple, who know Nancy's reputation, need her help with a huge problem. Before she knows it, the teen detective finds herself on yet another working vacation!

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy is sitting with Ned in a lecture and the next minute she's in a city hall meeting on how to get through the beginning of the Great Depression. And if being stuck in the 1930s isn't bad enough, someone is robbing local banks of what little money they have. Everyone is panicked about their money, so the thief could be just about anyone. Nancy knows she needs to put her worries about her own predicament aside and concentrate on locating the culprit. But when, and how, will she get home?

by Carolyn Keene

A prince from a relatively minor royal family has come to River Heights to deliver a painting to Mrs. Mahoney, a friend of the royal family. Everyone is excited about the royal visit --- that is, until the prince is arrested by federal authorities and thrown in jail. His family thinks he stole the painting! Nancy and her dad have reason to believe that the prince is innocent. But can they prove that to everyone else?

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy is all set to travel to London with her dad and Bess when Ned's Shakespeare professor asks them to do a simple favor: to take a look at his townhouse while they're there, since he can't seem to find the housekeeper and fears something is wrong. It sounds easy enough, so Nancy says yes and takes the key. Eager to cross the favor off their list, they stop by 53 Banbury Square shortly after landing. But things in the townhouse aren't quite as they should be --- and the key unlocks a Pandora's box of serious trouble.

by Carolyn Keene

George really gets into fencing, which means lots of cool --- and dangerous --- matches for Nancy and Bess to watch. But when a potentially deadly rivalry between two of the strongest fencers rears its ugly head, Nancy has to get off the bleachers and start sleuthing. Fast.

by Carolyn Keene

There's been a snake-napping at the River Heights Zoo, and all clues about the thief seem to point in the direction of Nancy Drew's good friend Charlie. But why would Charlie want to steal a snake? Meanwhile, George's younger brother Scott hasn't been acting like himself lately, but his lips are sealed about what's wrong. Do these mysteries have anything to do with each other?

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy, Bess and George are heading down to Key Largo, Florida, to enjoy some fun in the sun with Nancy's old friend, marine biologist Delia Duke. But it seems that Delia's state park is clouded over with mystery: Someone has been poaching the park's rare butterfly orchids, and their future depends on Nancy and her friends.

by Carolyn Keene

The animal shelter where Nancy volunteers burns down --- which leaves a lot of displaced orphaned animals and a big case for Nancy. She and her friends put on a concert to raise funds for rebuilding the shelter. Strange people keep joining the volunteer staff though, and someone is trying to foil their plans. Whoever it is has picked the wrong gal to mess with!

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy, Bess and George head to Brody's Junction, Vermont, to fly down the slopes. Little do they realize they're in for flying saucers! Hundreds of tourists have invaded the town to watch the purported UFO sightings, which are odd enough. Odder still are reports of townspeople being abducted and the strange clues that seem to point to little green men as the culprits. Nancy's mantra, though, is "innocent until proven guilty," and she's hoping to have a close encounter with some hard facts before the town spins out of control.

by Carolyn Keene

Hot young designer Alicia Adams is opening a boutique in her hometown of River Heights. The opening is being celebrated with a one-day discount, and the press is all over the event. When the big day comes, tons of people show up, and when the crowd presses forward, the store window is smashed, and the people are injured! Later Alicia's most expensive dress is destroyed and her store is vandalized. Nancy may not be into fashion, but this is one case she's ready to size up.

by Carolyn Keene

Floods in the low-lying towns downriver from River Heights destroy many homes and businesses, and River Heights is mobilizing to contribute to relief efforts. Nancy, Bess and George all sign on as volunteers for Helping Homes, a nonprofit that builds homes for people in need. But trouble starts when work on the new apartments is sabotaged, leaving plumbing equipment ruined and holes smashed in newly installed drywall. Nancy wonders why anyone would hinder such a worthy project, and she immediately offers to try to find and stop the culprit.

by Carolyn Keene

A movie is being filmed in River Heights, and Nancy gets cast as the lead's stand-in. But word gets out that on the director's most recent film, a stand-in was killed when a planned explosion went off prematurely, and this is the director's last chance at a comeback. It soon becomes clear that someone is trying to sabotage the movie. Will Nancy find the culprit, or will it be curtains for our heroine?

by Carolyn Keene

Nancy and Bess travel to Costa Rica with George as she prepares to participate in La Ruta de los Conquistadores, a three-day mountain-bike race. When the girls realize that someone will go to great lengths to make sure top cyclist Derek Woodhall doesn't win, leave it to Nancy Drew to get right on the case.
