Who is the tapper?
How does he gain access to the house, despite securely locked doors and windows?
Why do the tapping sounds come in Morse code?
Is there a sinister motive behind the prowler’s actions?
While trying to learn the answers to these and other puzzling questions, Nancy finds her investigations complicated by the dishonest administrator of a will and by a thief who steals the actress’s prize-winning Persian cats.
