A routine case involving threats made against the owner of an import/export chain becomes a nightmare when Nancy’s father is kidnapped.
In Seattle to investigate the threats, Carson Drew suggests Nancy look up an old friend, Alana Steele. But Alana has no time for a friendly visit — a priceless Eskimo sculpture, which holds the key to a cache of hidden art treasure, has been stolen and Alana is the prime suspect.
When Nancy gets a phone call demanding Alana in exchange for her father, she knows she’s dealing with ruthless criminals who will stop at nothing to get what they want. Nancy must use all her detective skills to unlock the secret that will save her father’s life.
