Once again, Nancy faces two puzzling mysteries at once!
The first concerns a valuable collection of rare books that Mrs. Horace Merriam commissioned an art dealer to sell–has he swindled her instead?
The second mystery revolves around the baffling theft of a beautiful marble statue.
To solve both mysteries, the famous young detective disguises herself and assumes a false identity.
Despite these precautions, danger stalks Nancy’s every move.
An attempted kidnapping, a nearly disastrous sailboat collision, and an encounter with a dishonest sculptor are just a few of the exciting challenges that Nancy is faced with as she gathers evidence against a clever ring of art thieves.
