Editorial Review

Nancy Drew: Danger by Design continues the popular award-winning interactive PC game series with Nancy Drew flying to Paris to investigate the strange and unexplained behavior of a top fashion designer. Sent by a nervous investor to check on Minette, a leading fashion designer whose recently strange behavior may delay her Spring Collection and potentially derail the fashion house, Nancy Drew must unlock the many inexplicable mysteries that include strange threats and unwelcome guests at Minette's place. But with unsettling rumors that date back to an unsolved, historic mystery, Nancy can easily get distracted from the task at hand.

As Nancy Drew, you must sort through a wide web of suspects to look for clues. You'll meet Minette, the famous couture designer who is acting strangely and wearing a mask for some unknown reason. She's your boss, so watch out, or else you'll blow your cover! Then there's Jing-Jing (JJ) Ling -- a perfect size 12 with a taste for mint chocolate chip cookies. It was JJ who was tricked into signing an exclusive fitting model contract for Minette, so a little revenge could go a long way to satisfy someone who deserves her just desserts. And don't forget the famous photographer, Dieter von Schwesterkrank. It's true that he once dated Minette, but the romance fizzled. And it's also true that he obsessively sear! ches for his great uncle's lost treasure. Is he trying to get revenge for his broken heart or does he know the secrets of the moulin?

Then there's Jean-Michel Traquenard, THE critical voice when it comes to fashion. A writer of nasty reviews for Glam Glam magazine, this author is unpopular and scorned as a "conceited Nichtsnutz" by some. Having the power to shape the fashion industry can corrupt and lead to some reckless behavior! Another suspect is Heather McKay, who endures the nightmare that is Minette to gain a foothold in the fashion industry. After all, the quickest way to the top is to steal trade secrets, dethrone the reigning queen, and appoint yourself as the successor.

Whether you're trying to understand what makes all these characters tick, or you're exploring the underground catacombs or abandoned metro stations for clues, you'll need to rely on their powers of observation and deductive reasoning to solve this international mystery. Can you succeed in helping Minette release her latest clothing line on time? Or will your sleuthing abroad meet an unfashionable end? Rated "E" for Everyone, Nancy Drew: Danger by Design is a exciting addition to the growing line of interactive Nancy Drew titles.
