Editorial Review

This hot, latest installment of the Nancy Drew game series includes the best parts of the first four books and takes place in the same time period – welcome to 1930’s America and the Great Depression. A friend of Nancy’s asks her to visit the town of Titusville, where another friend, Emily Crandall, lives. Emily owns an inn and she's in a jam; she's low on cash and nearly bankrupt. However, she does have one hope of saving the inn: a neighbor died and left his money to her in his will. Or, did he?!

The Possible Suspects

Titusville is filled with a cast of characters. Here are some who may be responsible for the strange occurences Nancy encounters as she tries to discover who really inherited the money left behind by Josiah Crowley:

Jim Archer

Richard Topham

Emily Crandall

Jane Willoughby

Jim is a good-natured, but secretly desperate, businessman trying to make it through the end of the Depression. The bank he owns is teetering on the brink of failure. Jim has been helpful to Emily and her mom, but he’s desperate for money. How far would he go to save his bank?

Richard is a self-proclaimed expert on ESP and telekinesis and lives in the house that once belonged to Josiah Crowley. How did he inherit Josiah’s estate and money? He runs the “School for the Study and Development of Paranormal Powers,” but is his act just a hoax?

Emily runs the Lilac Inn with the help of her guardian while she mourns the recent loss of her mother. She is plagued by strange occurrences: objects on the wall move, whispers call from shadows, things mysteriously disappear and then reappear. Is Emily just stressed out or are things really amiss?

Gloria Crandall, Emily's mother, asked Jane to look after her daughter in case anything happened to her. She's doing her best to help Emily, but she doesn't know much about raising kids or running an inn.  Could Jane have a hidden agenda?
