The "D" in Detective

The book, The Clue in the Crossword Cipher, is one of the best books I've read. It is full of action,adventure,and some thinking to do at some parts.One scary but cool part was when the character Nancy Drew is on a plane and the door next to her just breaks open! The characters all had cool and exciting moments and bad ones. I recommend this book to all kids and readers who like action,adventure,and detective work.

Truly Awesome Nancy Drew Mystery

I have only read three of the Nancy Drew books from cover-to-cover ("The Secret of the Old Clock", "The Clue in the Crossword Cipher", "The Sign of the Twisted Candles", and have recently started "The Mystery at the Moss-Covered Mansion".) But, even though they're all excellent, I honestly have to say that "The Clue in the Crossword Cipher" was the best. The books always keeps you thinking at the end of each chapter; what might happen next and how Nancy will solve the mystery. In "The Clue in the Crossword Cipher", Nancy meets a young girl from Peru, about her same age, named Carla Ponce. Carla asks Nancy to solve her "monkey mystery" (which I will not give away) and along with Nancy's best friends, Bess Marvin and George Fayne, the four of them set out to solve the mystery. They explore South America and go to places like the Argentine, Cuzco, Peru, and lastly, the Nascan Lines, a desert in South America. I recommend you read this amazing book and all the others in the Nancy Drew series, too.


This book is great. Nancy goes to Mexico to help a girl find out what a strange message in a crossword cipher means. All Nancy Drew books are great, and I have not read them all, but I am going to. This book deserves more than five stars. The price is great too. I highly encourage you to buy this book!

Nancy Drew,best detective.

All Caroline Keene's books about Nancy Drew are excellent.They have a big influence on a person's mind,makes you think more clearly and be safer.I have read Nancy Drew since the age of 8.I am now 14 and still love it.I hope Nancy Drew will be here for a long time to come. Any readers can e-mail me.
