Nancy helps an elderly woman whose house has been burglarized frequently and tries to stop an international ring of stamp forgers.

A gang's efforts to scare amateur detective Nancy Drew away from a case in The Sinister Omen are futile as her interest only gets stronger in a mystery that involves stamp collections from all over the world being stolen all of which included extremely rare particular stamps. She is then also hired by a wealthy woman to catch some burglars who continue to ransack her

It was my fist Nancy Drew!
And I can say: What a Mary Sue.

- She is supposed to be 19. And she is trained pilot that can manage even a hydro plane (view spoiler)
- The late teens go to spring break in Fort Lauderdale during spring break and never mention booze, come on, they were all spoild brats they would be promoting wild parties, girls gone wild.

- The ending more ludicrous of a (view spoiler)

- She does

I love Nancy Drew, but I especially want to get my hands on this book since it takes place basically where I grew up.
