There's a major rift between Bess and George in this story as Bess thinks that George has lost a locket that meant a lot to Bess. Nancy wants to find out what happened but it's hard to do that when her two best friends are feuding.

Nancy does her usual thing by making a list of suspects who could have taken the locket on purpose. What happens, though, when no one knows about the locket outside the group and no one sees the locket outside the group?

Initial Thoughts: Definitely a book for younger readers. Simple plot with clear clues. Assumes prior knowledge of Nancy Drew. Full review to come.
