The real mystery Nancy Drew has solved is the mystery of aging and she never even takes credit for it. In the first Nancy Drew mystery, The Secret of the Old Clock, on page one we read “Nancy Drew, an attractive girl of eighteen, was driving home along a country road in her new, dark-blue convertible.” When we get to mystery number 64, Captive Witness, we see on page two “As he had so often done, Carson Drew was calling on the detective skills of his eighteen-year old daughter on behalf of one o ...more
Nancy is on a tour of Europe and discovers that their leader is on a secret mission to help 10 refugee children. I loved it but, I am basis, I love all the Nancy Drew Books!

I believe this is the last book in the series and its the perfect book for people who love mysteries, especially spy mysteries.

Nancy Drew, she of the titian hair and mad judo skills, is busy showing rude men that it's way better to be fair, good, and kind to others. Having good connections, limitless wealth and stunning looks helps, too.

Reading this old clunker and designing a book report assignment for it gave me nostalgic goose bumps for my earliest days of reading, going through these and the Hardy boys books at my teachers prompting. I'm excited to share Nancy to new audiences here in China: my 10th grade English c
this one was a little slower for me to read but still great mystery. the more you read the more complicated it gets
These hold up remarkably well. I really enjoyed coming back to them.
I give this book a three out of five stars.Nancy was on a student tour in Europe when she finds that her leader is ona mission to reguee ten children from an iron curtsin country. However before she completes her mission her father faces her with a mission to find the missing entry for a foreign flim festival. Nancy finds herself in danger when she discovers a message in a fellow classmates wheelchair. To me this book was a chessy, spy book. Nancy kept making stupid mistakes and you found yourse ...more

I LOVED reading Nancy Drew books growing up and wrote that this was my favorite in 2nd grade. Perhaps because it was my first REAL chapter book with no pictures and I felt so grown up...and I really liked Nancy's Dress on the cover. :o)
Best. Cover. Ever! Intricate, well paced. Actual brains required
Nancy sure keeps everyone on their toes in this book. I couldn't guess the end, and at some point you think the good guys are the bad guys.

This is ( I think) Nancy's best adventure. or at least my favorite! Her wonderful plan and a twist!
This book was one of the Nancy Drew books that intrigued me. I'm not sure why, but it did.
i don't really remember this book because I have read all 40 of them twice...

“Strauss! Oh yes, he was so-so. He wrote pretty music- The Blue Danube and Tales from the Vienna Woods. But what is that compared to Mozart?'

Suddenly, Bess and George spotted Nancy coming towards them. 'Nancy!' the cousins chimed simultaneously and raced toward her.

'I see our bus driver is still at it.' Nancy grinned.

'All the way from Salzburg." George groaned.

'Did he run off the road again?'

'Not once but many times,' Bess said. 'It was awful. Once he got so angry because someone compared Beethoven to Mozart that he actually stopped the bus, ran outside, and shouted into the valley, Beethoven is a bore. Mozart is sublime. Over and over. The professor had to go out and drag him back to the bus.”
