The Nancy Drew book series definitely returns to its standard of greatness with this one. My only complaint was that she was attempting to solve too many mysteries at the same time, and that definitely keeps the reader from getting fully engrossed in the story.

Nancy Drew and her friends stay in River Heights to solve the mystery in The Swami's Ring. Nancy wants to help an amnesiac patient remember who he is, plus a harpist in town wants Nancy's help looking for her sister. Of course, the two have a connection. Also, Ned is getting tired of all the mysteries Nancy is always running off to solve.

This one was better than some of the other later Nancy Drew mysteries.

I loved this book, but you can't even begin to compare it to the first books in the series.

My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.

Her mystery begins when her former schoolmate Lisa Scotti, who was now a nurse asked her if she could go over to Rosemont Hospital to help solve a mystery. The mystery is about a young man who was just brought into the emergency with bad bruises. He has amnesia- he can't remember who he is, where he has been or where he comes from and there her mystery begins

It had everything that a mystery book needed. I love to read so it took me to a different like always. I thought it was very good. It had kidnapping and a scracy abodoned house. At the end everything was ok.

it was my first time reading nancy drew series. i really like the illustration :D but i'm not really into the story, (perhaps) because it still my first time so i will read it again (other title). I MUST! of course, since it's legend (still in my opinion ;p )
My original school reading record review

This book was so good that I read it in one day after another book, So when I had finished reading this book I got half way through the next story in the Series.

...and another blast from the past. I have Nancy Drew to thank for my lifelong love of detective/crime fiction!

I've read a lot of the Nancy Drew books more than once but remember only bits and pieces. I remember this one just enough to feel good to give it three stars.
