Helen's Aunt Rosemary has been living with her mother at the old family mansion, and they have noticed many strange things.

Just as soon as she hangs up the phone, a strange man visits Nancy's house to warn her and her father that they are in danger because of a case he is working on buying property for a railroad company. This warning leads Nancy and  her father Carson to search for the missing Willie Wharton, a landowner, who can prove he signed away his land to the railroad and save the railroad from a lawsuit. Will Nancy be able to find the missing landowner and discover how these mysteries are related?

I love Nancy Drew. She's such a good role model for young kids and these stories are so easy to fly through. I would recommend them. This story in particular had really good pacing and the storyline was engaging. 5 out of 5 stars. Read full review
