This book has several good suspects. I correctly guessed one of them very early in the book, because it was so painfully obvious.
This is a very good book, and I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.
On page 83, George tells Nancy that she wrote down a license plate number and that she put the paper in her shoe because she doesn't have any pockets. But then she must have used a pen or pencil to write the number down. Where does she keep that? On a chain around her neck?
Like all of the Nancy Drew Digest books, this book is written in the past tense. Strangely, this book uses "today" and "tonight" and not as part of a spoken conversation.
From page 110:
Today's route lay along the wide lake called Lough Corrib. Terry had dropped off lunch boxes at a grassy area picnic area on the seashore.It doesn't sound right to me. I feel that it should begin with "That day's route lay..."
I love the setting. Ireland is described so vividly and in a way that is very interesting to the reader. A tiny bit of history is thrown in, enough to be interesting, but not so much as to be boring.
This book is outstanding.
Bess has been skilled with computers since #144, The E-Mail Mystery. On page 64, Bess has reached a new level. We learn that Bess is "a skilled computer hacker." Now she can hack into computers? Wow!
This is a wonderful, suspenseful book. The story is somewhat similar to the second Connie Blair book and one Nancy Drew Digest book, #84, The Joker's Revenge. Fortunately, the mystery is resolved in a different fashion. For a while, I thought that the resolution would be similar, because suspicion was cast on a certain person for no reason. I was happy to see that this mystery is indeed different from the other two books.
This book is very good.
