Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nancy, along with Bess and George, find the wreck of an old yacht with a safe inside full of jewelry worth a small fortune. Cousins of the Druthers, who are clients of Nancy's dad Carson Drew, owned the yacht. Their will leaves everything to Mr. Druthers, specifically excluding his spouse, (whom the cousins hated), but no one's seen him for ten years and the rumor is that Mrs. Druthers murdered him! Things take a surprising turn when suddenly Mr. Druthers reappears! But then Mrs. Druthers disappears! Join Nancy Drew as she solves the mystery of the fake heir!  Ages 8 to 12.

About the Author

Stefan Petrucha, script

Stefan Petrucha's been writing comics and novels for - whoa! A really, really long time. A lot of his stuff tends to be pretty scary, like Topp's X-Files comic, or his graphic novel, Kolchak: The Devil in the Details (which was nominated for a Stoker award in 2003!), but then again he's also written over 150 Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck comics for Egmont Publishing in Denmark. He's also signed a four book deal with Penguin's new teen imprint, Razorbill, to revive his incredibly cool comic creation, Squalor, in novel form. He lives in Westchester County, NY with his two daughters, Maia and Margo (both of whom he hopes will be reading these Nancy Drew graphic novels), and his wife and fellow writer, Sarah.

Sho (Sei) Murase, Illustration

Sho is half Japanese and half Korean but her first language is Spanish because she grew up in Spain. She moved from Europe to Vancouver and from Vancouver to Maverix Studios in California, where she works in animation and draws comics that won't leave her enough time to sleep. She is the author of "Sei, Death and Legend" published by Image Comics and is currently also working on her own graphic novel series "ME2" for Tokyopop.
