Nancy travels to Carmel, California to find who stole the stones from a diamond necklace and replaced them with fakes, but her client is found dead at the bottom of a cliff.
I HATE sitting around, waiting for the phone to ring," George Fayne said, glaring at the telephone on Nancy Drew's bedside table.
"You hate sitting around, period," Nancy said with a laugh. "Maybe when Bess told Hannah she was going to call at three o'clock she meant California time. They're two hours behind us."
George checked her watch again. "If she doesn't call soon, we're going to lose our court time." She picked up her tennis racket and started practicing a restrained forehand in the middle of the room.
Nancy glanced at herself in the mirror - her tennis dress was blindingly white. "I wonder what's kept Bess in California," she said, tying her reddish blond hair back. "Her mom and dad came back over a week ago."
Bess Marvin, who was George's cousin and Nancy's good friend, had gone to Carmel, California, to visit friends of her parents.
Searching for missing jewels, Nancy finds the perfect setting for murder.
An urgent message from Bess draws Nancy to beautiful Carmel, California. Fading movie star Joanna Burton has accused jeweler Marcia Cheung of replacing the diamonds in her necklace with fakes. But the case of the missing stones turns even more sinister when Ms. Burton ends up on the rocks - at the bottom of a cliff!
What led the actress to such a tragic final scene? Who pushed her over the edge? For Nancy, it's a murder mystery with more twists and turns than the Pacific Coast Highway, and she knows she's in a race against time. She must find the stolen diamonds before the killer strikes again - perhaps to put her on ice!
