Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
"All aboard!" the train conductor shouted. "Chicago to New York City - and all stops in between!"

Nancy Drew and her father, Carson, stepped up their pace as Carson pushed a trolley laden with luggage along the crowded platform of the cavernous station. Nancy's best friends, George Fayne and Bess Marvin, hurried to keep up.

"Will we make it?" Bess asked Nancy as the train whistle shrilled through the humid air.

"I think so, Bess," Nancy said, "though I can't predict whether all four of your suitcases will get on before the doors close."

"Don't say that!" Bess moaned. "I need them. We'll be in New York a whole week, and the party that Delphinia's planning sounds awesome."

"This is all I brought," George declared as she stepped up to her friends. She patted the straps of a large backpack slung over her shoulders.

"Don't tell me your dress for Delphinia's big dinner event is crumpled up in there," Bess said, looking horrified.

Publisher Description:
A cunning thief is desperate to wreck the opening of a historic landmark - and Nancy is his target!

On Gramercy Park in New York City, the magnificent Van Hoogstraten mansion with its priceless collection of glass birds is about to open to the public. Nancy, Bess, and George are invited, but a series of sinister events puts everything in chaos. When the centerpiece of the collection, a beautiful crystal bird, is stolen, Nancy gets on the case.

From family members with motives to keep the house, to an antiques dealer with a personal grudge, suspects abound. And when Nancy goes to the family's abandoned camp in the Adirondack forest, she zeroes in on the truth. In a violent nighttime thunderstorm on a solitary lake, Nancy confronts the culprit. The case is solved - if she can get to shore alive!
