More About the Author

Carolyn Keene and Franklin W. Dixon are the pseudonyms under which many ghostwriters penned the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys series, respectively. Both series were created by Edward Stratemeyer, founder of the Stratemeyer Syndicate book packaging firm, in the late 1920s and early 1930s.

Stratemeyer's daughter, Harriet, and syndicate writer Mildred Wirt Benson were the two people primarily responsible for bringing the iconic character of Nancy Drew to life in the minds and hearts of millions of readers around the world.

Im a sucker for mystery books. This is one of the best ones I've read. I love how it makes you wonder after each chapter you read. Then it makes you want to read more. Nancy Drew is trying to find the mystery of the glowing eye and her friend Ned. Her books could have a little more detail in some things,but after all it was a fantastic book. Each chapter got more and more exciting. If you love reading mystery books then this is the one for you!

This was so terrifying that it seemed to scary to put down, but I'm glad I got through. This should really be the number 1 Nancy Drew. I've read scary books before, but not as scary as this, ever. Totally reccomended.

Though ALL Nancy Drew books are great, I have to admit that this is one of the top ten - it's really suspenseful! You have to read it yourself!

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By R. M. Fisher TOP 1000 REVIEWER on April 13, 2010
Format: Paperback
Nancy thinks her biggest worry is sharing her father's attention with his attractive new research-assistant Marty King, to whom her father has divulged information on a possible case, when a bigger problem literally lands in her back garden. A pilot-less helicopter descends in her garden, with nothing and nobody aboard except an envelope addressed to Nancy herself. Inside is a letter signed from her boyfriend Ned Nickerson that reads: "Beware of Cyclops. Ned."

A quick check confirms that Ned has been missing from his fraternity house for several days, and Nancy instantly fears that he's been kidnapped. Joined by Ned's (fairly interchangeable) roommates Burt and Dave, Nancy and her friends George and Bess begin an investigation into Ned's disappearance. But when the helicopter lifts off from Nancy's garden that night, it takes with it any clues or solid leads on where Ned might be.

Nancy begins to suspect that the note about "Cyclops" may have something to do with the mystery that her father has been alluding to, one that leads her to the Anderson Museum in Hager where there have been rumors of university students performing experiments that involve a large, glowing eye. After a few excursions into a nearby swamp, several rides in various helicopters, a hunt around Emerson University, and a rather eventful night in the museum, Nancy suspects that a mysterious red-headed man is behind Ned's disappearance.

This is a decent Nancy Drew mystery, although certainly not the best. The pace is swift and the ideas concerning electromagnetism, robotic helicopters and paralyzing beams of light are certainly fun, and the entire premise is given a degree of personal involvement considering it is Ned whose life seems to be in danger.
