Aside from these issues, this is a mystery with a reasonable amount of suspense, though I did find the ending disappointing. It was not nearly as dangerous as what one normally finds in Nancy Drew.
I universally loved the Nancy Drew books as a child. As an adult I'm finding they really vary. Some are still fabulous, others remind me that you can't go home again. This is one of the latter.
One stressful adventure after another overwhelmed Nancy and her friends in 102-degree temperature as they follow Nancy's guesses above and below ground. They are assisted by a Indian woman and a young geology student. In the end Nancy and Ned almost lose their lives, just after Nancy has discovered the precious hidden treasure of gold under the Nevada Desert.
The Secret of the Forgotten City has a similar plot line to some of the other books in the series, but it's still a good read. I still enjoy seeing Nancy, Bess, George and their boys solve a case. This is no different.
