Other writers who have adapted the “Carolyn Keene” moniker include Leslie McFarlane, James Duncan Lawrence, Walter Karig, and Nancy Axelrod.

Laura Linney's extensive film credits include her Academy Award–nominated role in You Can Count on Me, as well as The Truman Show, Absolute Power, Primal Fear, and The Mothman Prophecies. She has also appeared on Broadway in The Crucible and starred in the critically acclaimed PBS miniseries Tales of the City. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

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.

- Paid Rs.213 for this.
- I was a huge fan during my school days and had read every title that was there at the library. Bought this for old times sake.
- Hardbound book with a few black and white drawings relevant to the story.
- In this Nancy Drew tries to tries to recover a lost will.
