Spine ends bumped, black mark on front cover (perhaps from pen that made remainder mark on bottom page edges); interior pages clean and bright. Unclipped dust wrapper has very light edgewear. A nice copy. ; You do not need to read the first Cece Caruso mystery in order to enjoy this second title in the series. A fun mystery, especially for those of us that grew up with Nancy Drew or are members of an author's 'fan group'.; "Besides her beloved collection of vintage designer clothing, there is nothing Cece Caruso cherishes more than her childhood memories of Nancy Drew. Her near obsession with the fictional teenage sleuth led her to become a professional biographer of classic mystery writers. And now that she's working on a book about Nancy's pseudonymous creator, "Carolyn Keene, " Cece's in heaven.
At the L. A. home of another rabid Drew-ophile, Cece finds a treasure trove of useful memorabilia, including one unique and somewhat shocking collectible. Later she finds a dead body -- and a puzzle that would sorely test the skills of her spunky girlhood heroine. Now she'll have to channel her former idol and unmask a murderer, and the killer may be coming for Cece next."
