Nancy starts out this mystery as she is driving back home from delivering some important papers for her father when she witnesses a small girl being frightened and confused by a speeding van and subsequently falling off a wall. After rescuing the small girl and taking her home, Nancy is introduced to the first of many relatives who make claim that a certain favourite cousin had promised to remember them in his will, but did not carry out his promise after his passing which was strange to them.
What intrigues Nancy the most, I think in this story was the fact that this particular cousin went to live with another relative, a well-to-do family that was well known to Nancy, and not people that stood favourable in Nancy's eyes, and whose claims to this cousin's estate after his passing, turn out to be rather suspicious, once Nancy was directed to other relatives who made similar claims of being taken care of by this same man.
Of course, Nancy, being the curious sleuth she always is, was piqued by the claims of there being another will and wanted to figure out what was going on, especially since everyone she met claimed there was another will but none was ever found, and she wanted to help them all.
One thing leads to another and throughout the entire novel, the suspense builds beautifully until the end when Nancy finally solves the mystery.
This is a delightful story as always and I truly enjoyed it and I'm sure anyone else who is a fan of Nancy Drew's will too!
