When attending the opening of a new park and recreation center, Nancy, Bess, and George accidentally acquire a dog in the park. The dog will open the door to yet another baffling mystery! Togo, as Bess calls him, scampers away with a woman's purse and dunks it in a pond. Mrs. Owen, as a club woman, is to be the keynote speaker for the opening and needs the notes in the handbag! Nancy dutifully has the purse retrieved in time to give the woman prompts during her address and notice some unusual correspondence. The grateful woman thanks Nancy and remarks that she bears a resemblance to a statue on an abandoned estate in Sea Cliff. Nancy just so happens to be headed there with her father and the girls and promises to see it for herself while her father is busy on behalf of a client.

On the train to Sea Cliff Nancy spots a sharp-looking individual who appears to be after the contents of an old woman's pockets. The old woman rebuffs Nancy's attempts to warn her, but is doomed to have Nancy continue to pry into her business. There are several perplexing incidents that seem to show a connection between the mysterious old woman, Miss Morse, and Mrs. Owen and her father's client. Meanwhile, the estate on which the Whispering Girl stands is slowly being washed away to sea has secrets of it's own. Can Nancy put all the pieces together in time?

This was nice enough - I especially liked the climax at Old Estate during the big storm - but 'The Whispering Statue' doesn't stand out from the other titles in the original series. Of course, any version of the original Nancy is head and shoulders above the meeker creature that emerged after the revisions of the 1950s and '60s.

Mrs. Merriam thinks she is being cheated by Mr. Basswood. Nancy goes undercover as a clerk in Mr. Basswood. She wears a disguise of a black wig and dark makeup so he won't know she is the famous Nancy Drew. With the help of her friends she uncovers the truth of what is going on at his store and the fate of the missing Whispering Statue. ( )

I absolutely loved Nancy Drew growing up. This was a series I latched on to for dear life and never let go. Anytime my mom and I would go to antique stores, we'd peruse the Nancy Drews and add them to the collection (oftentimes my mom had to make deals with me on how many I could buy). So, while I don't remember the exact details of each and every one, the entire series was amazing and really fed my love for reading (especially novels full of suspense and mystery). Thank you, Carolyn Keene, for giving us an intelligent female character to fall in love with in Nancy Drew! ( )

#14 Once again, Nancy faces two puzzling mysteries at once! The first concerns a valuable collection of rare books that Mrs. Horace Merriam commissioned an art dealer to sell--has he swindled her instead? The second mystery revolves around the baffling theft of a beautiful marble statue. To solve both mysteries, the famous young detective disguises herself and assumes a false identity. Despite these precautions, danger stalks Nancy’s every move. An attempted kidnapping, a nearly disastrous sailboat collision, and an encounter with a dishonest sculptor are just a few of the exciting challenges that Nancy is faced with as she gathers evidence against a clever ring of art thieves.
