Back cover summary

George's childhood friend Merissa Lang is getting married, and George and NANCY DREW have come to Holland to meet her fiancé. The marriage is a fairy tale come true: Prince Andrei, the groom-to-be, has lots of old-world charm and untold riches. But this is one fairy tale that may come to a tragic end: Merissa, an investigative reporter, is nowhere to be found. Nancy suspects that Merissa's latest project -- a story probing the dark secrets of one of the Netherlands' most respected citizens -- has put her life at risk.


FRANK and JOE HARDY are working undercover for the U.S. Treasury. A Cache of gold bullion, stolen fifty years ago by Nazi soldiers, has been traced to the Netherlands. But the brothers' investigation in Amsterdam begins on a chilling note: The one man who might lead them to the gold is murdered. And they've spotted their top suspect at the castle estate of Prince Adrei! Is there a connection between the stolen gold and the missing Merissa? For Nancy, Frank, and Joe, the answer is tangled in enduring loyalties and fatal betrayals.[1]
