A visit to her father's law firm leads Nancy to take legal action...against a murderer.
Jack Broughton worked at Carson Drew's law firm. He also had a second, secret source of income: blackmail. But his scheme is dead, and so is he. Nancy found the body- now she's looking for the killer.
Broughton had a list of "clients" and a list of enemies to match. The question is, which one actually carried out the sentance of death? Never before has Nancy been so desperate to find an answer. Rumors are running wild in River Heights, and word is out that a top suspect in the case is none other then her own father, Carson Drew!
