A Script for Danger: 01/02/19
A Script for Danger by Carolyn Keene is the tenth of the Nancy Drew Diaries. A movie production has come to River Heights and Nancy is friends with the person heading the production.
Right away things seem off from the production. There are accidents and other screw ups. Then things start to escalate. Someone is sabotaging the filming!
For the most part, I've enjoyed this revamping of Nancy Drew. Nancy in this version is at her best in rural places. She and her friends work best when they are in a new location, away from the known.
The River Heights stories have always been the weak links in this story. This time around, the story felt like it was written by someone with only passing knowledge of how films are made. Likewise, the accidents and sabotage as well as the person's reason for it are both obvious and nonsensical when taken with a better understanding of how films are made.
The eleventh book is The Red Slippers
