The Professor and the Puzzle: 12/11/19
The Professor and the Puzzle by Carolyn Keene is the fifteenth in the Nancy Drew Diaries series. Nancy and her friends are at the home of Oracle College's president for an annual costume party and fundraiser. During a speech, a brilliant student dressed as Icarus falls when the banister gives way.
Nancy usually has her friends' help but they are called back home the next day. Nancy who is childhood friends with the professor and his daughter, agrees to stay in the hope of discovering who sabotaged the banister.
At the heart of the matter is one of responsibility and promotion. The new department head for classics will be announced soon. It appears pretty quickly that the student who fell wasn't the intended victim.
Solving this one will involve understanding who will benefit most from crime. I figured it out early, but still had fun reading it.
The next book in the series is The Haunting on Heliotrope Lane (2018).
