Plot summary

When a neighbor asks Nancy Drew to accompany her to an old uninhabited mansion, a new mystery opens up, and danger lurks on the second floor. Nancy finds a witch tree symbol that leads her to Pennsylvania Dutch country in pursuit of a cunning and ruthless thief.

The friendly welcome the young detective and her friends Bess and George receive from the Amish people soon changes to hostility when it is rumored that Nancy is a witch! Superstition helps her adversary in his attempt to get her off his trail, but Nancy does not give up. She persistently uncovers one clue after another.

Nancy's intelligence and sleuthing ability finally lead to the solution of this puzzling case.


The 33rd installment in the Nancy Drew point-and-click adventure game series by Her Interactive, named Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem, is loosely based on the novel.
