In the English village of Beckworth, the local residents live in fear. Five houses have been defaced with the same graffiti. A grotesquely leering gargoyle's head on the the front door. The vandalism is blamed on the "Bedworth Bruisers", a gang of local youths who notoriously terrorise newcomers to the village. As the marked houses becomes targets for break-ins and theft, Detective Chief Inspector Webb steps in.

When the body of Carol Dexter, who has just moved from London, is found floating in a pond, Webb can't help but note that her door was also marked by this strange symbol. It seems to act as a warning … or as a target …

With three more houses marked, DCI Webb must consider whether murder is the meaning behind the symbols on the doors. Or is it something even stranger …

One afternoon in Manhattan's Washington Square Park, Eric Mather is approached by two men, Tom and Jerry, with a business proposal: a bit of light espionage that may be considered treason. Eric's friend and colleague, physics professor Peter Bradley, is on his way back from an international conference in Athens. In his briefcase is a roll of film that must be confiscated to keep the Cold War from turning hot. Bradley won't miss this little roll of film, they say, and nobody will get hurt.

When Bradley is stabbed to death in an apartment on East Tenth Street, Eric realizes he has made a bargain with the wrong people. Desperate to make up for betraying his friend, he ventures into a shadowy world of danger and intrigue as he sets out to learn everything he can about Tom and Jerry — two foreign agents engaged in an atomic game of cat and mouse.

On the path to building a better life for herself, Miranda "Munch" Mancini has started her own limo service, to compliment her work as an auto mechanic. Times are tough, making it impossible to turn down a client, even when it's a shady federal agent hiring her services to ferry a sleazy diplomat. Munch hands the actual driving duties over to Ellen, an old friend who's fresh out of prison, also looking for a new start.

When Ellen disappears with both the car and the client, the police are back on Munch's doorstep. A serial killer is on the loose, and Munch's client may have been a victim — or the perpetrator. Munch now must bring the police into her life again if she's going to put her past behind her and save a few lives — including her own.

For more information about the book, see a synopsis, below.

In "The Fake Heir" Nancy, along with Bess and George, find the wreck of an old yacht with a safe inside full of jewelry worth a small fortune. Cousins of the Druthers, who are clients of Nancy's dad Carson Drew, owned the yacht. Their will leaves everything to Mr. Druthers, specifically excluding his spouse, (whom the cousins hated), but no one's seen him for ten years and the rumor is that Mrs. Druthers murdered him! Things take a surprising turn when suddenly Mr. Druthers reappears! But then Mrs. Druthers disappears! Join Nancy Drew as she solves the mystery of the fake heir!

Then, in "Mr Cheeters is Missing" when the eccentric Blanche Porter reports that her beloved Mr. Cheeters has vanished, it isn't your standard missing persons case. As Nancy Drew soon discovers, Mr. Cheeters, is a pet chimp. Or is he? Based on a preliminary investigation and information obtained from Blanche's brother, Lawrence, the River Heights police dismiss the case as bogus — doubting that there ever was a Mr. Cheeters to begin with. But when Nancy Drew discovers there's a missing diamond necklace as well — she's on the case!
