Nancy Drew is on her way to the Lilac Inn, where 17-year-old Emily Crandall is trying to manage the property she inherited from her late mother. A mutual friend has asked Nancy to look in on Emily who is straining to keep up with the management and financial demands of the Inn and do so just one month after the loss of her mum. Meantime, Nancy is curious about why a girl she hardly knows would want to meet with her. Does it have something to do with the contested inheritance? Whatever fueled the invitation, it's up to Nancy to find the answers and rescue Emily from possible financial and emotional ruin. In honor of Nancy Drew's 75th anniversary, Nancy Drew: Secret of the Old Clock is based on the first book of the same name in the series. This is the twelfth installment in the award-winning Nancy Drew CD-ROM mystery series from Her Interactive.
