Mystery of the Brass Bound Trunk, by Carolyn Keene
Nancy, Bess and George have somehow, between the last befuddling pages of The Clue of the Tapping Heels and the first pages of The Mystery of the Brass Bound Trunk, been to Rotterdam. Why is never explained. Rotterdam? What???? And what was the tap dancing oh to hell with it.
Anyway, on board, there is a girl, Nelda Detweiler, who has been driven out of South Africa by rumors that she is a diamond thief. The similar initials cause luggage confusion, and suddenly Nancy and Nelda are caught up in mayhem.
