Back cover summary

Mick Devlin, who once sought to romance NANCY DREW, now seeks her help in solving a mystery. His good friend Nellie Mabo, an Australian aborigine, has made a disturbing discovery. A tjuringa board, and ancient artifact sacred to her tribe, is missing. Nancy suspects Ian and Marian Royce, owners of an opal mine who are feuding with Nellie's people over land rights. But Nancy's search for the lost tjuringa leads to a sudden and startling revelation.


Nancy hooks up with FRANK and JOE HARDY on a rugged hike into the outback. But the expedition soon turns into a perilous confrontation with raging brushfires, poisonous snakes, and near-fatal gunshots. First, the trio learns that a poacher is on the loose, killing off the country's rarest species. then comes news of a theft at the opal mines -- a crime the Royces blame on Nellie Mabo! Hot in pursuit of the real desert desperadoes, Nancy, Frank, and Joe are directly in the line of fire.[1]
