A Hollywood movie is being filmed in Riverside and Nancy and her friends are excited to visit the set and meet the handsome lead actor, Brian Newsome. Nancy and her friends get special access because the director is an old friend of Nancy. But strange and dangerous things begin to happen right from the get-go. Someone is determined to shut down the set and ruin the film's chances of ever being made. Can Nancy track down the set saboteur before it's too late?
A film is being made in River Heights—and there’s sabotage on the set—in this tenth book of the Nancy Drew Diaries, a fresh approach to a classic mystery series.
Nancy’s old friend—and former paralegal to Carson Drew—Alex Burgess is making a movie…and it’s filming in River Heights! On the first day of shooting, Alex invites Nancy, Bess, and George on set for a behind-the-scenes peek at how a movie is made. George is excited for a closer look at the cameras and special effects, and Bess is mostly around to get a glimpse of the film’s leading man: handsome actor Brian Newsome!
But right before the camera starts rolling there’s an explosion in the catering area. Turns out someone put firecrackers in the coffeemaker. Not too long after that, Brian’s costume is found streaked with blood. And threatening notes show up scrawled on the scripts: SHUT IT DOWN OR YOU’LL BE SORRY.
Can Nancy track down the set saboteur before the film’s dangerous final scene? Or will the entire production go up in flames first?
