To solve the mystery of who is sabotaging the storm chasing team, Nancy is thrust into a world of wild weather, high technology, secret conversations, mysterious dealings, and ulterior motives.

As the number-one PC mystery franchise, since 2004, the Nancy Drew series has outsold Harry Potter, Myst and Tomb Raider.
