Late entry in the Penny Parker teen girl mystery series (1939-47) by one of the early ghostwriters (as Carolyn Keene) of Nancy Drew concerns an escaped embezzler, his revenge on the reporter whose articles helped convict him, and a long missing $50 grand.

MWB is a terrific writer. She conveys a lot of info using simple sentences. I disagree with the previous reviewer about the reader. He does a much better job that the woman who reads the other three PP mysteries available.

Matt is unfortunately an inconsistent and hesitant narrator of this story, you may persist because you think it might get better, it doesn't. The story itself is a simple mystery with the main character being a precocious Nancy Drew type, but with less sense.
