Nancy Drew must search for a flight of 99 steps to solve the mystery of a friend’s weird dream. Her search leads her to France, but before she leaves the United States, an unknown person calling himself Monsieur Neuf warns the young sleuth not to pursue her mission.

With her friends Bess and George, Nancy arrives in Paris to join her father who is working on another case: to find out what, or who, is frightening wealth financier Monsieur Leblanc into selling large amounts of securities. Startling discoveries convince the young detective that Mr. Drew’s case and her own mystery are linked by the 99 steps, and that a mysterious man has a strong hold over Leblanc. Is it blackmail? Nancy’s quest for further clues leads to the romantic chateau country in the Loire Valley, where a web of danger closes in tightly around the three girls.

I really enjoyed this book. The story was about a young detective, named Nancy Drew, who sets off with her two best friends to Paris, France. There she meets her dad who is solving another case, possibly connecting with Nancy's and her friend's.
In Paris they experience different things like famous whereabouts, and I like how those were combined with the story. I think that teens who are not afraid of a little "old fashioned" vernacular would really find this book great.

It was a nice booK but at times was to confusing and hard to understand. Over all it was an average book out of the series!
