Alice, en bon détective amateur, flaire un mystère dans la succession étrange d'un sympathique vieil-' lard, M. Josiah Crosley.
Richard Topham vient d'hériter d'une immense fortune. En la lui léguant, le vieux Josiah aurait-il donc voulu déshériter les siens pour favoriser cet homme égoïste et avide ?
Émue par la détresse et le chagrin de deux pauvres filles dont Josiah avait promis de faire ses héritières, Alice cherche à tirer les choses au clair. Entreprise difficile, car Richard Topham est un adversaire redoutable. De plus, le vieux Josiah semble avoir pris un malin plaisir à brouiller les pistes. Aussi, Alice se trouve-t-elle bientôt engagée dans une véritable chasse au trésor, fertile en surprises et en aventures de toutes sortes...

Read information about the author

Ebook Alice Détective read Online! Carolyn Keene is a writer pen name that was used by many different people- both men and women- over the years. The company that was the creator of the Nancy Drew series, the Stratemeyer Syndicate, hired a variety of writers. For Nancy Drew, the writers used the pseudonym Carolyn Keene to assure anonymity of the creator.

Edna and Harriet Stratemeyer inherited the company from their father Edward Stratemeyer. Edna contributed 10 plot outlines before passing the reins to her sister Harriet. It was Mildred Benson (aka: Mildred A. Wirt), who breathed such a feisty spirit into Nancy's character. Mildred wrote 23 of the original 30 Nancy Drew Mystery Stories®, including the first three. It was her characterization that helped make Nancy an instant hit. The Stratemeyer Syndicate's devotion to the series over the years under the reins of Harriet Stratemeyer Adams helped to keep the series alive and on store shelves for each succeeding generation of girls and boys. In 1959, Harriet, along with several writers, began a 25-year project to revise the earlier Carolyn Keene novels. The Nancy Drew books were condensed, racial stereotypes were removed, and the language was updated. In a few cases, outdated plots were completely rewritten.

Other writers of Nancy Drew volumes include Harriet herself, she wrote most of the series after Mildred quit writing for the Syndicate and in 1959 began a revision of the first 34 texts. The role of the writer of "Carolyn Keene" passed temporarily to Walter Karig who wrote three novels during the Great Depression. Also contributing to Nancy Drew's prolific existence were Leslie McFarlane, James Duncan Lawrence, Nancy Axelrod, Priscilla Doll, Charles Strong, Alma Sasse, Wilhelmina Rankin, George Waller Jr., and Margaret Scherf.
