The Secret in the Old Well

This 1944 book has a really good story to it. The main characters are the Dana girls, Jean ands Louise; Lettie (the troublemaker), Uncle Ned and some fur thieves.

The story involves furs stolen off Uncle Ned's boat. A psychic reader is involved and so is Lettie. A missing husband and some stolen plans complicate the matters. Both girls end up attacked by thugs and something of Lettie's is stolen. These are some rough thugs they are all dealing with and it takes a lot of work on their part to figure out who is tied in with who and what part Lettie plays in all of this.

It makes for a good detective story and a good Dana girls story at the same time.
