The Secret of the Forgotten City is the fifty-second volume in the Nancy Drew Mystery Stories series. It was first published in 1975 under the pseudonym Carolyn Keene. The actual author was ghostwriter Harriet Stratemeyer Adams.


Nancy and her friends plan to join a dig sponsored by two colleges to hunt for a treasure hidden in a city now buried under the Nevada desert. Before she starts, the young sleuth receives an ancient stone tablet with petroglyphs on it. A thief also wants the treasure.
