Nancy Drew: Danger by Design is the 14th installment in the award-winning PC series developed by Her Interactive. In this game, Nancy will travel undercover in the outskirts of Paris, France, where she will learn soon enough that the fashion world is more ferocious than she thought.


Nancy Drew is sent undercover to work as an assistant to famous fashion designer Minette. But what she's really doing is finding out why Minette has been acting strangely recently. First, Minette begins falling way behind on her projects; second, she throws dangerous temper tantrums, and fires her assistants in the process. Furthermore, Minette refuses to take off her mask, metaphorically or otherwise. Nancy has to uncover clues around Paris to unlock the mystery behind Minette's mask.

Resolution (Spoilers)Edit

And there it was. The real reason why Minette wore that mask. A tattoo which she later admitted, she had gotten on the spur of the moment and hitch she instantly regretted, calling it the most stupidest thing she'd ever done in her life.

She also admitted that the reason she had fallen so far behind in schedule was because Ernst and Gunther Schmeck, former members of the East German secret police, were paying her a small fortune to create a dress for the first lady out of fabric they supplied. This fabric was infused with microscopic circuitry that would allow them to eavesdrop on the World Summit.

All three have been arrested, which means that Minette will probably be designing her next collection from a jail cell.

And she doesn't care for stripes.

As for the beautiful pieces of stained glass that Noisette Tornade hid away years ago, they have been returned to the churches they came from, and Noisette is finally getting the respect and gratitude she was denied after the war. Not that she was perfect. But it seems to me her biggest fault wasn't doing too little for her beloved city of Paris, but trying to do too much.

And as if busting a pair of spies and recovering lost treasure weren't enough, Heather took over Minette's Spring show and had me -- ME -- be one of the models. Believe it or not, I managed to make it all the way down the runway and back without falling flat on my face. Of course, I still have no idea what I was wearing, but I can tell you one thing --

It was rude. Very rude. (Normal ending)

As for Heather, after Minette was arrested Amy Grunhild asked her to salvage the Spring show. So she finished Minette's designs, came up with a few of her own, got everything made, lined up the models, and put on a show that Jean Michel is still raving about. Unfortunately, I wasn't invited. (If Heather gets fired)
