Secrets Can Kill is the first game in the Nancy Drew game series. It was later redone, becoming Secrets Can Kill (Remastered).


Dear Dad,

Who would have dreamed taking a semester off to visit Aunt Eloise in Florida would result in another case? Seems a student was murdered at the high school last night, and Daryl Gray, the Student Council President, found the body.

When Aunt Eloise heard, she rushed me right over and introduced me to the principal. He asked if I would find out who did it and why. So it's undercover I go! My only contact is Daryl, so I'm off to solve a murder. I'm calling this case "Secrets Can Kill."

Love, Nancy


When Jake Rogers, a student at Paseo Del Mar High School, is brutally murdered by being pushed face first down a flight of stairs, the entire student body descends into a stunned period of unease. On the scene arrives Nancy Drew, the niece of the Paseo Del Mar High School librarian, who resolves to tackle the case herself.


Dear Dad,

Case closed, and Mitch is on his way to prison. Daryl's recovering just fine, and Connie's giving him private judo lessons. Hulk agreed to pay for the damage to the pharmacy, and Hal got his scholarship.

Today, Aunt Eloise got a letter from a friend, something about a television station and death threats. Sounds like another case for Nancy Drew. Don't worry, I'll be careful.

Love, Nancy
