But the festivities take an ugly and tragic turn when one good soldier -- Sergeant Stephanie Grindle -- becomes a casualty . . .of murder!

Behind the military facade, Stafford is a hotbed of hidden rage and secret scandals. And someone at the academy is on a personal mission: Do anything to stop Nancy Drew from uncovering the truth!
