Nancy agrees to help Rishi find his father. They find an Indian man but his neighbors say he was on a trip to India, and would come back after several weeks.
The girls (Nancy, George and Bess) begin investigating property owned by the unusual Mrs. Anita Allison. They encounter a house "with no insides," and a hidden tunnel.
The property mysteriously catches fire, revealing a hidden cache of jewels.
Nancy traces Rishi's parentage and uncovers a sinister kidnapping plot involving both Mrs. Allison and Rai. The climax also reveals a secret about the ivory charm, and its mysterious powers.

Rishi meets Nancy and she helps him find his father. Nancy gets some clues, one by one and succeeds to solve the mystery. Rishi gets kidnapped by Rai, and is trapped. Nancy comes and tries to help Rishi, and Mr. Tilak also comes to help. Rishi faints, and almost dies but the hidden medicine inside the ivory charm saves his life. At the end of this book, Rishi finally gets to see his true father again. Mr. Tilak, Rishi’s father lets Nancy have the ivory charm, for a gift after it gets repaired.
