From the back cover:

Nancy faces a bitter foe in pursuit of a venomous villain.

A winter vacation in Wisconsin promises plenty of of skiing, skating, and snowmobiling. But soon after their arrival at the Butter Ridge ski resort, Nancy, Bess, and George find that a different kind of sport comes first- and it's an exercise in fear. Wickford Castle, the main lodge, is full of spine-tingling surprises and strange secrets!

Originally from France and rebuilt in Wisconsin, the castle holds a mystery over two centuries old- rumor of a hidden treasure. Seeking the haunting truth, Nancy is drawn into a maze of concealed corridors, dead-end doorways, and shadowy staircases. She quickly learns that whether or not the treasure exists, the dangers are definitely real!

Computer game adaption

Her Interactive adapted the book into the fourth computer game for their popular Nancy Drew Adventure Game series; it was released on July 24, 2001. The plot is similar to the plot of the book, except that Nancy is snowed in at the castle, Bess and George aren't at the resort with Nancy, and some unimportant characters from the book were removed.

On November 10, 2010, Treasure in the Royal Tower was released as apart of the Nancy Drew Collector's Edition box. The game was included as a fan-voted favorite game, which also included games The Secret of Shadow Ranch and The Curse of Blackmoor Manor.
