The Clue hunt is over, but Amy and Dan Cahill's lives haven't exactly returned to normal. They know that the Cahills' historic rivals-the Vespers-have been waiting for the opportunity to strike. As the new Madrigal leaders, it's up to Amy and Dan to prepare the Cahills for attack, but their efforts aren't enough to stop the Vespers, a mysterious organization that includes some of the world's most dangerous criminals.

In one devastating move, they kidnap a number of Cahills and then send Amy and Dan a strange message. If the kids can steal a famous painting and give it to the Vespers, they'll release one of the hostages.

Suddenly, Amy and Dan find themselves in a new global race but this time, everything's different, Those closest to them might be working for the enemy, and Amy and Dan are forced to ask themselves how far they're willing to go.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An excellent start to an epic, new hunt.”

    Quill and Quire

  • “[A] lean, easy-to-like thrill ride with guaranteed crowd-pleasing elements like secret societies, art heists, and heroes with unlimited cash and connections to fuel their around-the-world intrigue.”

    Booklist

  • Action, adventure, and danger abound. And, of course, a cliff-hanger ending will leave readers stunned and wanting more. Without a doubt, if the first “39 Clues” series had kids racing to finish the books, this one is a must-purchase.”

    " THIS BOOK WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my gods... From the moment i picked it up, i couldn't put it down. This review is going to be short because i need to read book 2! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leah | 2/8/2014

    " Ok, so I love these books. Seriously. I know the targeted audience is 11 - 14, but they're awesome! My only problem is how short they are. I need to read at least three in one go to actually feel satisfied! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 2/7/2014

    " This book was fun and fast-paced. I loved seeing kids from all of the Cahill branches working together! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eoin | 1/26/2014

    " Another great installment to the 39 Clues series. Liked the idea of how Caravaggio's 'Medusa' was a map of the tunnels under the Colloseum. Atticus was a fun character to read about. This book was much more intense than most of the others since seven people's lives were on the line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Prosper | 1/20/2014

    " This book is AMAZING!!! It takes place after the first series. Amy and Dan thought they won the clue hunt and that their lives would be normal. But they were wrong. Now 7 Cahills have been kidnapped worldwide. Amy and Dan have received a package that contains a cell phone with one text message. "We have hostages. Do what we want or they die". This book keeps you reading until the end. I recommend this book to people who love mystery/detective fiction stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Veronica | 8/23/2013

    " I am LOVING this whole Cahills vs. Vesper's thing rather than Chaill vs. Cahill. It's very scary to think of so many family member's lives being on the line, but it's bringing all the family together! The book just has constant action and you never know what's going to happen! "

    " My daughter wanted to start this series...she is 6 but a high level reader. Although some of the words are too much for her we read two chapters a night together to enhance her reading and this was a good story. We were both into it! We just started book 2...those pesky Vespers! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brielle | 11/5/2011

    " really intriguing. I'm so sad that Dan is turning darker, he was such a buoyant character in the 39 Clues. It makes sense that it would have an adverse effect on his personality, but it still makes me sad. "
