Overview

A brand new adventure from the world of The 39 Clues! For 500 years, the Cahills have been the most powerful family in the world. For 500 years, they've protected the source of their power - the 39 Clues. And for 500 years, they've kept their secrets silent. Until now. This extraordinary stand-alone novel cracks open the Cahill vault to tell the story of the most coveted piece of artwork in the world, a masterpiece that has been the target of seven separate theft attempts: Jan van Eyck’s altarpiece at Ghent. OPERATION TRINITY chronicles the first Vesper attack on the altarpiece in the 1600s, then jumps to WWII and young Grace Cahill’s desperate bid to save the masterwork from the Nazis. The final piece of the novel tells the story of Ian and Natalie Kabra’s first solo operation and features an 11th hour appearance by Grace Cahill on her final mission. History will never be the same.

School Library Journal
Gr 4–7—For generations, the Vespers and Cahills have sought to steal certain rare artifacts that contain one of 39 clues that will lead to ultimate power for anyone who has all of them. The Madrigal branch of the Cahill family has tried to protect them from discovery. Attending a boarding school in Massachusetts, Grace Cahill is a retired Madrigal Agent who longs to live an artifact-free life. Her dreams are put on hold when a Louvre employee contacts her for help with regard to a stolen altarpiece. Created by medieval artist Jan Van Eyck, it is believed to hold a secret map to the clues' locations. Throughout history, thieves have stolen parts of the masterpiece in search of the map, but have failed. Grace tries to ignore the request until a Vesper disguised as a teacher tries to kill her for information about the item's whereabouts. Can Grace find and the altarpiece and save it from falling into the wrong hands? Will she ever be able to quit getting pulled into her family's disputes? This is a fun prequel to the "39 Clues" series. The World War II setting, conflicts with the Nazis, and the references to the artist Van Eyck add a new level of believable intrigue without overwhelming the plot. Fans of the other Cahill stories or those who like mystery, suspense, and adventure will enjoy this book.—Kira Moody, Whitmore Library, Murray, UT
