The Ultimate Sacrifice

It started with a kidnapping. A shadowy organization known only as the Vespers snatched seven members of the Cahill family and demanded a series of bizarre ransoms from around the world. Thirteen-year-old Dan Cahill and his older sister Amy began a global treasure hunt, determined to bring back whatever Vesper One needed, so long as it kept the hostages safe.

But when they deliver the last ransom, Amy and Dan discover Vesper One’s terrifying endgame. The objects he demanded are vital pieces in a Vesper plot that will harm millions of innocent people. Now the two siblings and their friends are in an all-out sprint to stop Vesper One . . . before the whole world goes BOOM.

Children's Literature - Mary Thompson
The Vesper and Cahill families are at it again. With Baldacci at the helm of the last volume, the pulse-pounding pressure may be too much for Dan and Amy Cahill to overcome. Seven Cahill hostages have been taken by Vesper One, their release is promised in return for a series of bizarre ransoms. Once the Cahills find the last clue, they realize that the Vesper's plan is more diabolical and heinous than they had originally thought and that it could destroy millions of people. The race against time splits the group in two directions: one group off to find the hostages in the Cascade Mountains while Dan and Amy travel to D.C. to head off Isabella, who they suspect to be Vesper Two. Finally, they meet up under the Rocky Mountains for the hair-raising standoff between good and evil. The squabbling for control within the Vesper camp and the strained loyalties among the Cahills creates an emotional frenzy that makes the book hard to put down. It is up to the few remaining Cahills to decipher the clues, solve the puzzle, find their missing friends, and save the world. The author injects a healthy dose of history, geography, and geology into the storyline. The "39 Clues" series is akin to a kid's version of the classic movie, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, and will have readers glued to the page right up until the exciting conclusion.
