Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Those gutsy, resourceful Falconers, 15-year-old Aiden and 11-year-old Meg, are back for the 6th, and final, "On the Run" installment. No longer attempting to elude Hairless Frank (the would-be assassin who framed their parents), they are now planning to lure him into a trap . . . with themselves as bait. It is risky, but it is their parents' only shot at being released from jail. As the story opens, Aiden's helping an injured farmer, while Meg hides on the premises. They place an ad in the paper, hoping to draw Frank out. When he replies, they set up a meeting at a deserted produce terminal only to be caught by a night watchman. In typical Falconer fashion, they escape the locked room via the ceiling's heating ducts! Then their quarry turns out to be a conman! Later, when Frank does show up, he shoots his way out of the trap, and the heroes escape when Meg hits him with . . . a turnip?! Aiden's desperation leads him to risk his life to get Frank's taped confession. Meanwhile, in a dramatic change of heart, Meg recruits the FBI because she is terrified her brother will get killed. In the end, it is Frank who is killed . . . but not before his confession is recorded. As the saga ends, Aiden and Meg are finally reunited with their parents, whose innocence is proven at last. Despite the turnip-as-weapon, this is another rollicking ride by the always entertaining Korman, who shares his protagonists' knack for imaginative solutions. This is a fun, satisfying conclusion to a page-turner of a series. 2006, Scholastic, Ages 11 to 14.
