The Cahill super serum is in jeopardy…or has it already been compromised? Just when 13-year-old Dan and 16-year-old Amy Cahill began to think life might approach some semblance of normalcy at the Attleboro, Mass., estate they inherited from their grandmother Grace, the former matriarch of the Cahills, they are attacked at the graveside services for their attorney, Mr. McIntyre, and nearly buried alive. Then their faces are splashed over every tabloid and gossip website in town along with outlandish lies that portray them as spoiled rich kids. And then the federal government begins to investigate them for embezzlement. Someone is definitely after them. Following the trail leads to media mogul J. Rutherford Pierce, who came out of nowhere to control newspapers and businesses across the country. Disturbingly strong and invulnerable henchmen keep attacking; could the serum that Dan and Amy fought so hard to protect, the biggest secret of the Cahill clans, have been leaked? What would that mean to the Cahills…and the world? Good thing the branches of the family are still working together. Series veteran Watson kicks off a new quartet of Cahill adventures with a collection of showy, unrealistic action scenes sprinkled with a few puzzles and populated by two often inconsistent main characters. Pedestrian writing won't matter to series fans. Trading cards and online games will drive this offshoot series to the Gordon Korman–penned conclusion next year. (Multiplatform fiction. 8-12)

Children's Literature - Mary Thompson
Each author brings something unique to every installment of the "39 Clues" series, but the one common trait is the larger than life unstoppable, roller coaster fun. Amy Cahill, now sixteen, and her thirteen-year-old brother, Dan, have enough trouble in their lives and they simply cannot catch a break. Even though they recently reunited the family and decimated a global criminal organization, someone out there still wants them dead. The siblings and their caretaker, Nellie, face their deadliest enemy yet—wealthy politician, Pierce, who controls the media and launches a smear campaign against them. Soon they are under investigation for embezzlement and forced to go into hiding. Pierce's goal is to find the secret Cahill serum formula and make his own army of supermen. Included in this installment is a trip to Ireland, where they embark on a deadly chase on jet skis and surfboards over thirty foot waves, a search through the wilds outside Istanbul for the elusive Anatolian leopard, and an awesome flash mob. As with all volumes in this series, there is a heart stopping cliffhanger. Reviewer: Mary Thompson
