FORMAT: UNABRIDGED 5 CDs

After pulling some spectacular heists, Amy and Dan have become two of Interpol's most wanted criminals. So when Vesper One orders them to steal the world's largest diamond, they know they're facing life in prison . . . or worse. But with the Cahill hostages still in peril, Amy and Dan have no choice but to launch a mission that leads them to an ancient city full of dangerous secrets. With a Vesper mole sabotaging the Madrigals from inside, Amy and Dan have to fulfill their enemy's request before it's too late. Vesper One has developed a taste for killing Cahills, and Amy and Dan aren't going to wait to see who's next.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“David Pittu does a fabulous job of giving the many characters different voices.”
--School Library Journal on The 39 Clues Book Four
Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
Shatterproof is the fourth book in the "Cahills vs. Vespers" series (a continuation of the "39 Clues" series). In this particular part of the adventure Dan and Amy Cahill (brother and sister) have teamed up with brother duo Atticus and Jake, who are extremely smart and pretty good friends to boot (even if they are not part of the extensive Cahill family). Vesper One has captured seven Cahills and is holding them hostage unless Amy and Dan deliver some bizarre ransoms. Stealing a diamond from a museum and finding an ancient apology in Timbuktu being the challenges in this particular story. As with other books in this series, the pace and drama of the adventure are as exciting as ever. Readers will wonder how four teens/kids would even be able to accomplish the deeds that they do. And although there are a few clues as to where the hostages are (and what happens to one of them), readers still are left to wonder if Amy and Dan will be able to save them while trying to figure the greater puzzle of how to stop the Vespers from all their evil plans. Plus David Pittu did a fantastic job of reading this book. Kids will be able to distinguish between different characters (and there are so many) just by the tone and inflections of his voice. Readers will not only enjoy this Cahill adventure, they will want to listen to it all over again. Reviewer: Joella Peterson

The best book in the world. The Vespers lied that they killed Phoniex so they could get amy and dan to bielieve he's dead but he's alive the Vespers do'nt know his alive and survived the fall from the water fall and is still alive .

I have a theory about who Vesper One is. This could be totally wrong, or Vesper One could be some person we haven't heard of yet. Attention! Read on at own risk! Drumroll, please... Arthur Trent! You know, Amy and Dan's father? It makes sense, sort of. But how could he do such horrible things? I'm not sure. Like I said, I could be totally wrong about this ehole thing. I just reread the Medusa Plot, and it fits with the last chapter. And we know he's alive because he contacts Dan. But who knows, could be that somehow someone found out stuff about Amy and Dan's childhood and pretended to be their dad. We may never know. Actually, I'm guessing we'll find out. Isn't moon face proof enough? Well, some parts fit and others don't, but it's a very interesting idea. By the way, 39 clues and Cahills vs. Vespers both rock! If I had to choose a favorite, it would be C vs V. It's awesome when all the differents branches team up! Something else: What's Ian up to? Are the Vespers and Lucians involved together somehow? Hmm...you've got to admit, some Lucians act like Vespers. I wonder if Cahills ever joined the Vespers? Anyway, it's a mystery that we won't know for sure what the answer is... UNTIL THE NEXT BOOK! GO CAHILLS VS VESPERS! PS My fav branch is Madrigal

Sooo good can't wait for the last one. Who do you guys thin Vesper One is? And who already read the preview of Trust No One? SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe Sinead is Vesper Three (aka the mole)! She seemed so sweet in the past few books. But if there was one reason I could think of why she would be a Vespee it would be when the Holts put her, Ned, and Ted in the hospital after the explosion. I'd love to see what you guys think of this. Also who do you think is Vespers One, Two, and Four? Cant waittt!!!!!!

I love all the 39 clues books and can not wait for the next one!!! I do wish that they would not have so many guys Amy could end up with!!! I think she should give Ian a chance since he has changed a lot though I am not sure if I want her to end up with him in the end. I think Evan would be ok if they had developed his character so that you knew more then he appears to really like Amy and is a geek. I have no clue what to think about Jake.
