Overview

Three amazing adventure stories from the Cahill vault! Read at your own risk.

In 1814, redcoats burned the White House to the ground. In 1889, Harry Houdini discovered a trick that would save his life. In 1955, the U.S. launched the world's first nuclear submarine. And one family pulled the strings behind the scenes at each of these events: the Cahills--the most powerful family the world has ever known.

Now the Cahills have opened their vault and dangerous secrets are pouring out. This volume contains three stories previously-published as ebook adventures, THE REDCOAT CHASE, THE SUBMARINE JOB, and THE HOUDINI ESCAPE, three stories that will change history as we know it forever. Flee alongside a young Cahill as Washington burns, unlock Houdini's magic, and stow away with young Fiske Cahill on a desperate mission that could cost him his life.

Venture into the vault if you dare. But don't say we didn't warn you.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The Cahill Files are bulging with exciting cases about history that could have slipped off track without the family's intervention. In this installment of The 39 Clues series, the Cahills are on the scene at the redcoat burning of the White House during the War of 1812; a life-saving Harry Houdini trick; and the 1955 launch of The Nautilus, the world's first nuclear-powered submarine. Three excellent adventures; every time the vaults open, good reading pours out.

Children's Literature - Sharon M. Himsl
The "39 Clues, Cahill Files: Spymasters" series continues the saga of the Cahill family saga and the secrets they have guarded for generations. Their enemies, the Vespers, are constantly on the prowl, searching for artifacts, documents, and other items capable of causing grave harm in the world. Three stories are told. In "The Redcoat Chase," twelve-year-old Frederick is sent on an important Cahill mission. It is 1814, and America is at war with Britain. Frederick must locate the map to Gideon's ring. Frederick races to the White House on horseback, chased by a Redcoat Vesper. Frederick meets the first lady and both are nearly killed in the search. In "The Houdini Escape," young Harry Houdini is a poor immigrant's son in New York City (1891), earning little performing magic tricks. Overhearing a man bullying his ailing father (a Cahill descendent), Harry confronts a powerful Vesper named Zoltan. Instead, he is kidnapped, bound, and thrown into the harbor. Cleverly skilled with ropes, Harry easily escapes. Zoltan captures him again and threatens to kill Harry's family, unless he agrees to steal a valuable museum artifact. Harry agrees, performing his greatest magic trick yet. In "The Submarine Job," fourteen-year-old Fiske Cahill rushes to help his sister. She is guarding a ring the Vespers desperately want. The year is 1955. Fiske takes the ring and goes undercover as the grandson of an admiral. He boards the U.S.S. Nautilus, the first ever nuclear submarine, and heads for safety in Puerto Rico. However, an undercover Vesper also boards and Fiske must fight for his life. Readers can learn more online and continue the popular adventure with the game cards provided. Reviewer: Sharon M. Himsl
