Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lorraine Donohue Bonzelet
Readers would be mistaken to think that the twelfth and final book in the "Conspiracy 365" series will quickly and neatly pull the storyline together. The suspense continues with twists that tease the reader until the final pages. Cal discovers that his mum has an envelope from Rathbone containing the Ormond Jewel and Riddle. Cal wonders if his mum is the one who attacked him, locking him in the coffin to die. He and his friends fly to Ireland with the help of Sharkey and Cal's look-alike, Ryan. Sligo and Zombie Two leave a trail of death and destruction, catch Cal, and throw him into an underground dungeon with a razor-sharp spike, slimy walls, and sewage water. When death seems inevitable, Cal calls upon the Ormond Angel for help. Coincidently, Rafe saves Cal's life. With the Ormond Riddle complete, the Jewel in hand, and the Ormond Singularity at their fingertips, Sharkey, Rafe and Cal experience an intense finale. This series is a fast-paced, entertaining, mystery-thriller at the superficial level but it certainly begs for more in-depth discussions. Does the reader believe in luck, coincidence, or karma? How are false pretenses, assumptions, and misinformation used to determine the innocence or guilt of a person, like Cal's mum, Rafe, or Sharkey? How does the desire for money lead to the demise of family, friends, and innocent bystanders? Why do some deaths bring emotions of sorrow while others bring relief or joy? Topics of fate, morals, assumptions, rumors, guilt, innocence, life, and death can be used to connect the book with current news events. Book twelve in the "Conspiracy 365" series.
