Amy and Dan have managed to rescue one of the Cahills kidnapped by the Vespers, but the remaining hostages are still in peril. Their search for the next ransom item leads Amy and Dan to Turkey and then to Italy where a visit to the site of an ancient disaster changes everything. The Vespers are far more dangerous than the siblings ever imagined and, even worse, it looks like they have an undercover mole posing as a Cahill. Amy and Dan have to face the biggest decision of their lives with nowhere to turn... and no one to trust.

Only to jog my memory for the next installment.
One of the most interesting was the interactions with the Vespers. The story was so terribly short. Alot less detail.
The character of Atticus was my favorite.
This was a book I wanted to listen to in one sitting, and did.
This series has been very entertaining until this one. It was a really short story compared to the others in this series.
Would recommend the whole series to any child or family.
Great voices for the characters.
Get the whole series.
If your kids enjoyed other books from "The 39 Clues" series, they want be disappointed. To me this series is like a pack of vitamin candies - kids love them, you know there is not much nutritional value in them, but you yield once in a while (in this case "vitamins" are some geography and history).
It's one that your mind runs with what can happen in the next book. This series is rated in my best categories section.
The different author and what they bring to the story. The Challenge of the story, action and excitement and knowledge of the story line.
Awesome voice, very detail I compare him to Jim Dale.
The title saids it all
This book is good for learning Geography - I keep hearing about places and end up looking them up on Google Earth.
Solid story, well laid out. There were times when I said to myself, "Really?" because the kids do a few things that are dumb that make the story a bit more predictable. However, the backstory with the Dad is great.
David Pittu is one of the best. The voices are very distinctive, and easy to listen to. Also, the production is top notch. Some audiobooks have obvious cuts and pops, and the sound quality can be rough, but not so with this company. The clarity and even the music are both perfect for this reading.
