This book to me wasn't as exciting as the other books were, there was still adventure but not as exciting as the other 9 books have been.

On this journey secrets will be told and people in the family will come together for The 39 Clues. Grace has one last message for Amy and Dan telling them the full truth of the power and feuding between the family over the 39 clues.

In this book Dan and Amy are following the next clue which is leading them to the Bahamas and then Jamaica following Pirates. They are starting to have their doubts about Nelly and they corner her and make her tell them what is going on, can they trust her? They still have the Cabra's close on their trail and trying to always escape Isabell's traps to kill them. One thing that I love about these books is that they use real historical people that you can actually research and put them in this story. Amy and Dan are still meeting people who knew Grace and who were willing to help Grace assist the children with clues, now in Jamaica they meet a family that knew history about Nelly as well as the children.
