Publisher's Summary

The brilliant and beloved gang from the New York Times best-selling series is back!

The Mysterious Benedict Society is a modern classic, drawing comparisons to J.K. Rowling and Roald Dahl, named a Time magazine "Best Young Adult Book of All Time," and selling over three million copies.

Some time has passed since the inimitable quartet of Reynie, Sticky, Kate, and Constance have had a mission together. But with the arrival of a new Society member - and a new threat - they must reunite to face dilemmas more dangerous than ever before, including the villainous Mr. Curtain and a telepathic enemy tracking their every move, not to mention a dramatically preteen Constance. 

In its triumphant return, the Society encounters all new challenges, but the series' trademark sly humor, sweet camaraderie, hairsbreadth escapes, and mind-bending puzzles are all as engaging as ever. Fans of the series will be thrilled to see the Society has grown up a little with them, while a new generation of listeners will fall in love with these irresistible adventures.

Critic Reviews

"Chases, narrow squeaks, hastily revised stratagems, and heroic exploits that culminate in a characteristically byzantine whirl of climactic twists, triumphs, and revelations... Clever as ever." (Kirkus Reviews)

"The Mysterious Benedict Society is back! The cast has aged, but the criminal contingency, amped-up action, and derring-do remain the same. Now teenagers, bright-bulb Reynie, intrepid Kate, and Sticky, he of the photographic memory, have the biggest fight ever on their hands. All of the bad guys from previous books (a baker's dozen of them) have returned with revenge on their minds and nefarious plans in their pockets, along with all sorts of instruments of evil. Also in attendance is the ever-contrary Constance Contraire... A welcome return full of the right stuff. (Booklist, starred review)

We Miss Del Roy!!

The story was great as usual but we listened to books 1-3 and one of the reasons they were so great was Del Roy. We cant help but say we were slightly disappointed in the change or narrators in the middle of a series :-(

Wonderful!

I was surprised to see another story and immediately preordered this book. I enjoyed it so much. What happened to Del Roy? He was a great narrator. Eric Pollins did well but sounded a bit strained. Can Constance be less angry and more relaxed and pleasant? You would think that with all the love she has in her life now that her personality would greatly improve. These stories are very imaginative and enjoyable. I wish there were more mystery stories like these. I love humorous mystery stories with no foul language and profanity and no smut. Thank you for such creative and enjoyable stories.

Pretty good

This is not as good as the previous books in the series, but it's still good. The narrator was also not as good as the one who read the previous books, but not terrible.

Awesome book!

This book is absolutely awesome.
The story and the plot is perfect.
I think that this is a great addition to the Series.
After a while I didn’t mind the narrator change as much, but it is still sad that Del Roy died.

I couldn’t stop listening. It had me hooked.
10/10 will listen again.

Worthy Addition to the World of the MBSociety

I wasn't sure about this story... The idea of the children no longer being children, but college age, was off putting to me. Eventually I decided to give it a try. I ended up delighted to find the same young adventurers just a little bit more seasoned. My favorite of the Benedict stories is the story of Nicholas' childhood, so it was nice to see several connections in that direction from this story.
