Trust No One: 07/19/14
Trust No One by Linda Sue Park is the penultimate in the 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers series. At long last the Cahills have wised up and realize they can and more importantly should fight back.
Unfortunately, this is also the book where the second series goes completely off the deep end. In the previous books, Vesper One has been sending our intrepid heroes all over Europe to steal ancient artifacts. Now they come to realize through the power of the all seeing internet what all these pieces can be bodged together to make in the Vesper version of Junkyard Wars.
I'll save my LONG rant on what the big prize is for the final book because it's a doozy. Suffice it to say, when the secret was revealed, I groaned. It's so out of character for the original series that it's frankly embarrassing.
