The 39 Clues began in September 2008 with the release of The Maze of Bones by Rick Riodan. This series of ten books will follow Amy Cahill (14) and her brother Dan (11) as they search for the clues that will gain them the power of the Cahill family and untold riches. Each book will be written by a different author, following an overall story arc. Book two, One False Note is by Gordon Korman.

Once again Amy and Dan are finding that while they are trying to play it fair, none of the other groups searching for the clues seem to have any concept of fair play. So, once again Amy, Dan, and their au pair Nellie Gomez are struggling to stay alive long enough to gain the clues needed to win the contest. Is the contest worth it if, in order to win, they have to become people they wouldn't like?

From official release/information:

Product Description: THIS JUST IN! Amy and Dan Cahill were spotted on a train, hot on the trail of one of 39 Clues hidden around the world. BUT WAIT! Police report a break-in at an elite hotel, and the suspects ALSO sound suspiciously like Amy and Dan. UPDATE! Amy and Dan have been seen in a car . . . no, in a speedboat chase . . . and HOLD EVERYTHING! They're being chased by an angry mob?!? When there's a Clue on the line, anything can happen. (YA)
