From official release/information:
NEW YORK, NY (August 11, 2009) — The global hunt for The 39 Clues®, the New York Times bestselling multi-media adventure series from Scholastic, continues today with the release of Book 5: The Black Circle by bestselling author Patrick Carman. The hardcover edition is being released simultaneously in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, and India, along with the audiobook edition produced by Scholastic Audio.
In June, following the publication of Book 4: Beyond the Grave, Scholastic introduced an online campaign, “Where Will Amy and Dan Go Next?” which led kids to investigate the mystery surrounding Amy and Dan Cahill’s next global destination. The campaign featured a 6-part exclusive video report, which included interviews with authors Jude Watson and Patrick Carman. The campaign culminates today with the revelation of Amy and Dan’s location in Book 5: The Black Circle.
"As an avid reader, gamer, and total thrill seeker, I can't imagine a better writing experience than The 39 Clues,” said Patrick Carman. "I became completely immersed in Dan and Amy’s whirlwind adventure, and I was lucky enough to chronicle them into one of the most interesting places on earth. Writing The Black Circle made me a fan of The 39 Clues for life!"
