The book follows the same pattern as the other books in the series. Dan and Amy travel to a new place on the globe in search of a clue. This time they return to the western hemisphere for the first time since the first book, specifically, the Bahamas and then Jamaica. They learn about the life of a Cahill ancestor(s) who left a number of clues to *the* clue. This time the ancestors are the 18th century female pirate, Anne Bonny and the Jamaican heroine the Nanny of the Maroons. These form the educational content of the book and author Park skillfully and unobtrusively lectures the reader while advancing the plot. While doing all of this Dan and Amy have to fend off attempts from rival Cahills to forestall or co-opt their efforts. Isabel Kabra does the honors this time out. Isabel is delightfully evil without a hint of a redeemable qualities. Her children Ian and Natalie however are being worn down and begin to question their role in the clue hunt.
There are some major differences this time around as subplots come to their points. Dan and Amy discover the reason for Nellie's suspiciously high competence and secrecy and meet the mysterious man in black who has followed them around the globe. There is also a tragic death. Park handles the latter with great skill and the reader is affected as much as are Dan and Amy.
In short, a great set up for what promises to be a wild finale. Can it live up to a 9 book buildup? I'm anxious to find out. Highly recommended.

I will not tell you anything specific about content to spoil anything.
Only that it is exciting, and Amy and Dan will learn more about their branch and about their nanny, Nellie !
Great great book.
Looking forward to the conclusion!
