On the trail of a Clue hidden by fearsome samurai Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Amy and Dan head to Japan — the heart of Tomas territory.

Rumor has it that Katherine Cahill hid a Clue in Egypt 500 years ago that may have been connected to three golden statues of the Egyptian goddess Sakhet. Amy and Dan have managed to get one of the statues, but their hunt for the other two leads them to a mummy’s tomb and a confrontation with one of their deadliest enemies.
Amy and Dan make a direct assault on a Lucian stronghold beneath the Kremlin in Moscow.

Isabel Kabra trails Amy and Dan in Australia, where they are researching a little-known outlaw named Bob Troppo.

Amy and Dan's parents were murdered for the Clue hunt… and they may be left to face the same fate.
Amy and Dan find a hint in the notebook of a fallen competitor that leads to South Africa.

After an argument with his sister in Beijing's Forbidden City, Dan is kidnapped by the Kabras. Nellie and Amy are searching for him, along with a Clue connected to Tomas mountaineer George Mallory and the last Emperor of China. It’s the first time Amy and Dan have been separated — in a
country of more than a billion people. How will they find each other again?
Amy and Dan travel to the Caribbean in search of a Clue related to one of Jamaica’s most notorious outlaws — female pirate, Anne Bonny. Recent evidence suggests that Bonny was a Madrigal. They’re on the right trail, but the Madrigals, led by the Man in Black, are finally poised to strike.
Amy and Dan Cahill are in London on the last leg of the Clue hunt, investigating the lost years of William Shakespeare. But as they close in on a shocking discovery, all the rules change.

A single mistake could lead to fatal consequences and an unthinkable end to the Hunt.
The Cahills thought they were the most powerful family the world had ever known. They thought they were the only ones who knew about Gideon Cahill and his Clues. The Cahills were wrong.
Powerful enemies—the Vespers—have been waiting in the shadows. Now it's their time to rise and the world will never be the same. In Vespers Rising, a brand new The 39 Clues novel, bestselling authors Rick Riordan, Peter Lerangis, Gordon Korman and Jude Watson take on the hidden history of the Cahills and the Vespers, and the last, terrible legacy Grace Cahill leaves for Amy and Dan.
Just when Amy and Dan Cahill think their family is safe, disaster strikes—seven Cahills are kidnapped by a shadowy group known only as the Vespers. Amy and Dan have only days to fulfill a bizarre ransom request or the captured seven will start dying. But even as the race to save the hostages begins, a sinister question looms: What are the Vespers really after?
With the lives of their kidnapped relatives on the line, Amy and Dan are given another impossible request—steal a priceless map that's been missing for more than half a century. As the body count rises, Amy and Dan start a frantic search across Europe and through one of the darkest periods of human history. However, the secrets they uncover about the Vespers are nothing compared to the most shocking discovery of all—someone thought to be dead seems very much alive . . .
When seven members of his family were kidnapped by the Vespers, thirteen-year-old Dan Cahill knew he was in for the fight of his life. He knew he was up against an impossibly powerful enemy. And Dan knew the odds were that some of his family members wouldn't make it. But even as Dan steels himself to accept these facts, the unthinkable happens. The Vespers capture a blameless bystander—Dan's best friend Atticus. With an innocent life on the line, Dan kicks off a frantic hunt that will take him from the back alleys of Prague to the rock caves of Turkey. But Dan better find Atticus fast. If he doesn't, his best friend will surely die.
After pulling some spectacular heists, Amy and Dan have become two of Interpol's most wanted criminals. So when Vesper One orders them to steal the world's largest diamond, they know they're facing life in prison . . . or worse. But with the Cahill hostages still in peril, Amy and Dan have no choice but to launch a mission that leads them to an ancient city full of dangerous secrets. With a Vesper mole sabotaging the Madrigals from inside, Amy and Dan have to fulfill their enemy's request before it's too late. Vesper One has developed a taste for killing Cahills, and Amy and Dan aren't going to wait to see who's next.
For the first time since leaving Attleboro, the fight against the Vespers has brought Amy and Dan back to the U.S., but their homecoming is anything but sweet. The siblings thought nothing could hurt more than having their loved ones kidnapped by a cruel and powerful enemy, but the Vespers have landed their most serious blow yet — a blow that strikes at the very heart of the Cahill family. There's a Vesper mole in their inner circle. Vesper One's next assignment will take the Cahills somewhere crawling with dangerous enemies. They have just days to complete their next assignment and discover who has their back... and who wants to stick a knife into it.
It started with a kidnapping. A shadowy organization known only as the Vespers snatched seven members of the Cahill family and demanded a series of bizarre ransoms from around the world. Thirteen-year-old Dan Cahill and his older sister, Amy, began a global treasure hunt, determined to bring back whatever Vesper One needed, so long as it kept the hostages safe.
But when they deliver the last ransom, Amy and Dan discover Vesper One's terrifying endgame. The objects he demanded are vital pieces in a Vesper plot that will harm millions of innocent people. Now the two siblings and their friends are in an all-out sprint to stop Vesper One . . . before the whole world goes BOOM.

The Cahill family has a secret. For five hundred years, they have guarded the 39 Clues– thirty-nine ingredients in a serum that transforms whomever takes it into the most powerful person on earth. If the serum got into the wrong hands, the disaster would rock the world. So certain Cahills have always made it their mission to keep the serum safe, buried, locked away. Until now.
Thirteen-year-old Dan Cahill and his older sister, Amy, are the latest guardians of the Clues. They think they’ve done everything right, but a tiny mistake leads to catastrophe. The serum is missing and Dan and Amy have to get it back and stop who stole it . . . before it’s game over. For everyone.
As a member of the most powerful family history has ever known, thirteen-year-old Dan Cahill has been shot at, kidnapped, and even thrown into a pit with a deadly snake. He’s survived it all due to luck, smarts, and his older sister, Amy, who always sticks by his side.
Now Dan and Amy are facing their greatest threat yet, an enemy who has found a way to use the source of the Cahill family power against them. To stop him, Dan and Amy must set out on a desperate mission that will take them from one of the world’s hottest regions all the way to the frozen blast of the Arctic Circle. But with the enemy closing in, Dan finds himself facing one terror he never imagined — being betrayed by his own sister.
Dan and Amy have always managed to stay a step ahead of their enemies, but it was only a matter of time until luck failed them. Dan is hopelessly trapped and nothing can save him. Nothing except unleashing an evil into the world even worse than the enemies closing in. As Dan hovers between life and death, Amy has a terrifying decision to make. Just how far is she willing to go to save her little brother?
Tick tock. Fifteen-year-old Amy Cahill has only a few days to live. There’s a poison coursing through her, and her only chance is to collect ingredients for an antidote. Too bad the antidote’s ingredients are scattered around the world. And too bad that survival is by far Amy’s smallest problem. The antidote she needs is also the only thing capable of stopping a deadly enemy. J. Rutherford Pierce is on the brink of becoming the most powerful man in the world, and if he does, no one will be safe. Amy and her younger brother, Dan, will do everything it takes to bring Pierce down. Even if Amy must pay the ultimate price.
