Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The Vespers have crossed a line. Amy and Dan were devastated when the Vespers kidnapped seven Cahills around the world, holding them hostage until Amy and Dan delivered an impossible ransom. But at least the hostages were Cahills - members of the world's most powerful family, trained to face all odds.<br> <br> Now the Vespers have gone too far. They've kidnapped Atticus, an innocent 11 year old boy and Dan's only friend. Now Dan and Amy are in the struggle of their lives. Because if they can't outwit the Vespers, the unthinkable will happen . . . Atticus will die.

Siblings Amy and Dan must find another way to outwit the Vespers when they target and kidnap Dan's only friend, eleven-year-old Atticus.

Horn Book Review

Eager to save their kidnapped family members, siblings Dan (thirteen) and Amy (sixteen), continue to take orders from their enemy, Vesper One. Crisscrossing the world, the Cahills search for ancient artifacts, while dodging Interpol and the conniving Wyoming siblings from the clue hunt. The high-stakes (if formulaic) plot moves quickly and builds suspense, while historical facts are woven into the stories.
