Puzzles and secrets

The Maze of Bones  (The 39 Clues, #1)The Maze of Bones by Rick Riordan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Amy and Dan Cahill knew they had a big and varied extended family, but until their Grandma Grace died, they didn’t know how extensive and interesting. Their parents died years ago and their Great-Aunt Beatrice hired and fired au-pares to take care of them on the other side of town from her. At Grace Cahill’s funeral they and other relatives have the opportunity to set out on a scavenger hunt quest to discover family secrets. But everywhere they turn there seems to be a relative looking over their shoulder trying to rob them of the clues and get to the ultimate prize first: the key to the Cahill family power.

This is a fascinating read that is hard to put down. There are puzzles throughout that the reader can try to solve along with the characters.
