Summary of the Book
A game of cat and mouse…A strange telegram lures fourteen-year-old Amy Cahill and her younger brother, Dan, deep into Russia and away from the only trustworthy adult they know. Signed with the initials NRR, the telegram launches a race to uncover a treasure stolen by the Nazis and the truth behind the murder of the last Russian royal family. All too soon, the treasure hunt starts to smell like a Lucian trap. But the bait might just be irresistible…what will Amy and Dan risk to find out what really happened on the night their parents died?
Reviews of The Black Circle
This book has most of the features of the previous books in the series. We have a new author but, as with the previous books, the authorial voice, the characters, virtually everything is totally consistent. The plot inches forward as a new clue is uncovered but progress is also made in the ongoing subplot involving Amy and Dan’s parents.
A few new twists keep the book fresh. Amy and Dan’s au pair Nellie is completely offstage in this book although there is a broad hint that there is more to her than previously suspected. Our heroes spend the book jumping through the hoops held up by a mysterious benefactor who has a very interesting background.
Highly recommended. The series has been quite entertaining to this point. (by Jim Davis, amazon.com)
