Grace Cahill dies and leaves her orphaned grandchildren, Amy, 14, and Dan, 11, with a choice. Do they, and other descendants, want a million dollars, or do they want a clue that will set them on a search that will change the world? David Pittu's narration stresses the adventures of the siblings’ quest as they seek clues from Philadelphia to the catacombs of Paris. Pittu's delivery enlivens the story with dialogue that portrays fearful Amy and daredevil Dan, as well as providing characterizations of their many competitors in the search. How can the two triumph over their malicious elderly uncle and devious cousins? This is the first book of a projected series of 10, written by favorite children's authors and tied to online games and the chance to win a sweepstakes.
