We’re baaack! But you knew that already. Surely you’ve already seen/read/devoured/gaped-in-awe-at-the-cover-of The Medusa Plot, Gordon Korman’s nail-biting first book of The 39 Clues: Cahills Vs. Vespers series which was released in August. If you haven’t, do it now. I dare you to read it in one sitting. And hang on to your hat, Jude Watson’s extraordinary Book 2: A King’s Ransom comes out on December 6th.

I am here today to reveal, for the first time, some exclusive news about my entry in The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers series, Book 3!

- Its publication date is March 6, 2012
- The cover looks like this:
For The Dead of Night, I’ve plunged into historical research with a vengeance, taking the adventure to some jaw-dropping locales you may never have heard of but will want to put on your bucket list — and involving a revolutionary leader who was one of history’s great geniuses and who died with a 500-year-old secret. Not to mention some unusual character twists you will not see coming.
Can you guess which historical figure I wrote about in Book 3, a great leader who was also a revolutionary scientist? (Hint: the cover will guide you.) Which historical figure would you like to see in The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers series?
