The Mysterious Benedict Society is back with a new mission, significantly closer to home. After reuniting for a celebratory scavenger hunt, Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance are forced to go on an unexpected search--a search to find Mr. Benedict. It seems that while he was preparing the kids' adventure, he stepped right into a trap orchestrated by his evil twin Mr. Curtain.

With only one week to find a captured Mr. Benedict, the gifted foursome faces their greatest challenge of all--a challenge that will reinforce the reasons they were brought together in the first place and will require them to fight for the very namesake that united them.

But Cannonball bent close and asked her to put them away. “Not right now,” he said, with a significant look at a portly company owner who had just appeared on deck. “Sorry, but that fellow

Abandoning his half-nibbled mint cookie—eating seemed like a terrible idea all of a sudden—Reynie began to put away the tiny folding table, which was threatening to tip. Kate moved the treat tins to the floor, munching happily as she decided what to choose next. She seemed unfazed by the motion of the cabin. “So are we going to talk about what Constance did?” asked Sticky (who like Reynie had sadly given up on the cookies).

thanked Hubrecht and left. They didn’t make him show them the room. Doesn’t that strike you as odd?” “Probably they didn’t realize anything was in here,” Kate said. “They just thought Mr. Benedict rented a room for someone to stay in. Someone who hadn’t come yet.” “Yes, but they would want to know who he rented it for,” Reynie said. “And the best way for them to learn that would be—” His eyes widened. “We need to get out of here now.” “You think Daatje told them?” Sticky said, not wanting to
