By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Jan. 1 2009
Format: Hardcover
If you are a veteran of The Maze of Bones, you now know about the Cahill family and the race to find and solve the 39 clues, have visited the catacombs in Paris, and know the answer to the first clue (Shh! Don't tell!). In One False Note, you'll gain new perspectives on what it has meant in the past to be a Cahill, learn a lot about Mozart, gain a little knowledge about Venice, and find and solve a second clue (which you'll probably figure out on your own by drawing on what you learned from the first clue).

Once again, Amy and Dan are still off trying to find the 39 clues with a Mozart musical composition in the hand writing by the master himself. To save money, they are on a clunky train headed for Vienna. Dan's amazing memory turns out to be essential, Amy's willingness to put up with her brother keeps the peace, and au pair, Nellie Gomez, patiently does the heavy lifting where an adult is essential. All of them are worried about Saladin not being willing to eat cat food (being used to fresh red snapper) as the cat gets thinner and thinner. There's lots of action as the Cahills seek to thwart each other.

A major part of the story's charm is that the opposing Cahills are such dunces while having exaggerated opinions of themselves. It's not hard for Dan and Amy to outwit them at virtually every turn. But the youngsters still have a lot to learn about keeping what they know to themselves.

To me, the only thing better than a mystery . . . is an extended mystery. The idea of putting together all of these books, trading cards, and the Web site permits the mystery lover to enjoy the unknown (which is always so much more exotic than the known) for a long time. It's terrific.

As a stand-alone book, this one is pretty good.

By Steven R. McEvoy HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on March 27 2009
Format: Hardcover
Much as book 1, Maze of Bones, focused on the life and times of Benjamin Franklin, book 2, One False Note, focuses on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his sister Nannerl. Continuing almost immediately after book one, the pace of this one is much quicker. Moving from Paris to Vienna, the Cahill kids, Dan, Amy and their chaperon are ambushed by the big burly Holt clan. Narrowly escaping them, the dangers from other family members only intensifies. With more bombs, boat crashes, and run-ins with everyone from their aunts, uncles and cousins to Benedictine monks, this book is one wild chase scene.

The adventures in this book take our trio from Paris to Vienna then onto Salzburg then finally Venice. This book not only has a faster pace than book one, but also more dialogue. Some of that may be due to the writing style of the different authors, and some the point in the story arch and plot development. Gordon Korman does an excellent job continuing from the story started by Rick Riordan in Book 1.The transition is almost effortless. The feel is slightly different but the story continues to flow well.

It is interesting reading a series of 10 books with seven different authors, in part because we do not know how much freedom each author has. Do they write their section and hand it off and the next author has to create from there, or is there an overarching story arc already sketched out and the authors are composing the different scenes as movements in a musical piece? Either way this book is excellent and like the first leaves the reader hungry for more. I cannot honestly remember the last time I read a series that was so addictive. I picked up the next book immediately and dread when I will have to await the next release.

Format: Hardcover
After reading the first book in this series, I eagerly anticipated reading the second. Would it be as highly entertaining, filled with adventure, near-misses, and heart-stopping chases? You bet!

The story continues as the duo team of 14 year-old Amy Cahill and 11 year-old brother Dan Cahill travel to Austria and Italy to find the second clue in their quest to find the 39 Clues that will lead them to great power. In the first book we learned about Ben Franklin, and in this second we learn about Wolfgang Mozart and his sister, Nannerl. The same characters introduced in the first book--the power hungry relatives on the same hunt--return in this one, although they are not developed at all in this book. So if you haven't read the first book, The Maze of Bones, you may not appreciate them as rivals.

This panoply of characters with their distinct and quirky personalities have their strengths which Amy and Dan must supercede to win the race to find all 39 Clues. For this reason I strongly suggest reading the first book before any of the others. In the first book we learn that Amy and Dan's parents died mysteriously and we meet their grandmother, Grace Cahill, who introduces this chase through her will, after she dies. The second book makes references to these events and others, as well. I am more than positive revelations about their family will be explored in upcoming books.

I also noted that each book is written by different authors. As of today 6 of the 10 books are available for purchase.
